At 7 minutes long, Hey Jude is the longest song to ever top the charts in the UK or the US.

It stayed on the US charts for nine weeks, which was a record at the time.

Not bad for the first release from The Beatles’ new Apple record label.

It seems like almost everybody knows the lyrics to the chorus, which repeats ad nauseum for like four minutes…

Seriously.

Here’s the whole final chorus written out:

Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude

That doesn’t include the part where Paul goes, “Ju-Ju-da-Judy-Judy-Judy-JuDAY!” of course.

Nor the part where he drops an f-bomb:

It’s in the version of the song that was on the top of the charts for nine weeks – the same version you’ve always heard on the radio. They never changed it. The never took it out.

If you snag any copy of Hey Jude, from vinyl through MP3, you can hear it, as long as you listen for it.

Not convinced? Take a listen for yourself, below. Be warned: once you hear it (and it might take you a couple passes), you’ll probably never NOT hear it again.

It’s a point of no return thing.

*UPDATE* the person who made this video incorrectly cite John Lennon. It is Paul McCartney who swears.
