The Beatles - Yellow Submarine

Your not going crazy. This post is not about Linux or any other OS.
It's about I need your help or maybe I'm going crazy.
Back in the day, the Beatles songs were all over the airwaves. Every radio station was playing them. And one song sticks out in my mind because I can't find it or any info about it. That being Yellow Submarine by the Beatles.

But not the versions I keep coming across. I'm not that crazy or dense! LOL!!
The version I remember sounded like all the others I came across except for one part.

In the easily found version there is a part where you hear the sub noises and crew talking through the intercom with the final words of Tip it! Tip it!

The version that was played over the radio and on the juke boxes in my area had the words Dive! Dive!

Now I don't know if that was some kind of local area remix or if we have had the originals polluted by re-issues and re-masters and I haven't come across the true original?

So I am asking for your help. If anyone knows what album or release that version of Yellow Submarine is from, I sure would appreciate a shout in the comments section.

And thanks to any who can help me.

Hi Rok,
Thanks for that info.
I think the version heard in my local area may have been a remix version or an embellished version as I can't find any version with those lyrics.

Now I may have thought I was going crazy but after talking with other people my age from the area, they also remember hearing this song with those lyrics.

May try and contact some of the old radio D.J.'s in the area and see if they know more about that version.

Thanks again!
