A misheard lyric.

What's the origin of the phrase ''Scuse me while I kiss this guy'?

The correct lyric from Jimi Hendrix's Purple Haze is 'scuse me while I kiss the sky'. Actually, even after knowing the authorised version of the lyric, it still sounds to me that Hendrix is singing 'kiss this guy'. It is possible that he phrased it ambiguously. He certainly played around with the lyric in later live performances, once the misheard version became well known.
