Quandary Resolution 717
Annie Oakley, contemptuously, raj, mondegreen
I used to consider myself the biggest Hendrix fan in California, so I got an Annie Oakley for the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, I couldn't wait to see my idol, the Raj of Rock, peform "Purple Haze" live and went around town singing "'scuse me while I kiss this guy" for weeks; and even though I was totally mortified when a teller at the bank informed me contemptuously that this was a mondegreen and not the real lyric, it all worked out in the end since Hendrix really did sing the song my way on stage.
