Elliott Smith's, "How to Take a Fall"
Misheard Lyrics:
It's one worse cover to cover,
P**sing in the stews.
Original Lyrics:
It's one word, cover-to-cover,
It's an endless fuse.
It really sounds a lot more like "P**sing in the stews". It's definitely not "It's an endless fuse", but I can't find the correct lyric anywhere so I'll just keep believing he had a bad experience in a restaurant once.
