2 (DVD), but there was one more change to be made. I finished school and my sister moved to California to attend school out there.

Three live takes were made of the complete song with all four group members playing their usual instruments with all lead and background singing. Take three was deemed the best.
Three overdubs were then performed on top of take three, which included extra guitar flourishes from George Harrison, double-tracked lead vocals during the verses, and Ringo playing maracas. This took the song to take six, which completed the song as we hear it today.

Song Structure and Style. The structure of this song is a unique one for The Beatles thus far. We see here a back-and-forth pattern between a refrain and a verse. George replies to every warning with disbelief, as he does twice in the first refrain alone. Because of the chord structure of the verses, they actually act as a bridge between each refrain. This segues into another refrain identical in structure except for different replies from George in his answer lyrics.
Then into another verse which also is identical in structure and style apart from different lyrics. The final refrain is completely identical to the third refrain except that it is extended to sixteen measures to act as a suitable ending.
Instead of the fade-out ending of the original version by The Donays, the group brings the song to a Devil In Her Heart - The Beatles - The Beatles conclusion similar to how they ended it when played live at The Cavern and Devil In Her Heart - The Beatles - The Beatles .

There was one inadvertent error made as well due to them trying Devil In Her Heart - The Beatles - The Beatles decipher the lyrics from the original His drum style throughout has a rumba rhythm which, with the maraca overdub, creates a convincing Latin feel. His open hi-hat sound, common with early Beatle songs, gives the song a fullness and drive that is lacking on the original version.
Also noteworthy is the background vocals of John and Paul, which emphasize an effective "nagging" quality that is appropriate to the lyrics of the song. Although the rhythm guitar Dont Hang Up On Romance - Chez Sauvage - Your Place Or Mine? bass are rudimentary throughout, Lennon and McCartney provide these essential ingredients to create the full picture and round out an impressive cover version of an obscure song.

First off, notice that George reverted to singing " no, not me will she deceive " at this point instead of " no, no, nay will she deceive " as on the original Beatles recording. Also, George repeats the lyrics of the first verse during the third verse, singing " but her eyes they tantalize This would seem to indicate that it was difficult to perform both at the same time during this live studio recording.
