ZZ Top, "Tube Snake Boogie"
Misheard Lyrics:
Tube Steak Boogie
Boogie, boogie all night long.
Original Lyrics:
Tube Snake Boogie
Boogie, woogie all night long.
Charles Miller adds: "When this song originally debuted, the title and lyrics were, indeed, 'Tube Steak Boogie'. However, radio stations were hesitant to announce this title, or even play the song because it's a nasty title and a nasty song. Everyone down South, and especially in Texas, knows what 'tube steak' is, and that's how the song was written. In order to get the airplay on radio stations, the record producers changed the printed title and lyrics to 'tube snake,' which doesn't make any sense at all. but it wasn't as offensive as 'tube steak'. Additionally, the studio went back and distorted the word 'steak,' so it doesn't sound like 'steak' or 'snake' or anything else --- it just sounds like a glitch in the tape, if you listen closely." [Ed.'s note: My apologies, but I can't believe Mr. Miller, hence I switched the lyrics around. If anyone else can confirm his story, let me know.]
