    Just heard the newscaster say during the break to stay tuned tonight to hear from their "meaty urologist". This should be fun!

    Well “Excuse me while I kiss this guy” is what I heard for awhile from Jimi Hendrix, I was a young teenager when I first heard it.

    "There's a bathroom on the right" by CCR

    and "Hold me closer Tony Danza" is just classic.

    I was in the hospital for nerve pain problems. A doctor came into the room and introduced herself as a urologist. Taken aback, I cautiously and slowly wondered aloud what role urology plays in my situation. "Neurologist," she corrected me.

    My friend Terry would sing:
    “I can pee clearly now, the pain is gone......

    Ah, 5th grade humor, from senior citizens

    Did it hurt when she corrected you?

    I have a bootleg Danny Gatton album called "The Humbler" with Robert Gordon, and in one song entitled "Black Slacks", I swear he sings "When I put 'em on I'm with President Obama"! The album was recorded in '82!

    Wow, my brother's ex wife Leslie thought that line was "Life would be ecstasy, you and me Leslie". Apparently she had the impression they were singing directly to her.

    The other day I was listening to a song by the Nashville band Pontiac Alley and heard this:
    I never knew your face was the color of your hair

    Huh? What?

    Closer listening revealed:
    I never knew your face, or the color of your hair

    Which, in the context of singing about an as-yet unencountered love, works quite a bit better.

    My kid @ 4 or 5 years of age thought the Beatles were singing, "Happy as a raptor in the marketplace,,,"

    I've always heard ( mis heard ) a chorus line in ELOs " Strange Magic " as " strain my dick "

    I am absolutely certain that they are having a dig at the censors of the day

    My friends daughter heard the lyrics of a song at church that said "this world has nothing for me" as "this squirrel has nothing for me."
