I tried to type blindfolded,actually just closed my eyes and pressed the keyboard letters one by one with my index finger to write a song line that's on my mind. When I looked at the screen, I just misspelled all the words.All targets were miss hit one key away. Only the spacebar was pressed correctly every time. Can you guess what I tried to write? The screen output:

JB FUR H4VLHJJMT K JUX8BSFDW5KIX VYY MID UPC3 RIG UH. YB4 QLGC JX VP;S

  • $\begingroup$ Are you absolutely sure about the D of MID? (I'm not particularly sure it's wrong, just a little surprised.) $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Apr 4 at 23:50
  • $\begingroup$ Is every non-space character guaranteed to be wrong, or might it be just some of them? $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Apr 4 at 23:55
  • $\begingroup$ D is a key off the target $\endgroup$ – TSLF Apr 4 at 23:56
  • $\begingroup$ The way my keyboard is laid out, I really don't think it quite is. I suppose it's a matter of definition, though. $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Apr 5 at 0:07
  • $\begingroup$ QWERTY, I assume. This might be very different with, say a Dvorak layout. $\endgroup$ – user45266 Apr 5 at 17:42

The song is

The Word by the Beatles.

The lyrics go:

In the beginning I misunderstood but now I've got it, the word is good
