The Byrds', "Eight Miles High"
Misheard Lyrics:
Lamebrain town
Known for its sound
In places
Small faces are around
Original Lyrics:
Rain gray town
Known for its sound
In places
Small faces unbound
One thing I'm still not clear on is whether "Small faces unbound" was a reference to the now-famous British rock band.
