Talk:I Got You Babe
|WikiProject Songs||(Rated Start-class)|
I have listened to the song a few times and looked up the lyrics on a bunch of different websites, and I believe most of these websites to be in error. The lines that read:
"They say our love won't pay the rent
Before it's earned our money's often spent
I guess that's so, we don't have a ____ But at least I'm sure of all the things we got."
I have seen inserted in that blank the words pot, lot, and plot. Based on the context and close listening, I believe the correct lyric to be plot. Anyway, I thought the fact that it is misspelled so often worth mentioning in the article.

Duet with R.E.M.
At this forum site contributor Max says: "Sonny went to radio station KHJ and asked them to play "I Got You Babe" once every hour (in exchange for granting that station exclusive rights to that song). Because the response to "I Got You Babe" was so favorable, Atco was forced to give that song the A-side designation." Is there any better source for this claim?
