The Beatles' Paul McCartney has revealed that the legendary band secretly slipped in swearing on the album Abbey Road as a joke.

McCartney was referring to the lyrics of song "Sun King," which included the phrase "chica ferdy."

"There was a thing in Liverpool that us kids used to do, which was instead of saying 'f**k off,' we would say 'chicka ferdy!'" McCartney told The Mirror.

"In that song we just kind of made up things, and we were all in on the joke. We were thinking that nobody would know what it meant, and most people would think, 'Oh, it must be Spanish,' or something. But, we got a little seditious word in there!" he added.
