Pinky Cubans

For years now, when we listened to the 1994 Morrissey hit single “Now My Heart Is Full”, I thought the song’s refrain referred to “Pinky Cubans”. I was saddened to recently find out that alas, the line is “Pinkie, Cubitt”, referring to characters in Graham Greene‘s novel Brighton Rock.

Apparently misheard lyrics are a cottage industry, as a website called “Kiss This Guy”, has a huge database of them.
