I know what you mean.  I questioned that quote too, when I read it.  I ALWAYS thought it was Roger. 

But I listened to the studio ICSFM again yesterday, and now I'm not so sure.  It doesn't really sound like either Roger or Pete.  Its sung with such a thick American accent.  I couldn't say for certain which of them it is.

Ernie - listen to the song again, and let me know what you think.

The few live versions we have though are definitely clearly Roger.  I think that's the voice I hear in my head whenever I think of that song.
