Gasoline. (Contracted from "octane", and spelled " 'tane " in some cases.

Usage note: this word can only be found written in the lyrics of CCR's "Proud Mary", and does not seem to be in general usage. Some debate exists as to whether the word "pain" was intended. If so, John Fogerty's pronciation is so bad that not only would most listeners mistake a "P" for a "T", but would go so far as to assume the existence of a new word to do so.

Tane aka 'Tane is a contraction of Poontang which refers to a woman's genitalia. This word is most famously recognized when Tom Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival used it in the lyric for "Proud Mary." The lyric makes more sense when he sings it. When Tina Turner sings it she is just repeating his original lyric.
