They did two, I Want to Hold Your Hand and She Loves You only because the German division of EMI (the parent of The Beatles' British record label Parlophone Records) decided that the only way to sell Beatles records in Germany would be to re-record them in German. The Beatles thought it unnecessary, but were asked by George Martin to comply, recording "Sie Liebt Dich" on 29 January 1964, along with "Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand", at the Pathe Marconi Studios in Paris. The Beatles recorded new vocals over the original backing track to "I Want to Hold Your Hand" but "She Loves You" required them to record a new rhythm track as the original two track recording had been scrapped. Both songs were translated by Luxembourger musician Camillo Felgen, under the pseudonym of "Jean Nicolas".

We always called that song One Ton 'a Maalox.

What about Sur Le Pont, D'Avignon, en y dance, en y dance--or something like that. The "dance" part might be incorrect.
