You Fake Just Like A Woman

Wow. For an entire decade, I have thought the second verse of this song started "They were married; she's my friend". Thanks to Richie Havens' clearer diction, I now know it's "Queen Mary, she's my friend". As always with Dylan, my version makes more sense; I assumed he was talking about an ex-girlfriend.

That said, Richie does make it sound as if Eleanor Rigby 'picks up her ice from the church where a wedding has been'. Or possibly 'picks up her eyes'.
