Out beyond the mills and the radioactive fills We went out into the night And we got right, we got right And on our walk, I just couldn’t talk It all began to seem a crazy dream, a crazy thing Head out… I’m heading out I’ll see you there. Across the waves of steel. Head out… I’m heading out. I’ll see you there Across the rusted fields Points upon a map Thoughts that turn to scrap And things that rust away, And you still claim that you are gonna name Our new Southern Man, if you can And once in a while you find a thing that matters more You want a thing that matters more than this And I have been trying But I can’t offer anymore, no I can’t offer any more than this Head out… I’m heading out I’ll see you there. Across the waves of steel. Head out… I’m heading out. I’ll see you there Across the rusted fields

The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
The UK band The Lightning Seeds of "Pure" fame got their name from a misheard line in Prince's "Raspberry Beret," mistaking "thunder drowns out what the lightning sees" for "thunder drowns out the lightning seeds."
