I misheard it that
way too!


The story:

I loved this song as a child in the 80's. I lived in NY and always thought it was a cautionary tale to avoid seedy Manhattan restaurants. It made perfect sense to me... (hush, eating downtown, was so scary.) I realized my error a few years later once my apartment building got cable tv and I actually saw the video--and realized the song was about domestic abuse. But even now, two decades later, I still hear that same misheard lyric whenever I hear this song on my Ipod, even though I know the correct one.
