I've always tended to miss lyrics unless they hit me in the face, and even then not if the music catches me.
I was a huge fan of Purple's before I realised just how silly the lyrics were. I was actually embarrassed to be so into Highway Star once I realised how puerile the the lyrics were - just that the sound, vibe and playing were so compelling that I didn't notice IG bragging about having his girl stay close on every bend and "seeding" her (cretin!).
The lyrics on that track make those of Smoke on the Water look almost Shakespearean.
