Story about this misheard lyric by: Codi Preston D.

Up until recently, I thought the lead singer Jay Black sang "She belonged to THAT man Jose" and not "she belonged to BAD man Jose". I'm 43 and I have known this song for probably 30 years and I only saw my mistake when I looked up the lyrics of the song!! LOL - Codi Preston D.
