  • Twisted lyrics

    Hi All,

    I really am the worst for this. And the worst thing is, even once I know the correct words, I still sing the wrong ones out of habit (how embarrassing) :blush:

    Elton John, Bryan Adams and Paul Young are some of my worst.

    Ones that I can remember at the moment:

    Bon Jovi - Blaze of Glory

    "Shot down in a blaze of glory"/ "Shot down in a place of loving"

    Michael Jackson - Billy Jean

    "But the child is not my son"/ "The generation of my son"

    Seal - Kiss From A Rose

    "I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey"/"I compare you to a kiss from a rose from the grave"

    Eagles - Peaceful Easy Feeling

    "I've got a peaceful easy feeling"/ "I gotta east coast easy feelin"

    Sister Sledge - We Are Family

    Still don't know the right words :lol: /"We're giving love in our family jewels"

    Madonna - Papa Don't Preach

    "Papa don't preach, I've been losing sleep"/ "Papa don't preach, I'm in lucid dreams"

    Anyone got any good ones?

    Blue Cow

    Ahh yes Billy Ocean - I remember my little brother (when he was about five) singing:

    "Get out of my dreams, and into my bed"

    (BTW - I get the mash potato thing!!!)

      I'm racking my brains now trying to remember the ones I sing (and there's quite a few! :blush: :lol: ), I'll keep a little scrap of paper handy to write them all down!! :lol:

      Mashed potato? :blink:

        Mashed potato? I'm with U Holly :blink: We have clean & serene minds you see... :lol:

        I always thought Annie Lennox was singing ''save me from the blacks'' and I was very disgruntled for very many years that she got away with that until it was pointed out to me that she sings ''save me from the glass'' (with a northern accent for glass, not southern glarrrrsss as I would speak!). It's from 'Walking on Broken Glass'' (or whatever it's called)

        Also, here's a well obvious naff one - what do those birds say in the 'Ketchup Song...''boogie and the wheelie bin??'' Someone told me it's ''boogie all your wiggly bits'' :lol:

        The very worst song for misunderstandings though has to be the Israelites one - practically every sentence is misunderstood (although they all escape me for now :blush: )

          mazza, dont even give that ketchup song a second thought, if i told you the proper words it wouldnt make any difference..

          the words are a mish mash of made up mutations of various words in spanish , possibly italian and french....

          so if you think it says 'wiggly bits' (it doesnt), then you go with it!!!

          BTW I can never make out the words in U2 songs...

          I like 'More than a Woman' by the bee gees to which i always sing 'bald headed woman'... :lol:

          I decree today that life

          Is simply taking and not giving

          England is mine - it owes me a living

          But ask me why, and I'll spit in your eye

          Oh, ask me why, and I'll spit in your eye ~ Morrisey/Marr

          Politics is Showbusiness for ugly people ~ Jay Leno

          I don't like liars, I don't like cheats. I don't like bullsh***ters. I don't like schmoozers. I don't like ar*e-lickers. ~ Sir Alan Sugar

          "Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." ~ Samuel Johnson

          The secret of success is the capacity to overcome failure ~ Noel Coward

          An economist is an expert who will know tomorrow why the things he predicted yesterday didn’t happen today ~ Laurence J. Peter

          Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine ~ Lord Byron

          Better bread with water than cake with trouble ~ Russian Proverb

          There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a cup of tea ~ Bernard-Paul Heroux

          Carpe Diem

          Give Yourself to It ~ Sue Gadenne

            There's a song by Tina Turner with the lyrics sounding like: "Give me a lifetime trousers and a world of drains" :lol:

            Bonnie Tyler's: "It's a hard egg, nothing but a hard egg"

            Desmond Decker: "Ooooh, me ear's are alight"


            • #7
              Neighboured LOL :lol:

              And who can forget Don Mclean's classic line from American Pie:

              "Put my Chamois in the levy but the levy was dry"

              (I always thought he was talking about cleaning windows - until about a year ago - a-hemm :blush: )


              • #8
                I was singing along to a song yesterday, can anyone tell me what the song's called and who it's by (a band)....

                "Pulling muscles for Michelle..."



                • #9
                  Hi Holly - is this it??

                  Squeeze - Pulling Mussels (From the Shell)

                    Top marks BC :thumbs:

                    And, for my next one...

                    "Brown ski's and cinnamoned hands...."

                    I'm pretty sure it's been in the top ten most of last summer :lol:


                    • #11
                      And :lol: what about the top ten Christmas single,

                      "We're Going to Sainsburys"



                      • #12
                        Holly - I'm giving up on both of these

                        Please put me out of my misery!!


                        • #13
                          :lol: Please save me too Holly, I know it's familiar !! :blink:

                          I heard one today - the new Pink one : 'if God is a Dj, life is an a$$hole'' I thought it says, but it's 'life is a dancefloor' !!! :hihi:

                          (time for bed, methinks...)


                          • #14
                            I'm sorry I can't help with the cinnamoned hands one - I haven't a clue who it's by, it might be called Summer Dance :blink: :lol:

                            The second one is, of course, Kelly and Ozzy with "We're going through changes..."



                            • #15
                              Of Course !!! :hihi: D'oh!!
