Pellican Taco

Pellican Taco

The other morning my wife and I were listening to traffic from the National Guard. We both misheard one of the callsigns as Pelican Taco (for obvious reasons, I won’t give the real one). This lead to a discussion of misunderstood lyrics. She told me there was a line in “18 Wheeler” by Alabama that said “Hot Nacho.” I had no idea what she was talking about, so I played the song. She thought the line, “Cotton-Eye Joe” was “Hot Nacho.” Which, well maybe, but yeah.
 
I’m not imune however. When I was a kid, way back in the 80’s, the song, Every Time You Go Away, was popular. I have been told that every time that song came on the radio, I would stand by the refrigerator and sing,

Every time you go away,
you take a piece of meat with you.

Rather than,

You take a piece of me with you.

This is how we amuse ourselves.
