Misheard Lyrics:
With burning hair and tired eyes
Burning eyes I'm hypnotized, I'm through
Hypnotized, I'm through
And Iran, Iran's so far away
Iran, Iran all night and day
I couldn't get away.
Original Lyrics:
With auburn hair and tawny eyes
The kind of eyes that hypnotize me through
Hypnotize me through
And I ran, I ran so far away
I just ran, I ran all night and day
I couldn't get away.
This song became popular while the United States was actively involved in what is most commonly referred to as the 'Iranian Crisis'.
