I used to think "I love only you" was "How I value you", mostly listening to the live acoustic version. I can't even hear it the misheard way anymore, I don't know why I ever thought it was that.

I've been uot with Nicholas Parsons!

I've only recently realised it's "hooligan guerilla". I always thought it was gorilla.

I'd say "guerrilla" makes more sense.

On Coffee & TV, for many years I didn't know whether it was "easily" or "be history" during the chorus, but listening to the post-2009 live performances, Graham says "easily", so...

I've always thought there were two voices: one saying "easily" the other saying "misery. In fact, I'm practically certain that's what's going on.

A friend of mine thought the 'Song 2' lyric was 'HE'S A NINJA!' as opposed to 'pleased to meet you'.

I'm still maintaining that it's easily and misery at the same time!

I thought in Blue Jeans it was "but I won't pull that air another day" (air as in manner of behaving/affected behavior/attitude/etc. (I'm imagining Damon being pouty/condescending/difficult with his gf) and not "but I won't pull out hair another day".

I've always heard Damon singing 'piss on, piss on, piss on it...' during Beetlebum!

He does sing that in a few live versions.
