The Hollies are a British rock-group, which makes it strange that they'd be singing about "working for the FBI," which makes many think that it must be an American singing it. Thus due to the mistaken accents, American ears interpret the lyric as ".45's" or "moneybags," in reference to breasts; but the song is "long cool woman," not "big boobed."
