In chatting it up with venerable OO (boo!) mod Austin (yay!), the topic swerved to my butching of lyrics.

Back in the day I thought the Run DMC song 'You Be Illin' was You be Ellen.  A friend of mine made a joke that the song went You be Ellen, me be Raj.

I also thought 'Bust a move' was 'Bust a moon.'

I know I used to butcher invisible touch by Genesis too..but I've heard it so many times I can't remember the wrong lyric I used to sing.

It's funny.  It's a pet peeve of mine now for people to sing the wrong lyrics.  I actually ceased seeing a girl after one date largely because she sang the wrong lyrics to songs...Kind of Seinfeldian pathetic, no?

I listen to the Pogues. Pretty much every lyric that I thought I knew turned out to be wrong once I actually looked at the lyrics. I defy anyone to hear "Dislanwaaaaysour, wasdaprolllanovafaddas" and translate it to "This land was always ours, was the proud land of our fathers."

"Sing with me, sing for the year
sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me, sing for the year
sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away...... "

I butchered those lyrics in more ways than a person can count.  I think I still do to be honest.

Teh lady always wondered what "emancipate yourself from anti-slavery" meant in Bob Marley's "Redemption Song," which cracks me up.

I was about 10 at the time:

So TAKE, these broken WINGS,
And learn to fly again, learn to live so free..

When we hear, the voices sing,
Then Buffalo Bill's will open up and let us in.

At some point I stopped even trying to get some lyrics right, and instead worked on making up the funniest alternate lyrics I could think of.
