Thread Name: What are the worst lyric screwups you've
Subject: RE: What are the worst lyric screwups you've
Speaking of Hendrix -- Jimi himself was guilty of screwing up the lyrics to Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower": instead of "none of them along the line know what any of it is worth" he recorded something like "now the landlord's on the line mumble mumble words". I just saw his performance from the Isle of Wight Festival on TV, and he obviously doesn't know what the lyric is. Now that's lazy for ya!
Then there's the old Free song "All right now" with the line "Let's move before they raise the parking rate" which a buddy of mine heard as "Before they raise the f**king rent".
