I thought it was "or" too... But I like the idea of being fine on dying, although I don't know why one would need a doctor's advice on that.

It just sounds weird to me. Fine on dying. Fine or dying makes sense to me.

Does the CD booklet say that? @U2, U2.com, and two other lyric sites are all telling me it's "fine or dying." The lyric sheets are sometimes wrong.

Well, I just checked the lyric booklet and found it is "or." Someone else must have been wrong!

Man oh man. All these years later.......

I JUST found out that the line in "So Cruel" is "I gave you everything you ever wanted/Was it what you wanted?" instead of "It wasn't what you wanted".

I once received an email with a video similar to the original here, about English songs that make sense in Spanish!
It turns out that the line
To drag the past out
in One, sounds exactly in Spanish like
Te traigo pasta
(translation: I bring you pasta --as in the Italian dish--)
Actually, there are other lyrics in U2 that sort of make phonetic sense in Spanish.

I remember when I was little, listening to One over and over again, and I asked "Mommy, why does Bono have leopard in his head?"  ;D
I also used to think it was (when I was really young) One more in the name of King Paul instead of What more in the name of love?

At first I thought

"Not part of the crowd..."

in Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad was

"Not part of the crap..."
