"Go All the Way"
Misheard Lyrics:
Please go away.
Original Lyrics:
Please, go all the way.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Brandon Cox

My wife had this song in an oldies collection, but didn't know the title. We had several discussions about the chorus, which she believed to be "Please go away", because of the way that she interpreted the song's meaning. She assumed, because of the girl's young age, that he wanted her to leave to avoid temptation. Upon hearing it several more times on a better sound system, she heard the "-th-" sound in the aforementioned phrase, and realized what was actually being said. We changed the title of the song to the appropriate version, but we left the mistaken title attached to the end in parentheses. We laugh about it to this day.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Go All the Way"
The Dirty Lyrics:
I never knew, never knew how complete love could be Till she kissed me and said “Baby, please, go all the way It feels so right being with you, here, tonight Please, go all the way Just hold ‘me close don’t ever let me go “ I couldn’t say what I wanted to say Till she whispered “I love you so, please, go all the way” It feels so right being with you, here, tonight Please go all the way Just hold me close Don’t ever let me go Before her love I was cruel and mean I had a hole in the place where my heart should have been But now I’ve changed and it feels so strange I come alive when she does all those things to me And she says, “Come on, come on, come on I need you, I love you, I need you” “Baby, please, go all the way It feels so right being with you, here, tonight Please, go all the way Just hold ‘me close don’t ever let me go “
Why They're Dirty:
No explanation needed. Should be noted the rhythm starts slow, but the song ends fast, just like....

Hidden Tracks:

"Overnight Sensation (Hit Record)"
On the LP, after the end of the song, you can hear five or six seconds of the opening guitar power chords of Raspberries' song "Go All The Way" but it is very low and almost obscured by record surface noise. This is not on their CD however.
