|Dear Word Warrior;
I adore self-deprecating humor, and yours is divine.
I think I like your version of What A Wonderful World better.
Who wouldn't love their dogs saying goodnight?
The Misheard lyric syndrome abounds in my family as well.
My husband misheard CCR's Bad Moon Rising "Bad Moon Rising"
what he misheard.."There's a bathroom on the right".
My daughter sang the Holiday classic "Santa Claus Comes Tonight", line
"all is merry and bright", as "Old Maryann Bites", much to the chagrin of
her Grandma Maryann.
I think most of us who heard the Bee-Gees lyrics have misheard most of them.
The misheard "bald-headed woman", could actually be pretty awesome if your girl is bald.
"Bald-headed woman... bald-headed woman to me"
Artist: Bee Gees
Song: More Than A Woman
Real Lyric: More than a woman... more than a woman to me
For the Man_Cavers who risked listening to The Bee Gees...
Many misheard Staying Alive as ,"Steak and a Knife"...
"Ah!-Ah!Ah!-Ah!...Steak and a knife!", ....and some A-1.
With Mick Jagger, You're pizza will never burn...
Because he promised us in "Beast of Burden" that he'll
"never leave your pizza burnin'". Neva-neva-neva...fo' sho. That pizza is safe!
Song: Beast Of Burden
Real Lyric: I'll never be your beast of burden.
Elton John's misheard lyric's reign supreme.....
Real Lyric: Sons of bankers, sons of lawyers
The misheard: Some with cankers, some with goiters
While most of us were Addicted To Love, Some were just dicks with a glove.
Artist: Robert Palmer
Addicted To Love
The misheard: See that girl, watch her scream, kicking the dancing queen
Wow. Can you dig that scene?
We didn't start the fire,It was always burning
"Said the worst attorney"
Artist: Billy Joel
Song: We Didn't Start the Fire
Real Lyric: We didn't start the fire,
It was always burning "Since the world's been turning"
I'm almost positive that "It was always burning" is a pretty lame defense.
If brains don't whet your appetite try this...
"You "made the rice, I made the gravy", but it just may be the "tuna fish" you're looking for"
Artist: Billy Joel
Song: You May Be Right
Real Lyric: You may be right, I may be crazy, but it just may be the lunatic you're looking for.
This guy's got it covered, from gravy to tuna. Why Christie Brinkley left him is insane.
What it all boils down to is this..
Don't stop believing. Hold on to that "sweet derriere".
Song: Don't Stop Believing
Real Lyric: Don't stop believing. Hold on to that "feeling".
In closing I say this:Keep singing,Even if you don't know the words!
I was not alone in hearing Jimi Hendrix say , "'Scuse me, while I kiss this guy".
Who can forget Toto's "I Left My Brains Down in Africa"?
Note to self...Watch out for brain-eating zombie tribes in deepest Africa.
We all can commiserate with Madonna's misheard Get Into The Groove lyrics...
"I'm tired of dancing in Obama's self".
Real Lyric: I'm tired of dancing in all by myself.
I think we're all tired of dancing with Obama by now.
But Prince has the influx of illegals solved...
Prince will "extradite your kids". Way to go Prince.
Just make sure the wall you build is over six feet tall for the rest of us.
Misheard from "Kiss", "all I want is your extra time, and your....kiss."
Ah, Who can forget their "Thirty -First Time" ?..
Madonna's "Like A Virgin" was misheard by many as ..
"Like a virgin, touched for the thirty-first time".
I'm no sexpert like Madonna, but I'm pretty positive that
all it takes is once....even if you're bad at it.
Shania Twain is not sexpert either....
In "You're Still The One",
Who else misheard "Looks Like We Mated",
Rather than "Looks like we made it"?
Either way,it's the same result.
You mated, or you made "it". Kudos to you ...both.
We've all been "Blinded By The Light" at one time or another...
But Manfred Mann's Earth Band ruined it for curler-wearing gals
everywhere with the misheard....
"You look like Medusa with Hair-Rollers in the night".
According to Psy: "Gangnam Style"
"Oprah got no style"!
Maybe she should let someone else be on the cover till she finds her style.
For the men who like their women large...
Commodores: Brick House
She's mighty mighty, built like a "mastodon"...
That's mighty all right.
Real lyrics- "built like an Amazon"...still as scary.
Not a fan of Taco Bell?...Neither is Van Halen...
Van Halen's "Ain't Talkin 'Bout Love" was misheard as...
"Ain't Taco Bell Love".
After many bouts of post-Taco Bell diarrhea, I am no longer a fan as well.
Bladder problems are no longer a shameful event for Artist R.E.M. ...
"Let's pee in the corner, Let's pee in the spotlight",
Misheard from "Losing My Religion"
Real Lyric: That's me in the corner, That's me in the spotlight.
Anti-porn? Then you're no friend of Elvis...
Many misheard,"You ain't never "pornographic" and you ain't no friend of mine"
Misheard from "You ain't never caught a rabbit ",
which by the way was a nod to loose women who "caught rabbits",
Meaning they got knocked up and were known for a good time.
Ladies...watch out for the Scottish Raper...
Demi Lovato: Skyscraper
"Like a Scottish raper".
So that's why they wear kilts!
Apparently the band was on the Low-carb rampage...
Clash: Rock The Casbah
"Drop the pasta, drop the pasta"
Misheard from "Rock the Casbah"
Not a one trick pony...
My "pony" plays the mamba
Song: We Built This City
Real Lyric: "Marconi" plays the mamba
I'd pay to see that big time.
After watching A Walk In The Clouds,The Lake House, and Something's Gotta Give...
has "Keanu Reaves had got you thinkin'"?
Song: Wasted Time
Real Lyric: "The autumn leaves had got you thinkin'"
I like the misheard version better. Mmmmm.
But it's okay, I'll be fine when you're gone, I'll just cry all night long.
"Donuts" Make My Brown Blue.
Crystal Gayle: Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue
"Doughnuts make my brown eyes blue..."
I cry when my donuts are gone too.
