    Good morning!

    So I have a very nice friend that many years ago dated my DH, but then married his BFF. As a result of this, I tells me things about her he shouldn't...like as a teenager she used to think the lyrics of AC/DC's "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" were

    "Thirty theives and the Thunder Chief!!!"

    I can totally see her during her "alternative" phase, head shaved, thinking she is all cool and rocking out to "THIR-TY THEIVES and the THUN-DER CHEIF!!!!"

    DH swore me to secrecy, knowing she would WHUP him if she found out he told....but every time I see her or talk to her I end up singing AC/DC for a day or two. Sometimes the right lyrics, sometimes the wrong ones....

    Anyone else have some good lyrics gone wrong?

    Please keep it rated-PG/appropriate for BYC.

    YES BUT MINE IS MY FAV FROM OUR DS....
    (I CAN'T REMEMBER OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD WHO SINGS IT NOW OF COURSE)
    'AHWHOOOOOO WAREWOLVES OF LONDON'
    AND HE SAYS -
    'AHWHOOOOOO WAREWOLVES ARE COMIN'

    I KNOW IT'S NOT AS DRAMATIC AS SOME BUT WHEN HE WAS 4 AND SINGING IT, IT WAS SO GREAT! [​IMG]

    You mean it's NOT Thirty thieves and the Thunder chief?????

    So much for my war dance.


    When we were little, we sang and danced Cher's Half-Breed, only we sand "Carefree". Half-breed wasn't in my vocabulary.

    If I'm singing current tunes incorrectly, I don't know about it...
    Which means I probably am! [​IMG]

    The most famous lyrical blunder comes from people singing Jimi Hendrix: "Excuse me while I kiss this guy" the lyric is: Excuse me while I kiss the sky.

    My husband sings Steely Dan's song "Are you reeling in the years?" wrong. He sings it" are you really in the east, are you really in the west?"

    Bad Moon Rising

    Instead of "there's a bad moon on the rise", I was singing "there's a bathroom on the right".

    You do not want to ask me that! Once I start singing a song, I will sing it off and on all day-which is what I am now doing.
    Are you reeling in the years, stowing away the time. Are you gathering up the tears, have you had enough of mine. [​IMG]
