misheard lyrics
« on: October 19, 2007, 02:39:13 AM »

tell me if there already is a topic on this...
but pretty much i thought
'i fought the british and i won' was 'i fuck the british and i know'
'should i choose a noble occupation' was 'should i choose an oval occupation' as in the oval office
'hairdryers aimed heavenwards' was 'hairdryers aimed turbanwards'
they all kinda fit, i think...

Oh there has been plenty for me.. but I can't think right now.

I also thought it was "oval occupation" at first.
And at the start I thought she said "I'll use the auto-tire, murder prove that I'll...."

And "writing keeps your words at bay"

if we are talking Dresden Dolls songs, I'm sure there are many for me -- but one that struck me today:

I once heard "they're a wild bunch" from Me & and the Minibar as "marijuana bunch".  Seriously.

I do believe she has sung 'life' in at least one version of this song.

i've only just got that it's "you may be flat but you're breathing"

you know when you sing along to lines that you dont even know, you just know the sounds the singer makes?

ha, i am a fool.

in the cover of "Karma Police,"
I always thought she was singing "This is what you get when you MASSSSSSTURBATE!!!"

it's really, "this is what you get when you mess with us."
