Billy Joel's "Big Shot"

Actual lyric: And they were all impressed with your Halston dress / And the people that you knew at Elaine's / And the story of your latest success / You kept 'em so entertained

What I've been hearing for years, until just a few days ago: And the story of your latest sex / You kept 'em so entertained

I feel sure that I've heard "and all the people that you knew how to lay".

*giggle* For years my mother thought "Who Wrote The Book Of Love" was "Who Let The Moo Cows Out".

And who can forget CCR's "There's a bathroom on the right"?
