Um. Untrue?

The words for, you, and blue appear in "For You Blue," but not in their titular order. And perhaps my all-time favorite: "Tomorrow Never Knows."

The biggies that're missing are "The Ballad Of John And Yoko", "The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill", and "The Inner Light".

"Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite" sneaks in one word shy of its complete title, as do both "Revolution 1" and "Revolution 9".

What about "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)"?

Just funnin'.

There's also various tunes from the Anthology releases: "What's the New Mary Jane," "12-Bar Original," etc.
