Say What?

Post by korierika4 » Sun Feb 25, 2018 9:20 am

Anyone misunderstand lyrics? Post the name of the song, artist, misunderstood lyrics then the correct lyrics. I'll start...

Here's a little background, this came out when I was a young child, growing up in a house of violence and lots of beatings the lyrics just made sense. Lol

Tracy Chapman: Fast Car

Incorrect lyrics:
So remember we were driving, driving in your car
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
I had a feeling that I belonged
I had a feeling I could beat someone, beat someone, beat someone

Correct lyrics:
So remember we were driving, driving in your car
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
I had a feeling that I belonged
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone
The answer may not be at Burning Man, but shouldn't we at least check :?:

How many old burners does it take to change a light bulb? Just one to change the bulb..... and five more to reminisce how good the old bulb was....

flexibility is the key to success....... and poor planning is the key to flexibility

Credence Clearwater Revival:

What I alway thought they sang: "There's a bathroom on right."
Proper: "There's a bad moon on the rise."

Dobie Gray:

Wrong: “Oh give me The Beach Boys and free my soul
I want to get lost in your rock and roll and drift away”

Correct: “Oh give me the beat boys and free my soul...”

I still think my version works better for the whole song.

Elton John

wrong: darling lady queen

right: dominating queen

wrong: I can't like no more Augie Dogness

right: I can't light no more of your darkness

Apparently a LOT of people hear Augie Dogness, it comes right up on google search. I looked up the lyrics for Little Pink Houses, which I was sure I had wrong, but hey, I heard Stop a Clock right after all.

Some DJs made it a game-show collecting these misheard song texts

Hearing "Captain Caveman" in yellow submarine should be "Cut the cable"

These are all really funny.

My mom sings Macy Grays:

Correction: when you walk away my world crumbles
