It takes a while to register that British "ar" sound in the ears of an American...It's not just four-year-olds who have difficulties, either. Until I discovered the web site with the lyrics, I always thought it was "cakes the size of Africa" (in Harlan) and "visibly lost in the scheming and dreaming of you" (in Whaddya?), to name just a couple. 'E's not your average lyricist, our Pat. That's a good thing.
