Today in 1966, [lastfm]Creedence Clearwater Revival[/lastfm] release their hit “Bad Moon Rising.” The lyrics “there’s a bad moon on the rise” are commonly mistaken for “There’s a bathroom on the right” so much so that [lastfm]John Fogerty[/lastfm] himself would occasionally sing the latter tounge-in-cheek (not that anyone could tell the difference when he did.)

I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin’.
I see bad times today.
Don’t go around tonight,
Well, it’s bound to take your life,
There’s a bad moon on the rise.
I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
