"'scuse me while I kiss this guy" was actually sung live in concert by Jimi Hendrix. Maybe a second track was laid under the main vocal in the recording of Purple Haze, making it not so "misheard."

My own experience; Mashed Potato Time by Dee Dee Sharp: substitute "masturbator" for "mashed potato" sung loudly it makes people LOL, especially if they are high as a kite.
