John Farrell says (regarding "Hard Man Is Good To Find"):

I personally don't think this is a 'slip of the tongue.' - Seems to me it's 
a pretty deliberate attempt at comedy. My bet is that every time you've 
heard this word switch it was in a context designed to deliberately elicit a 
laugh from the audience.

My money is on the "IT HAD TO BE SAID JOKINGLY!"

Obviously the first time the silly song title came up on the DJML it was in 
a comedic context and NOT a typo!!
