Misheard Lyrics:
Sodomy is such a lonely word.
Original Lyrics:
Honesty is such a lonely word.
This isn't a misheard lyric. Billy Joel was on "Inside the Actor's Studio". He told a story about how "Honesty" had originally been an instrumental, but his drummer used lyrics to keep his place. So through the mic, he could hear his drummer singing 'Sodomy', and 'Something... gonna bugger you', and realized he had to write lyrics. So 'Sodomy' became 'Honesty'.
