Story about this misheard lyric by: Doug Montgomery

I heard this song on the radio about 1956. The misheard lyric I have posted may be the oldest one I can recall.

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Down By The Station"
The Dated Lyrics:
Down by the station early in the morning,
See the little pufferbellies all in a row.
Why They're Dated:
"Pufferbellies" is a colloquialism for steam locomotives. Once upon a time, perhaps active passenger train stations had numerous "pufferbellies" in a row to be seen, either early in the morning or at other times of day as well. But passenger train travel has since declined to the point that relatively few cities or towns have highly active stations where a lot of locomotives would be seen in a row. Furthermore, steam locomotives have been nearly all been replaced by diesel locomotives for regular train runs, either passenger or freight. The only places where pufferbellies may still commonly be seen include: (1) inactive ones preserved as monuments to bygone days, such as near old depots or in museums., and (2) Active ones running on historical railroads, preserved for scenic excursions and the like, rather than regular intercity transportation. And even in those cases, seeing several pufferbellies in a row would not be likely.

Songs That Are Banned:

"Letter To The Beatles"
This song began to climb it's way up the top 100 list in America, but then The Beatles' lawyers demanded a ban on the song due to copyright infringement. The song cleary steals lyrics and chords from "I Want to Hold You Hand". Kind of a shame, as I think it's a pretty good song.
