O-U-T spells "out" ... quick question
« on: April 08, 2007, 09:52:47 PM »

Sorry if I'm being a bit thick here but the Beatles song 'Christmas time (is here again)' has puzzled me for ages and I wan't to get to the bottom of it!

so the lyrics are pretty much

Christmas time is here again
Christmas time is here again
Christmas time is here again
Christmas time is here again

Ain't been round since you know when
Christmas time is here again
O-U-T spells "out"

What is the whole 'O.U.T. spells out thing that Ringo sings?? I don't understand it in any way whatsoever- what is it's relevance?!

Maybe it has no relevance!

I Love the Xmas tapes. I know that in SA we palyed a game where you clap your hands while saying a rhyme-type-of-thing. The end of the rhyme was "O-U-T spells out" and whoever said the out (as we all said a word while seating in a circle) was out. Any help?

I like it when you hear one of the Beatles in the background, probably Lennon, do a childish 'Na-na, na-na-na!'
