That's been a common mistake among my friends when they hear last year's hit "City Boy" from the Norwegian band Donkeyboy, where they sing "Underneath my skin there's an eagle", hearing "negro" instead of "eagle" xD
Moby... can't remember the name of the song, but as it turns out he wasn't singing "Don't nobody know my trouble with god." It's "don't nobody know my troubles BUT god." Also for years I could have SWORN that in that Sean Paul song "Like Glue" he sings, "I am a nobbley number two." Turns out he doesn't. I was disappointed.
