I only just this morning on the way to work caught a misheard lyric for the first time. In Mr. Popeil, I always heard, "How does the bacon feel?" I know that doesn't really make a lot of sense, but I never really second guessed it.

I don't blame you. I never second-guess bacon either.

I just figured out a line in Albuquerque. I never thought of it for topics like this, but I could never understand the line after "...And he gave me a Colonic Irrigation." I always heard "Yes indeed you bet I'm a leavin'!" I figured that wasn't right, but I never got it.

For years I heard that Frank's 2000" TV had a two year warrantee on "parts and label."

When I was younger, in Cavity Search I heard "Jabbered minor vendings". I thought maybe this meant something meaningful I just didn't understand. This was the 90's so I was like 8 or 9.

As a kid,I was never sure the lyric the background singers are saying in Midnight Star. The closest I could figure is "Tell me, tell me, tell me, how to make my bus ride go! Midnight Star I wanna know!"

Used to sing "Tell me, tell me, tell me, how to make my kush light grow!" But obviously I knew Al would not write a lyric about growing weed. I still sing it that way though. Anybody know the actual line?
