I love this song, haha its so spiteful its great. But I was reading the annotated lyrics site and read a blurb about how Barlow wrote this lyric but Bobby never sang it:

"And while you were saying your mantra
I was humping your very best friend
And comparing myself to Sinatra
'Cause I did it my way in her end"

Ha Ha! My band plays that song and we'll swap out a regular verse and use those lines instead! I guess Bobby was being PC.

It's kinda funny. But Dead concerts were family events and that was just a liiiiitle bit over the top.

Funny indeedy... But...
I personally read the lyrics of HIAB to be:
- A man and woman in a relationship
- The woman nags/ridicules/condemns the man for how he lives his life
- The woman not really living a good life either
- The man begining to realize how messed up she is

That extra verse really changes "him" from being in a bad relationship with a nut-case, double standard nag to a down-right bragging cheater without remorse.

or, if that verse were to be last, you could interpret that the narrator had enough and broke up with the girl in a very powerful way by nailing her friend and rubbing it in her face.

A slight stretch but I could see that...

I guess I read it to mean "while you were preaching to me I was fucking your best friend".

maybe im just trying to justify because I like the Sinatra/my way line so much. It would have been really cool if Bobby broke it out just once or twice.

I always did think of the song as a "fuck you, goodbye" kind of thing, and ending with "by the way i banged your friend" seems fitting to me. As casper said starting the thread, it is a very spiteful song

I was always more interested in Jerry's leads on this one rather than the lyrics!

Please tell me you're not talking about a stupid Bobby/Donna rumor. I dont know what it would have to do with anything since Hell in a Bucket wasnt played until long after she was out of the band
