Haha, I've been thinking about that ad recently when I was listening to the Clash version..
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

For thirty odd years I've thought the lyric in Wednesday Week by the Undertones was...

But the classroom vision she still can't see
She was the girl for me


But it's actually "With a constant vision"
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Yeah me to. I've always sung "classroom vision". I prefer our misheard lyric. Brilliant song.

I heard "Donald Where's Your Troosers" last night and it dawned on me that the line is:

Through the streets in my kilt I'll go

and not a reference to some obscure Scottish town with:

Through the streets of McKilltargo

This was my one of the my Grandfathers favourite songs so I don't know how many times I've heard it.
