Stop and Eat A Waffle

If you’re ever around Dad when “In My Life” comes on the radio then you’ll hear his bumm-bum-buh-buhm bah-bum vocal bass accompaniment, of course. But you’ll also hear him sing along to the part that goes, “I know I’ll often stop and think about them…” except he’ll replace the words with something he made up as a younger, more svelte man, “I know I’ll often stop and eat a waffle…”

And of course, in an Anthology version of “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road” John reworks the lyrics to “Why don’t you put it on the toast!”

I’m not saying you’re wrong or anything, but 1) John doesn’t sing “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road”; 2) Paul sings and plays everything on that song except the drums; 3) My Anthology doesn’t seem to have the put it on the toast remark.

I like the waffle remark. I don’t think Dad does stop very often to eat them. Maybe this can be remedied?

Well if it’s not on that song then it’s somewhere on the Anthology. Trust me. It exists and John sings it.

I don’t want to trust you, I want to hear it for myself. Please give better directions. Thank you.

The last time I stopped to eat a waffle was in Lehi at Christmas and the darned thing stuck to the waffle iron and pulled apart when I tried to remove it.
