Though I've never heard the lyric as this, I think that this is the most sensible mishearing of this lyric so far. grin wink

Sensible mishearing? Wow, what a concept.

Funnily enough, I remember this particular programme. I was in Hall Green, Birmingham, just up the road from the Lucas factory. Was on a course, and staying at a guest house there. The episode was Dee D Jackson's only appearance on the show. I bought the record.


Ah, the Lucas factory! Everyone worked at Lucas in those days! wink smiley (I'm not scared to admit that but I would be scared to admit about that single! grin grin grin)

Not so much misheard lyrics but I've got a 3 Sides Live Songbook (published in Britain by Chappell). Clearly the person responsible for the lyrics on In the Cage has interpreted these lyrics from listening (even when the lyrics were printed on the album sleeve) For instance

In the Cage:

Original: Im dressed up in a white costume -Padding out leftover room
Songbook:Im dressed up in a white costume -Padded out with golden plumes

Original: It's just like 22nd street
Songbook: It's just like twanging second string

Original: I know that I am solid. And I am my own bad luck.
Songbook:I know that I am solid. And I am my own man's son

This is the official songbook grin

Thought I'd resurrect this thread again as I was just watching TOTP 1979 and realised another misheard lyric. grin

For all those years I wondered what on earth a foggle was, in Art Garfunkel's Bright Eyes:

"There's a foggle on the horizon."

Hearing it tonight I thought I'd look it up! It's "There's a fog along the horizon!" grin grin grin Peeing meself laughing now!

I also have this songbook. Always made me laugh.
Its common with sheet music though. Because most bands cant actually write music, someone just listens to it and works out how it goes. Most times the band has no input in the process at all. Of course with Genesis, Tony could have done this but I expect there is probably some musicians union law that "worker outers" have to do the job.

Got my own misheard lyric I realised at the weekend.
I always though in Ripples it was......

For now a man must change
For now her face looks strange.

When in fact its
For an hour a man must change
For an hour her face looks strange.

I’m probably still mishearing some Genesis lyrics even now, but I do remember wondering what a “man hat” was when I first heard the opening lines of “The Lamb” (“Early morning, man hat on” huh wink )
