Misheard Lyrics #1: Stir Into My Teeth

I started listening to Joanna Newsom after two friends highly recommended her, specifically The Milk-Eyed Mender. In the song "Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie," I thought I heard her sing:

Your skin is something that I stir into my teeth

Which I think sounds amazingly beautiful and interesting. Alas, I was wrong and the correct lyric is:

Your skin is something that I stir into my tea

Which is nice, but I still prefer my version.
