I always thought it was their own edit...never heard it anywhere else.  I
think I have a promo copy of the 45...I'll have to give it a listen.

WBZ always was pretty conservative with respect to language...especially in
the 70s when they were an AC station.  I recall hearing a version of Hall &
Oates' "Rich Girl" with the line "it's a bitch girl" replaced with "you're
a rich girl"...the song made no sense with that edit, but my hat is off to
whoever produced it...not a small feat in those pre-digital workstation
