Yeah, a friend of mine and I always say to each other, when things don't turn out quite right, "Well, you know they only make pop records out of plastic," which is twisting it a bit but we enjoy....

And, the "Vot you vant?" is a common one 'round here as well....

I feel pretty confident that I saw Pat change the words on Still & All live one time to "If I was going to die, you'd be the girl I'd want to jump from..." Brilliant lyric combo/jumble, I think, and one of my favorite of his live performance word-changes...
