    It doesn't mean anything special. The Beatles were just having fun.

    Song lyrics don't have to make sense. They're not a good learning resource.

    Dear Senior Member,

    (1) I found an interesting opinion (ONLY an opinion) on the Web.

    (2) Irene Higginson, professor of palliative [ = to relieve pain] care

    and policy, King's College and St. Christopher's Hospice, London, wrote:

    "Twist and Shout" by the Beatles gives good advice about

    how to negotiate the birth canal and about expected behaviour

    in the first few minutes of life!

    THANK YOU

    Dear Parser,

    I always find your posts fantastic, but I think this even better. It made my day! (Which is actually over, but I guess I shouldn't say, "It made my night!")
