Ben Harper's, "Widow of a Living Man"
Misheard Lyrics:
Mama, why does he fear he's been told?
Why does he act like he's mold?
How long will he sit seated in the tide?
Does he think that he is blind?
He is a ditto, he is a ditto
Of human kind.
Original Lyrics:
Mama, why does he treat me so cold?
Why do I feel so old?
How long has he treated me unkind?
Have I always been so blind?
I am widow, I am a widow
Of a living man.
