Story about this misheard lyric by: J Tate

Was in the car, riding with my GF and this song came on. I was singing what I thought were the right lyrics when she starts to laugh. I asked why she was laughing and she asked me to tell her what I was singing. I said, "Wish I had a girl to wash my back." She cracked up and said, "It's 'Wish I had a girl who walked like that!" - I hate that song now!
