The Story: Don't eat the fruit in the garden, Eden,, It wasn't in God's natural plan., You were only a rib,, And look at what you did,, To Adam, the father of Man.
The Story: You smell like goat, I'll see you in hell
The Story: All the b***h had said, all been washed in black
I originally heard this song as a young child in the 60's. It was sung by Trinidadian calypso singer Lord Melody, and I thought the lyric, sung in a West Indian accent, referred to some kind of Shaman's totem, don't ask me why; as a child, many sayings of adults sounded odd to my ears, I just didn't question them.
Many years later, Madness released a cover of the song in their inimitable style, & in a flash, it all seemed so obvious - how could I possibly have erred?
My misheard lyric was by now however, so ingrained that to this day, that is the way I sing it...

Better than original?
Convinced others you were right?
Was partying involved?
