Decade of Rock & Roll '70-'80 album at
REO Speedwagon's, "Don't Let Him Go"
The Lyrics:
He's got plenty of cash, he's got plenty of friends
He drives women wild as he drives up in the Mercedes Benz
He's a candle with a sick at both ends (he's hot)
Kevin Cronin does this with any songs he sings; he pronounces words with a short "e" by adding a long "a'" sound to a one syllible word gives it two syllibles. In this song, Benz as "bay-ends" and ends as "a-ends". I hate it when he does that.
