The idea that the lyrics are "So, I lit a fire..." is clearly just an urban myth--the carelessness of an early transcriber becoming the accepted reality for all eternity. I the magazine Rolling Stones, "100 greatest Beatles songs", among the first 20 songs, Lennon has 11 or 12, !
Mc Cartney has 4, Harrison 2 and Lennon-Mc Cartney have 2 or 3.

Someone who can essentially seduce anyone he wants isn't going to be so upset at a frustrating evening that he torches a woman's home for not putting out.
