The Beatles', "What You're Doing"
Misheard Lyrics:
You've got me running
And, there's point in it.
Original Lyrics:
You've got me running
And, there's no fun in it.
These lyrics were misheard by whomever was transcribing them for The Beatles' cartoon show, for that is how they appeared in the 'sing-along' segment. (Editor's note: "Fun" is the correct word, not "point"; I have heard the recording and it clearly sounds like "fun", and lyrics sites confirm it. So this should end any dispute.)
