That moment when a song you’ve listened to and enjoyed for decades all of a sudden has a big flaw, and your subconscious is just sitting there grinning at you like Eddie Haskell, tongue stuck out, “Neiner, neiner, neiner! Ruined that song for you!”
Take a look at the lyrics for Charlie Daniels’ “Uneasy Rider.” You know the song.
Verse six – “There wasn’t a soul in the place except for him and me”
Verse nine – “some guy walked in”
Verse eleven – “These 5 big dudes come strollin in / With one old drunk chick and some fella with green teeth”
Verse thirteen – “there was three of them and only one of me”
Even if we don’t count the bartender and the drunk chick, that’s SEVEN other guys, not three!
I call shennigans!
