There are probably a dozen websites that claim to have the lyrics to Frank's songs. Recently I looked for the lyrics to Does This Kind of Life Look Interesting to You? One site refers to "a big tie". The next site shows "a fake tie". Is there a site where the lyrics are known to be accurate?

PS: My ear says the lyric is " a fake tie"

+1 ... roman will usually correct any typos or errata except if the typo is published on an album or tour program, unless corrected by fz in this book

According to Donlope Howard says "... I told Robert Plant it ..." and then Howard says "Robert Planet?". That's a funny joke as a play on words and that's what I've always thought was said. Others disagree. I believe Donlope is the authority on FZ lyrics and spoken word transcriptions.

I've always heard that as "Turn me on both sides". When I listen to FZ's work real close it's usually for transcribing music, I don't pay as close attention to lyrics, but today, real close, the first word does sound like "Try". The "both" versus "for" is much more difficult. I'd have to come down on the side of "try". But, without Frank himself to confirm it, I don't really care.

What song is this? I know it, I've heard it, but I just can't place it. Maybe it's too early in the morning.

Pop it in the meter momma
Try me on for size
