What Miles Heard

Miles likes the Rolling Stones. This is how he heard the chorus of the song "Happy":

I need a loan to make me happy!

Good one!

I like the misheard ... my wife is fond of "boldface lie" in place of "bald-faced lie" -- a type-setter's metaphor replacing a horse-trader's, I guess.

In Miles' case, I can already hear the song being used as a soundtrack for a bank commercial... "I need a loan to keep me happy..."

Just make sure Miles gets these lines right: "never want to be like papa, working for the boss every night and day." Of course he may see no relevance since he knows YOU were never employed by Bruce Springsteen...

I promptly misattributed your second quotation from "Happy," even though you were obviously quoting it. I heard this:

Left a good job in the city,
working for the man every night and day.

But that is another song. :-)
