Say what?

Tina Fey is a writer and cast member on Saturday Night Live and wrote the new release "Mean Girls". Here's an anecdote about her:
: "'When she was about 7, she drew this street scene of people walking along, holding hands with huge chunks of Camembert and Cheddar,' her brother recalls.
'At the bottom, she wrote, 'What a friend we have in cheeses!'' "
Pop songs are often misunderstood this way, and of course there's a book and website about it. Both of them are named for a line in Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze".

But you never make mistakes like this, right? Alright, try these examples from the comments on the book at Amazon - what songs supposedly contain these lyrics?:
  • the ants are my friends, they're blowin' in the wind (oh come on, it's a gimme)

  • The girl with colitis goes by
  • Just floss my teeth before you leave me, baby

  • I was four cross-eyed lesbians
