Yeah so I'm sure we've all heard a song and just sang what we heard. Most of the time we end up getting the lyrics wrong. Sometimes that can be pretty hysterical.
So none of y'all are gonna know any of the following songs 'cause I grew up with 80s and country.
But I was on a spree of my childhood songs today, and realized how much I butchered the lyrics.
We Built This City, Jefferson Starship. I always thought the lyrics were "Macaroni plays the mamba". I remember hearing that and even looking it up. HA NO. That kid's name was not freaking Macaroni. My little kid self read "Marconi" wrong.
Also, Red Dirt Road, Brooks 'N Dunn. I thought the line was "There's nothing orange on that red dirt road". Makes sense, yeah? orange is close to red on the color spectrum. There ain't no orange on that red road. This baby is one pure red road.
That may be true, but there's also "life at both ends on that red dirt road". My dad laughed at me when I sang orange.
Oh yeah, and I always heard the line "I found the path to heaven, it's full of sinners and believers", as "sinners and the beavers". Hey, countryside's gotta have beavers right?
And my mom pointed out that I sang that all the time when I was three. I was singing about my first beer and wrecking my first car when I was three. Oh, childhood.
Tell me your funny lyric mistake. You know you have one. Don't deny it, man.
