Remember the Cranberries? They’re not around anymore, but in 1993, they released their debut album Everybody Else is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?. The first single was Linger. In fact, this was the Cranberries first single ever.
In the chorus, Dolores O’Riordan sings, “Do you have to, do you have to, do you have to let it linger?” But I like to change the lyrics to, “Did you have to, did you have to, did you have to pull my finger?”
I think the band would have been a lot more successful if they’d used those words. There just aren’t enough popular emotional songs about flatulence. That’s my view, anyway.
