Thread Name: Lyr Req: Crazy Man Michael (Richard Thompson)
Subject: Crazy Man Michael Misheard lyric?
Someone told me at a festival recently that I sang one of the words of this wrongly. If this is correct both the DT and the RT official site are also wrong.

I can't remember what the correct word was supposed to be as it was something mystical and ancient, but the very nice man who explained all this to me was very definite about it and said that he had checked when the same error was pointed out to him. He also said that this single word was crucial to understanding the whole song as Michael was trapped not by a kiss oh,but by some mystical creature whose name escapes me.

Does anyone know anything about this? I can't seem to find my copy of Liege and Leaf at the moment. In the meantime I think I shal continue to sing the words I have been singing.

thanks
Robbie
