So I'm driving along the avenues as I often do, trying my best to hit the timed lights and minding my own business. The Clash – Should I Stay or Should I Go comes on the radio. I like this one. I turn it up.
Except that halfway through the song, I realize something rather obvious and disturbing. He doesn't actually sing the line: "Don't think your witch clothes even fit me".
What he sings is: "Don't you know which clothes even fit me?"
And just like that, my head explodes. See, I always wondered why he was considering staying with a witch in the first place. I mean, she's a witch. He should obviously go, right? Plus, the cross-dressing thing is kind of perplexing. He seems to want to wear her stuff, but they aren't in the right size. And the statement kind of comes out of nowhere. He likes her, but the relationship is difficult, he doesn't know if she wants him around, he's confused, oh and by the way, HE DOESN'T THINK HER WITCH CLOTHES EVEN FIT HIM. For the record, I've always imagined his girlfriend as a Stevie Nicks lookalike. I've also sung this particular line loudly in mixed company at least a handful of times over the past 20 years.
And now I feel a little silly.
