  •  Original lyric to Tutti Frutti: (2+ / 0-)

    Tutti Frutti
    Good booty
    If it don't fit
    Don't force it
    You can grease it
    Make it easy

    I swettagod.
    Imagine Pat Boone singing that version.

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

    •  The first phrase of Long Tall Sally, as recorded: (0+ / 0-)
      I'm gonna tell Aunt Mary
      'bout Uncle John
      He claims he hasn't measured it
      but he's havin' a lot of fun, oh baby
      Most people mis-hear that.  Or they don't want to hear it.  Or maybe it's the kind of phrase you have to be on the inside to really pick up on.  But go listen to Richard's recording.  That's the actual text.  

      Great as the Beatles' cover version is, particularly in the rhythm section playing, Paul fluffs the raunchiest vocal bits.  It's rather out of character for him, actually; he was generally punctilious about lyrics and no prude.  It leads me to believe that either he was unable to crack the lyric code and substituted the closest thing he could imagine it being — or he was able to figure it out, and made the decision to fluff the lines to evade the censors.  

      Shirley Chisholm was right. Our Republic is in deep trouble.
