My friend and I have been arguing about song lyrics. We checked the Internet and have gotten no help on this.Is the lyric "take a load off Annie" or "take a load off Fanny" because I can hear both? Published song lyrics quote both.Also, is "big Mama" the same person as "Bessie"?Thanks.
Actually, you mean The Weight.According to sites I looked at, it should be Take a load off, Fanny. The article I read thinks Fanny was chosen because of the double entendre.It seems that no one has actually asked Robbie Robertson about it or he just does not comment on it.
I never read song titles. Serves me right for getting it wrong. I'm glad you recognized the one I meant.I always just figured that the words were slurred and some of the f sound dropped onto the name Annie. My friend swears not.
I went to the article and got completely lost about half way through it.I must not be hip enough.Thanks for the reference though. At least now I know I'm not the only one confused.
That is the article I read
i did too and i am still hopelessly confused
