Anahootz Dept. of Misheard Lyrics (36) RE: BS: Dept. of Misheard Lyrics 14 Feb 02

I thought the springsteen lyric was "cut loose like a deuce, another roamer in the night".

At any rate, John Prine's "greatest hits" has a song called "that's the way that the world goes 'round" which contains the chorus "'s a half an inch of water and you think you're going to drown".

While singing the song, he relates a story of a woman who asks him to sing the song about the happy enchilada. He says "I've never written a tune about an enchilada, much less a happy one", to which she replies "oh yes, you say 'it's a happy enchilada and you think you're going to drown'".

Prine says "glad you liked the song, ma'am"
