My brother hears:

"The valleys and the hills and a rong-a-long"

Thinking that a rong-a-long is some sort of ancient folk dance.

It must be surely. I refuse to believe it's anything else. I mean suspicious expeditions fits, but in comparison is pretty lame.
Why on earth would he sing that about his dad...
To be fair, having read the interview where Frank explains the meaning, it does kind of fit...

I can't believe how many times I sung "wrapped up in her invisible llama" without even challenging it.
If you're oh so fucking different, who cares what you have to say?

I think "invisible llama" is better than the actual lyric so I sing that instead.

Me too actually, and it still amuses me when I do it.

How sad.

'She's so wrapped up in her invisible llama' is the one that I hear most often.

I thought that the lyric on I Still Believe was "Who would've thought that after all something as simple as rock and roll would save a soul"

True. In the context of the song the proper lyrics make much more sense. I'm just going to have to accept that I've been singing this wrong for quite some time!! :?
I hear it as 'suspicious sex-peditions'. like a pun on expedition.

That's clever! :lol: The first times I heard the song I though it was "suspicious sex predictions". Does that even make sense?

I was like... just go shopping with one of your female friends and I'm sure you'll find something she likes...
