    I was investigating the lyrics to the Full Bug because they are so amusing, but the interpetation of the lyric on most web sites seems glaringly wrong, or I can't hear! Someone check to see if I am correct

    I think its

    Let me show you, baby make the best of what you have in hand

    Just remember when you follow through, bending over isn't planned ha-ha

    Sites have:

    Lemme show you,
    Babe to make the best of what you havent had, ah yeah!
    Just remember when you follow through,when the over isnt planned ah yeah!

    I was suggesting that the lyrics found on the web were wrong, not that people copy them here. I reslistened to the song and still think ke clearly says "bending over isn't planned" and that interpretation of the lyric is supported by the dirty laugh he does afterwards. Dave lyrics usually DO make sense. but "then the over isn't planned" doesn't make sense!

    Figuring out Dave's lyrics is never easy. I still screw up the words to songs even after hearing them many times.

    This song sounds awesome live!

    The vlyrics on the Web site are guessed at in most cases for DLR as they never printed lyrics for these songs. Anothe example of an error is on "So This Is Love?" which they claim starts with:

    "check me out on the good side here"

    Which I believe to be:

    "Check me out on the curb side here"

    Which also makes more sense with the rest of the lyrical content in that song.
