Misheard Lyrics:
Put on a poncho
Prayed for mosquitos
Drank till I was thirsty again
We went searching through fists of jungles
Found Geronimo's rifle
Peril and shampoo
And Annie Germen's corset again

Put on a poncho
Played for mosquitos
Drank till I was thirsty again
We went searching through thrift store jungles
Found Geronimo's rifle
Marilyn's shampoo and
Benny Goodman's corset and pen
It took me many times playing the song over and over again to try to understand what the lyrics were, and above was what I came up with. (Editor's note: Benny Goodman is a famous jazz musician of the 20th Century; probably one of the pioneers of jazz.)
