Fun fact: After the song began getting airplay in 1971, people complained about the lyrics "The air pollution is f'g up my eyes."
The Kinks' Ray Davies diffused the situation by saying the lyrics were: "The air pollution is fogging up my eyes."
After the song was played on the air a few hundred times, Davies "confessed" that he really WAS sayng the "F" word.
