Desmond Dekker And The Aces, "Israelites"
Misheard Lyrics:
Get up in the morning, sleeping for bread, sir
Sold out to every monk and beef-head
Oh-oh, me ears are alight
Why find my kids? They buck up and a-leave me
Darling cheese head, I was yards too greasy
Oh-oh, Me ears are alight.
Original Lyrics:
Gets up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Oh-oh, me Israelites
Wife and my kids, they pack up and a-leave me
Darling, she said, 'I was yours to receive'
Oh-oh, me Israelites.
