The Story: Don't eat the fruit in the garden, Eden,, It wasn't in God's natural plan., You were only a rib,, And look at what you did,, To Adam, the father of Man.
The Story: You smell like goat, I'll see you in hell
The Story: All the b***h had said, all been washed in black
The Story: And my blunt is my ho now
The Story: At home, drawing pictures, Of mounds of tots, With ham on top
Was listening to this as an ∞8∞ year old on a lil'
'National-Panasonic 7-transistor radio'(with the
little strap & the cream colored 'crystal' ear-
piece) the local Top 4O AM station in the NYC
Metro Area, & didn't catch the label the D.J.
gave, but knew it was The Beatles due to their
unmistakable & fab '4our-part harmony' (counting
"Ringo's" Ludwig drum set), but only heard the
"...hold me, l♥ve me, hold me, l♥ve me..." & the
"...I ain't got nutthin' but l♥ve babe,
hey say Louise!"
It didn't help matters much that I just recently
saw Maurice Chevalier on early 1966 B&W TV in The
Marx Bros. "Monkey Business" (hey, hey we're "The
Monkees"?) whom the Beatles were always being
compared to at the time (The Marx Bros. not "The
Monkees" ;D) in a cameo singing "You Brought a New
Kind of L♥ve to Me" w/ the line "...if the
nightingales could sing like you..." (& your bird
can sing? Hmmm...) & also saw him doing "Louise"
on some TV show, so it was only natural since the
Beatles' "Michelle" just came out with it's,
"Michelle, ma belle", sont des mots qui vont très
bien ensemble...", in French no less, my lil' ∞8∞
year old brain was confused & thought they were
continuing that Gallic frame-of-mind regarding the
fair "Louise" that Monsieur Chevalier started sooo
long ago (I found out later - in 1929!);
The French stuff confusion in my baffled mind was
further exacerbated when they later released "All
You Need Is Love" (luv) with "La Marseillaise" at
the beginning of the tune.
Then when I went to see "Casino Royale" (the funny
one) in late '67, the first opening scene with
star Peter Sellers had graffiti that read 'Les
Beatles', & though Sellers was one of the 'James
OO7 Bond' imposter's in it, he was also (in his
day job) Inspector Jacques Clouseau- another
Frenchman -as well.
Considering all this, how could it NOT be
"...hey say Louise...", right?
Boy was I a MAJOR dummy when it was revealed to me
much later- 2 years later -that the 'once-&-
future' "Sgt. Pepper's =Lonely Hearts= Club Band"
as their alter-egos The Beatles instead of the
stupid "Hey say Louise" were actually singing the
perfectly logical sounding "8ight days a week.∞"!
"Every little breeze seems to whisper..." ;D

You mean Louise Bourgeois, the artist? Clever.

Bourgeois? Chevalier may have been familiar with.

The Beatles may very well have sung "Hey Say Louise" (even though they didn't) as George Harrison's sister is named Louise, as well as Paul McCartney's (then) future first wife, Linda Louise Eastman. Wonder if Maurice Chevalier was aware of this?

Yes. And did you ever hear Maurice Chevalier sing "Le Sous-Marin Vert"?
Betelgeuse Nov 20, 2011 1:25 pm
Ever see that Monkees episode that had them doing essentially "A Hard Day's Night" in Paris? Shot on very grainy film, like The Beatles' own "Magical Mystery Tour", or like a documentary.

Ha! Yeah they sing that in the background on "Paperback Writer". You've good ears man.
