More misheard lyrics
I keep listening to February and it sounds like:

When you say I'm a snake
Take me out purple rake...

Purple rake?!

The words are:
"Verbal Rake"

I like it because there are so many variations that fans have come up with, I've heard so many already. Its really interesting what people will assume I've said. Here are a few people have asked me about...

Purple rage
Circle hate
Curse what's fake

Purple rake, my foot! Actually, I still get asked about this a bunch, even with the lyrics page. Its cool though, cause I always think back to zach's question about "purple rake" - maybe I'll start telling them those are the real words, just to get the rumor going.

You know, I was looking at these old posts, and it occurred to me that we have songs that were just as "misheard" as the ones on our "misheard lyrics" post. "excuse me while I kiss this guy" type stuff. Now all we have to do is get as many fans as jimi, and we'll be all set!
