Misheard Lyrics:

Take her out for a mil
Original Lyrics:
If her daddy's rich,
Take her out for a meal

Story about this misheard lyric by: Tim

It made more sense to me that if her daddy was wealthy and the singer was a penniless hippie bum, he might more logically make it with the honey, then ransom the rich guy's sweet baby girl for a "mil" (short for a million bucks). But by all means, a destitute hippie should buy dinner for a rich man's daughter who probably has a weekly allowance that surpasses his annual panhandling income. Heh heh heh, but lyrics don't have to make sense, I guess. They just need to rhyme. And "feel" does rhyme better with "meal" than "mil"
