I can't believe for over 20 years I have heard the lyrics "And babe, I want you" as "And they phoned you" which would make sense in that context.

Also, does "There's never no-one home" mean "There's never anyone home" as in he's always out or "There's always someone home" but he won't pick up the phone?

I'm with you, Ian - I always thought it was "they phoned you", too. *shrugs*

I always figured "there's never no-one home" was referring to the ansaphone... as in, "he" might be out, but the ansaphone is home and ready to take your call...

Cloth-ears! Isn't it that having tried to contact her for so long he decides to give-up and move-on so that if she phones him, he won't pick-up?

Ooh, I never thought of it like that.

Speaking of mis-heard lyrics... the one I can't get over is the spoken-word bit in I Spy that goes, " Above the place I first ever touched a girl's chest / But hold on, you've got to wait for the best". The Different Class sheet music book randomly transcribes "but hold on" as "the whole nanna", which I've always thought is brilliantly bizarre.
