/ Lyrics for the hard of thinking
A slightly wooly a coffee soaked part of my brain is convinced that the lyrics contain the line "I'm a thighmaster", which would be unusually random even for them.
So what songs have you missheard or any classic moments of publicly singing the wrong lyrics?
Corned Beef by Blondie
I think "Excuse me while I kiss this guy" might become the "Godwin's Law" of this sort of thread :-)
I genuinely used to wonder why, on 'Heal the World', Michael Jackson wanted us to "make it a better place for you and for me and the anti-human race"...
"Beneath the Knees' Blondie (again).
ozzie singing paranoid was supposed to be telling people to commit suicide
"i tell you to end your life"
no "i tell you to en-joy life, i wish could but it's too late"
then there's paul mccartneys "pipes of urine" :-)
"Andy are you living on Elm Street, hey baby..."
"Come on you Cheryl Baker..."
Both REM from Automatic for the People.
Macey Grey "I Try"
The bit in the corus that is supposed to be "My mind boggles when you are not here" sounds an awful lot like "I wear goggles..."
My man thought the words were-
He's a foriegner.
There was a Diana Ross one that I was sure said I pee out the wondow (on closer llistening it was peer out the window)
And a Queen one, Look what they've done to Mike Read. (Whatever it was it was not enough)
Beelzebul has a devil for a sideboard
"She keeps a mohican shotgun
In a pretty cabinet..."
I always wondered what a mohican shotgun was and what it had to do with Marie Atoinetter until I read Good Omens where one of the characters is listening to this and wondering who Moet and Chandon are.... :o)
What about Richard Ashcroft's obsessions with barn owls in The Drugs Don't Work?
> Marie Atoinetter
I always thought that a line in 'Grease Lightning' said:
"You know that ain't no shit, we'll be getting lots of tit in Grease Lightning"
So I looked it up and found that is indeed the lyric.
