Oh my gawd!! That’s what they said! I love Long Cool Woman! “5- 9, beautiful & tall” ?? I always thought, seriously, it is “as fine as a beautiful song”. And The moneybags line? NEVER knew what it was.

not a song lyric but a friend's little daughter who was 5 years old and always liked grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch
said one day "we always have girl cheese sandwiches, what about the boy cheese sandwiches why don't we ever have those?"

OMG, that reminds me of when I worked briefly with a guy young enough to be my son, & we somehow started talking about the Cal Worthington commercials...they were always on TV in SoCal. This guy was sure that Cal was saying “horsey-cow, horsey-cow, horsey-cow”. WHAT? I must have laughed for an hour...but I think your story beats mine!

the actual lyrics: "I was born in a cross fire hurricane, and I howled at my ma in the drivin' rain"


i thought it was "i was born in a class by her cave, and an owl at the ball at the driving range"

California Dreamin' by the Mamas and the Papas:
I thought they were singing "Well, I got down on my knees, and I began to pray." It's really "I pretend to pray." Changes the entire meaning of the song.

Till today I always thought it was "Well, I got down on my knees and I began to pray".
