    Same here, except it was "my linen", as in "I'm not talkin' about going to bed with you".

    Same here!

    Same here! But I finally figured out that didn't rhyme correctly.

    Instead of: Forever in blue Jeans

    I thought he said: For reverend blue jeans.

    A priest in blue jeans...

    I always heard it as 'Honest Lucille', thinking they were singing about Lucille Ball.

    Here's another one from 'Sweet Home Alabama'.

    'In Birmingham they love the gun now.
    Now we've all seen what it can do.
    A woman's gaze does not bother me.
    Does your conscious bother you?
    Tell the truth'.

    I figured the narrator was involved in a murder/cover-up and he was paranoid the he'd been seen by someone and/or he might let slip what he'd done.

    Kenny Rogers singing about a racing accident:

    "You picked a fine time to leave me, loose wheel..."

    On another related note, the song "Groovin' (on a Sunday Afternoon)" by the Young Rascals was a stumper for me for awhile:

    A bit risqué indeed. Especially since we don't even know whether Leslie is a boy or a girl!

    One time I did hear someone singing the wrong lyrics to AC/DC's "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'N Roll)":

    Was that song Joanie's got a gun or Jodie's got a gun?

    "The Green Green Grass of Home" by Johnny Cash, Tom Jones, Porter Wagoner, many others:

    "There's a guard, and there's a sad old padre..."​

    As a kid I heard:
    "There's a guard, and there's a saddle padre..."

    I thought it was like a preacher in a Western or something.
