I see the postings where we're all trying to figure out what the heck someone was singing on an old recording (or sometimes a new one.) Some of the guesses are downright hilarious. Unintentionally. My favorite sincerely mis-heard line from a folk song comes from a kid I knew back when I was in High School. He'd walk donw the hall singing "So long, it's Fingers Gunnolia!" at the top of his lungs. I thought it was a song about a gangster. You probably know the song as So Long, It's Been Good To Know Ya."
