I can never tell when it's "one more" and when it's "what more," if it changes at all!

I know where the busy go,
I know she got a rhythm on a boat;
Hallelujah (hallelujah), here she comes!

I still don't know the proper words. Not sure I want to....

Up until a few days ago, I thought the line in Iris was "She marries a boy beneath the sand," not "She buries a boy beneath the sand." I know it makes no sense, but I was picturing getting married on a beach, and somehow thought of standing on the sand beneath the sun. I'm sure Iris got married in a church, so that wouldn't make sense anyway.

I know when HMTMKMKM came out, all I heard on the last verse was

"They'll want their money back if your a live honey bee."

It made much more sense when I learned the correct lyrics. And, I don't hear it the wrong way anymore.

correct:  They'll want their money back if your alive at thirty-three.

And, I've heard Bono throw in 53 during a live performance (probably when he was 53).
