Ray Stevens', "Ahab the Arab"
Misheard Lyrics:
Well, the Sultan saw that Ahab was intending to make a dent, in his harem, but he fled
Original Lyrics:
Well, the Sultan charged at Ahab, intending to make a dent, in his head, but he fled
This is only heard in the original version, not the sanitized version that appears on most Ray Stevens tapes and leaves out the part where the Sultan walked in on Ahab and Fatima.
