And She Was Lyric error

Postby TotallySurreal on January 5th, 2012, 5:52 am

Was listening a bit more closely to And She Was, and the lyric which reads on most websites as:

She was glad about it... no doubt about it
She isn't sure where she's gone

Is actually sung as:
She was glad about it... no doubt about it
She isn't sure about what she's done


It's unmistakable.

And in the live one (at the World Cafe) Byrne sings, "No time to think about what she's done") rather than what's in the lyrics. The CD states it's: She isn't sure about where she's gone.

Just thought folks might be interested in that little tidbit...I found it interesting that this lyric is incorrect on every site I've checked out.

That's probably because every lyrics website copied it from one place. All these lyrics websites copy each other and the same texts spread like a virus, with all the mistakes included.

Who's to blame?
The first person that copied the And She Was lyrics to their computer and uploaded them, probably back in 1995 or something.

That person might have even been Francey!

These are the "Little Creatures" lyrics taken from the May 1, 1998 version of talking-heads.net (courtesy of the Internet Wayback Machine):

So, unless that in 1998 Francey copied these lyrics from another lyrics website, it's his fault :blbl:

If not, I'll keep investigating.
Am I crazy? Or am I so sane that I just blew your mind?!?
