Unofficial song lyrics

Okay, so I am just as bad as anyone in singing the correct song lyrics, but this one just gets me. I love The Smithereens, especially their song "Behind the Wall of Sleep". I was happily singing along one day when I realized I had the line wrong since the '80s! Of course I think mine is much, much better, and would love to cover this just to do it my way.

Pat DiNizio sings:

"She had legs that never ended, I was halfway paralyzed."

But don't you think my version is one million times better?:

"She had legs that ever ended, I was halfway down her thighs."

Am I right or am I right?

I was happy today to find that there is a cover of this great song. It's not much of a cover, but it's a cover nonetheless. In his "The Unofficial Art Vandelay Tapes" (yes, named after the Seinfeld quote), Graham Parker not only covers "Behind the Wall of Sleep", but a Who favorite of mine, "Substitute" and Herman's Hermits' "I'm Into Something Good". That's my favorite cover on this collection, not only because I associate it with the Naked Gun movie soundtrack!
