Hook: Oh, jeez...

This is rather embarassing to admit, but I know I'm not the only one who has no idea what the lyrics are to Blues Traveler's hit of over a decade ago, Hook.

The fact that they're playing at the Fiesta Bowl send me packing to iTunes. Finding the well-known "Run-Around" was no problem. Finding the other song I remembered from days long past resulted in a Google search.

Ever since I first heard the song, I thought the lyrics were I wanna burn all of your titties. I always thought it was a completely bizarre lyric, but it stuck. So into Google went the query "blues traveler" +titties, which netted me a misheard lyrics site.

Turns out the correct lyric is "I wanna burn all of your cities (to the ground)."

And it's really not that difficult to distinguish that it's not titties when you're not listening to it on FM radio in a moving vehicle. My mind, she lives in the gutter.
