It was at the end of Strawberry Fields. Lennon says "Raspberry sauce" but people heard "I buried Paul".

A couple more: The Wizard by Black Sabbath was either written about the band's dealer or Gandalf from Lord of the Rings.

Have you Ever seen rain? by CCR was written to Tom Fogerty after he quit the band.

One of my favorite cryptic references is from "Dream On" by Aerosmith. "Every time I look in the mirror, all these lines on my face are gettin' clearer".

And lastly Walk On The Wild Side by Lou Reed. It's about a transsexual hooker. I used to listen to the song growing up and I had no idea what I was listening to.
Classy grip all day.
