Misheard lyrics.
« on: March 18, 2010, 03:47:55 PM »

I don't think there's another thread on this, apologies if there is.

I just came across these lyrics to 'The Point of It All' online and had to share:

'oh yes no one can stare at the wall as good as you my baby doll
and youre racist for playing along
youre only human after all'

'and they've got excitement and life by the fistful but you've got the meaning
i guess that's the point of it all'



...I cringed. What are the worst misheard lyrics you've come across?

This will require some explanation. And possibly hint at my age. WOE IS ME I AM OLD.

Ok, so there was a song by Mousse T called 'Horny '98' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZbTpANdI54), notable for the repeated refrain "I'm horny, horny horny horny/So horny, horny horny horny tonight".

My sister (who was about 12 at the time) misheard these lyrics. And was dancing around the house going "Make money, money money money/Sell honey, honey honey honey tonight". Constantly. When I told my mum what the lyrics actually were (she thought it was something along those lines too!), she couldn't stop laughing and was all "Well, I'm not going to tell her to stop, it's too funny".

Well yeah, there have been a few, mostly neglected:

Dolls-specific: http://www.theshadowbox.net/forum/index.php?topic=9472.0
....which immediately links to the older:  http://www.theshadowbox.net/forum/index.php?topic=1554.0

Started, but fizzled:
http://www.theshadowbox.net/forum/index.php?topic=5715.0

...and this one:
http://www.theshadowbox.net/forum/index.php?topic=7120.0

Apology accepted, no harm done.....
Besides, I always thought The Point Of It All was pretty clear, so if someone screwed it up,
they deserve to be picked upon....

Speaking of apologies:
'scuze me, while I kiss this guy...   wait, what?!?

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

You hide behind walls of Cherry Coke.

Labi Siffre lyrics - Something Inside So Strong

You hide behind walls of Jericho
Your lies will come tumbling
Deny my place in time
You squander wealth that's mine
My light will shine so brightly
It will blind you
Cos there's......

Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
