I'm not sure I know of anyone who hasn't had this experience with this song. However, regardless of the dubious lyrics, it is a beautiful melody and thanks to O Rourke's thoughtful mumbling it is entirely possible to know full well what the lyrics are and still let the melody take you off into revelries of more romantic lyrics. He's a cunning bugger.
