    Spoiler:


    At 105 I hear:

    "Someone chasing a cannibal"

    I began to suspect I was hearing it wrong and later thought I was hearing:

    " Someone chasing a caribou"

    In reality it is:

    "Someone chasing; I cannot move."

    it was nearly two decades from the song's release before I wrote to the fan site for clarification. (This video has it wrong too. But MUCH closer than I)

    I have misheard countless lyrics,
    But the worst, and most persistant, is my mishearing of Manfred Mann's "Blinded By the Light"...
    I hear "wrapped up like a douche"
    But its really
    "Revved up like a deuce".

    I would assume it's based on this:

    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    It doesn't get Eddie Vedder than this...



    Eddie Vedder would use different lyrics every time he sang the song live.

    These are the "official" lyrics. I put official in scare quotes because there are no official lyrics.

    Spoiler:


    Unsealed, on a porch a letter sat
    Then you said, "I wanna leave it again"
    Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand
    And on the sand I wanna leave her again

    On a weekend I wanna wish it all away, yeah
    And they called and I said that I'll go
    And I said that I'll call out again
    And the reason I ought ta leave her calm, I know
    I said, "I don't know whether I'm the boxer or the bag"

    Oh yeah, can you see them, out on the porch?
    Yeah, but they don't wave
    I see them 'round the front way, yeah
    And I know, and I know I don't wanna stay

    Make me cry

    I see oh, I don't know why there's something else
    I want to, wanna drum it all away
    I said, "I don't, I don't know whether I was the boxer or the bag"

    Oh yeah, can you see them, out the on porch?
    Yeah, but they don't wave
    I see them 'round the front way
    And I know, and I know I don't want to stay at all
    I don't want to stay
    I don't want to stay
    I don't want to stay
    I don't, I don't want to stay

    When I was a kid I used to think "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers was actually "Secret Asian Man." Don't know why the Asian man was a secret, but I thought he was.


    And that's a 4th on the "wrapped up like a douche." I'd swear that he's actually saying that!

    I knew the Springsteen song lyrics, so I never though it said douche. It does sound like it though. You can tell that Springsteen says deuce.

    "Bad Moon Rising"

    I see the bad moon a-rising
    I see trouble on the way
    I see earthquakes and lightning
    I see bad times today

    Don't go around tonight
    Well, it's bound to take your life
    There's a bad moon on the rise

    I hear hurricanes a-blowing
    I know the end is coming soon
    I fear rivers overflowing
    I hear the voice of rage and ruin

    Don't go around tonight
    Well, it's bound to take your life
    There's a bad moon on the rise

    I believe Bruce (yes...we are on a first name basis...but for some reason he calls me "Dick" and sometimes Bruce calls me "Who the fuck is that guy at the window??!! Wendy! Call the cops!!" Bruce didn't have a lot of luck with the tune on his 1973 album, Greetings From Ashbury Park, N.J. but yes, Bruce wrote the song and claims the lyrics are:


    "cut lose like a Deuce"



    This refers the popular 1932 Ford. This was the first production offering of an V-8 cylinder engine in America and lead to America's decades long fascination with the 8-cylinder engine until the oil embargo's of the 1970's. After the embargo, the "V" piston configuration continued and still does to this day in many V- 6-cylinder versions and some 4 cylinder versions.


    If I must explain, the "2" at the end of the year of production is, in Spanish, is translated as "Deuce." The car was made popular later by The Beach Boys' album Little Deuce Coup and the hit song from that album of the same name.





    In 1976 the song reached it's full fame as a cover by Manfrerd Mann's Earth Band. The band made some changes including the lyrics.."cut lose like a Deuce" being changed to "revved up like a deuce" referring to racing up that V-8 engine. The Manfrerd Mann's Earth Band version was #1 and Springsteen's highest ranking tune, as a songwriter on the Billboard 100 until the USA For Africa collaboration.


    1932 Ford Coupe (Little Deuce Coupe)

    It's likely you are thinking of the Manfred Mann's Earth Band cover with the keyboard heavy. It is more clear in Brice's version. Bruce relies on horns more:

    I know two different people (that have never met) that thought the main lyric in AC/DC's Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap was Dirty Deeds, Dunder Chief.

    Ok, this one is embarissing, but when I was 12ish, I thought in "Another one bites the Dust" they were saying "another buster duster". This was back in the day when the dust buster was a new thing. Why anyone would sing about a hand held vacuum was beyond me.
