Ah, I've got one: for a while here on the SDMB, I have posted to Best Lyric-type threads with this. Also, there's been a recent, kerfuffly Beatles Suck thread where "you show me your best Beatles lyric and I will show you better!!!!" was tossed down all gauntlet-y (and shit). If it would've been productive, I would've posted it again there.

The Beatles, When I Saw Her Standing There: "She was just seventeen, you know what I mean."

Paul thought it was stupid. He trotted it out as filler while he was trying to sell the song to John.

John knew it was clever. Because, yeah, we knew exactly what Paul meant. He told Paul "no way, keep it in!!"

Fuckin' A. I love that.
