    Sat on a knife, I was kow-towed
    Workin for the NPI
    Sitting in a nasty bedpan
    Whiskey bottles piling high

    And she was holding my right
    And I told her don't be scared
    Cause you're gonna be spit

    The story:

    This is probably the most misheard song I have ever
    heard. Allan Clarke's Manchester accent, the
    massive slapback echo, and the mixdown make his
    lyrics almost intelligible to my ears. Knowing the
    Hollies got a bit weird in the 70s, I thought the
    Being in the last verse was an alien, turning the
    Prohibition Era narrative into Close Encounters
    spoof, and Allan was being escorted onto their
    space ship. Like I said, weird.

    Btw, one of the best guitar tracks ever.
