Ronnie Milsap Sang "99 and 44 One Hundreds Percent"

GDT was listening to "classic country" on cable TV and he thought he heard some math in a song by Ronnie Milsap. Thanks to Google, GDT found the lyrics to Milsap's song "Pure Love" written in 1974.

   "Pure love, baby it's pure love
    Milk and honey and Captain Krunch and you in the morning
    Pure love You're the picture of pure love
    Ninety-nine and forty-four one hundreds percent pure love
    Ninety-nine and forty-four one hundreds percent pure love
    Ninety-nine and forty-four one hundreds percent pure lov-ov-ove'

The word pure often implies 100%, but according to Milsap that might not be true when it comes to love.
