In order to avoid work and/or slicing my wrists as I contemplate my meaningless existence, I decided to blog hop for a while.
I came across this entry from a blogger that I have never read before and got a kick out of what she thought the lyrics of the Seal song "Kiss from a Rose" were.
"Now that the rose isn't bruised/A light hits the glue on the grapes".
And now that your rose is is in bloom/A light hits the gloom on the grey
It got me thinking of how many songs I have totally fucked up in my lifetime as I belted out one ditty after another off key with the radio.
Often in the presence of others.
For instance, I always wondered how the Beatles knew Lucy in the Sky had bowel problems
"A girl with colitis goes by"
Why England Dan and John Ford Coley thought that
"a warm wind was blowing the stars around"
in Really Love to See you Tonight?
How about how one feels like
"A handle on a chain"
from STP Interstate Love Song?
So spill it. What lyrics did you find out you were singing completely wrong?
