One thing I did notice - and this has caused me some little sadness - is that all these years I've got it wrong: the lyric in [b]The Thin Wall is "They shuffle with a bull-fight grace. . ." and not, as I'd fondly imagined and widely announced, "They shuffle with a bovine grace . . ." . Okay, there's still the cow connection (which is good as far as I'm concerned, I love 'em), but somehow getting the word "bovine" into a top-20 single would have been a superb achievement. Please, somebody tell me it is "bovine" after all! (Okay, maybe this should be in "Misheard Lyrics", but it's not. Ha!).[/b]
I've always heard "Bovine Grace" too - I wonder who she was? laugh laugh laugh
