Adventures in misheard lyrics: Pearl Jam

Pearl Jam, Vs. Expanded EditionWhile listening to the remastered Vs. on my way into work this morning I had a good chuckle with one of my favorite misheard lyrics. The first time I heard “Glorified G,” I swore Eddie sang:

Glorified version of a pelican
Feels so manly when armed

What’s his problem with birds, anyway? The song, with properly transcribed lyrics, is below:

On a related note, the remastered/expanded versions of Vs. and Vitalogy are fantastic, as is the bonus live disc recorded at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre in 1994. The packaging is great, so I’m advising you to go to Amazon and buy the 3-disc set.
