there we were waving Brenda Renetti goodbye

Random thought.   You know the Billy Joel song Scenes from an Italian Restaurant?   It's the one with the middle part that is generally referred to as "The Ballad of Brenda and Eddie."
The thing is for the longest time (oh ohhh ohhh for the longest time), I thought it was a song about someone named Brenda Renetti.  Admittedly, a lot of the lyrics don't make sense if it's not about two people ("We always thought they would both find a way to survive" certainly gets odd).   But then, it wouldn't be the first time a song had confusing lines.   I'm still trying to figure out what Billy Joe McAllister threw off the Tallahatchee Bridge.
