Misheard Lyrics Revisited

I was reading one of my favorite blogger's site (and it's brilliant) when Ms. Jag posted an awesome YouTube video:

Earl Jim's - Ladder Lord's Bel Aire I think is the name of the song...

Here's a cheat sheet on the lyrics:

On a porch a letter sat
Then you said i wanna leave it again
Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand
And on the sand I wanna leave it again... yeah
On a weekend I wanna wish it all away yeah...
And they called and I said that I want what I said
And then I call out again
And the reason oughta leave her calm I know
I said i dont know whether
Im the boxer or the bag
Ah yeah ehh....
Can you see them
Out on the porch
But they dont wave
I see them round the front way yeah
And I know I dont want to stay...

I don't know if songwriters have a issue when they finally hit the big time with having their song recorded only to be misunderstood by a mish mashed vocal...
