    Oh, yeah, I hate that. I decided long ago to just pretend it's "in this ever-changin' world in which we're livin'..."

    Are you sure about that? We're reading and posting in a thread about a Phil Collins song that came out 28 years ago as of next month. :D

    I'm 99 percent sure that contradiction was intentional.

    Somebody misheard some lyrics! The correct ones (That make perfect sense) are:

    Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
    Cos you're not anywhere
    That I can find you
    Oh now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
    Cos you're not anywhere that I can find you, oh no

    Why do people always have to beat up on Phil Collins? It gets old. The guy wrote good songs and is an actual great "player" who earned his living in an industry totally opposed to short bald men. (And for the record, Genesis was not such an amazing band w Gabriel anyway.)

    On paper that should make him a hero on a forum with a moderately high ratio of ugly balding men.

    Less a contradiction than a colloquialism.

    I saw miles and miles of Texas,

    In "Tennessee Border," Hank says "I picked her up in a pickup truck and she broke this heart of mine."

    But then the next thing you know, he reports that "We got married on the Tennessee border."

    If he shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die, why is he in Folsom prison?

    It rained all night the day I left
    The weather it was dry
    The sun so hot, I froze to death
    Susannah, don't you cry.

    Oh, Susannah,
    Oh don't you cry for me
    For I come from Alabama
    With a banjo on my knee.

    The elephant is a funny bird,
    It flits from bough to bough,
    It makes it's nest in the rhubarb tree,
    And whistles like a cow.

    That song by Charles and Eddy

    "Look into my eyes can't you see they're open wide
    would I lie to you baby, would I lie to you?
    Oh yeah."
