Billy Joel's, "Sometimes A Fantasy (Live)"
Misheard Lyrics:
Ah, sure it would be better
If I had a hit of bromine, be bop a lula.
Original Lyrics:
Ah, sure it would be better
If I had you here to hold me, be bop a lula.
This is the live version on Kohept (Russian 'Concert' Album). He gets the words wrong later in the same verse, so my guess is he was just stumbling over his words or not enunciating, which combined with the heavy reverb made it hard to figure out.
