Subject: RE: Misheard words
I went to college with a girl called called Vicky, who was one day singing along to the Eagle's hit "Desperado". The words should have been

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses,

You've been out riding fences for so long now

Vicky was singing

You've been outright offensive for so long now! Every time I hear this song, I can't help becoming helpless with laughter as I'm transported back to 1976!

My own most recent error showed my lack of knowledge of qotes from the Bible. We were taught a round at a folk camp "Now evr'y man 'neath his vine and fig tree, shall live in peace and unafraid......" I sang "Now ev'ry man 'neath his violent victory...!" I actually sang this for several years before someone noticed! (It was pointed out by a good friend of mine called Brian Pengelley who has been known by many of the children he taught as Mr Pink Jelly!)
