    What kind of sense does that make?
    No, really.
    What is the lyric here?
    Why would you ask about linen?

    I always thought that it meant, "Hey let's not get too serious and start picking out the linen for our bedroom. I just want to "see" you tonight. Oh well. Always thought it was a little strange.

    To further beat a dead horse, I thought it said I'm not talking' 'bout the limit
    or I'm not talking' 'bout the lemon. It wasn't until I saw the lyrics on some sheet music that I
    saw how wrong I'd been hearing it. Boy, did I feel stupid...

    A lot of people seem to think that in "Hotel California" the line goes: "Her mind is Tiffany-twisted; she's got a Mercedes-Benz".

    It doesn't. It's cleverer than that and goes: "...she's got the Mercedes bends".

    I know I've posted it before and funnily enough talking about today but in ELOs Strange Magic I swear they sing "strain my d1ck" in the later chorus'
