I've been chatting with some friends about songs I or people I know have been singing wrong for years. Have any of you ever heard someone you know sing a song's lyrics so wrong you thought they were joking, or been the foolish culprit yourself? I'm going to list a few songs and the incorrect lyrics. I'll write the song and title, followed by the incorrect lyrics and who said them. These are some of my favorites. PLEASE SHARE YOUR STORIES ON THIS!
"In your head, in your head SOFTLY SOFTLY SOFT-LY-LY-LY"- Me
This is what I get for not knowing the titles of songs; had I known the title was ZOMBIE I would not have been saying SOFTLY for years. My aunt gave me this CD with no cover with the song titles, so it took me until JUST RECENTLY to discover the correct lyrics.
Rob Zombie- Spook Show Baby
"She's a killer! She's a thriller! MUCHO BUENA"- Me
Yes, I had been singing Spook Show Baby wrong for years; before I knew the title I had been putting random incorrect Spanish words into it when any person with common sense knows the lyrics just by reading the title. I had just been hearing it on the radio so I never knew the title...
Fugees- Killing Me Softly
"Strumin' my THANG with his finger..."- My Grandmother
My little old Grandma had been singing some rated-x lyrics for quite sometime before my mother finally called her out. Oh lordy what the hell was my grandma thinking.
Filter-Hey man, nice shot!
"Hey man, nice SHIRT!"- David Dewey (Co-worker)
My co-worker admitted to singing this song wrong and I about peed my pants when he told me.
Nelly Furtado- I'm Like a Bird
"I'm like a bird I'll like the waaaaaay."- My mother
I have no fricken clue how my own mother got this one wrong.
