My old piano player thought it was......." if you play nice your gonna always win, Roll away the dew...." He by the way quit Halfstep, found God after a bad trip at Bonnaroo, joined the seminary, quit the seminary and now pickets abortion clinics on Saturday mornings for fun! :roll:

I think EVERYONE though Bob said "Dark Star" (instead of Dog Star) in Lost Sailor. I remember thinking back in the day, "Yeah, where is the Dark Star? When are they going to break that out again?"

TOTALLY!! Everyone did think Dark Star there..........Deadheads can be very lemming like sometimes.....

Also, Black Muddy River.The line "When it seems like the night will last forever"....... and everyone cheers.... was kind of stupid....the actual meaning in the context of the song would not be something that should elicit a cheer.

I swear When jerry sings Terrapin he always puts a little extra emphasis on the word Venus, which is just enough to make me laugh every time.

I used to sing "Did you ever waken to the sound of three cats making love ". One day my wife broke out the lyrics and showed them to me. She said "Look honey, it's 'street cats making love', not 'three cats', see". That cracked me up. I said "Yeah, I know babe, cats don't have threesomes!"

In Loser, I used to think it was "don't you push me baby, 'cause I'm all alone" (instead of "moaning low")

Amusingly, I just googled grateful dead lyrics loser and the answer that it gave on the results page without clicking a link had "all alone" so I guess I am not the only one who thought that. dead.net has it as "moaning low"...

Also from "Looks Like Rain", for years I sang "my basket would be empty if you were gone".

And from "Cassidy", I used to wonder why a draft cold would draw a coffee cup?

OP- It was a relief to hear Bobby in Dead & Co. sing it "nuthatch".

When I took ornithology A Long Time Ago... we had to memorize the Latin family names for all the local birds. Nuthatches are in the family Sittadae, so I pictured the bird sitting on a nut.

The best one was the family Paridae, which contains chickadees and titmice. Logically I put together "chicks have a pair of tits".

50 years later I still remember that. :lol:

Of course there is the infamous line in Sugar Mags-

"She don't come and I don't swallow..."
