Misheard Song Lyrics

When I was younger, my Dad used to take my big brother and I away to Butlins for 2 weeks during the summer holidays. We used to love going away to the holiday site, I have many happy memories of our annual get away. I remember making friends at the kids clubs, spending my daily allowance in the arcade on Super Mario, visiting the on site fairground and riding on the rides all day long, playing pool and table tennis with my Dad during the day and of an evening watching the entertainment in the main club house. One thing that I remember the most about one of those holidays was listening to a singer on stage, he was singing ‘I can see clearly now’ by Johnny Nash.

I remember singing along to the words and thinking how it was all about a relationship break up. It wasn’t until a few years later that I realised that I had misheard the lyrics and was singing the wrong words

I sang ‘I can see Deirdre now Lorraine has gone’ instead of ‘I can see clearly now the rain has gone’ and ‘I think I can make it now, Lorraine has gone’ instead of ‘I think I can make it now, the pain has gone’

Misheard lyrics happen when you misunderstand the lyrics in the song unintentionally.

My son used to be adamant that Adele was singing about padelling

‘Paddle from the other side. I must have called a thousand times, to tell you ooh sorry for everything that I’ve done.’ Instead of

‘Hello from the other side. I must have called a thousand times, to tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done’

‘Paddle from the outside. At least I can say that I’ve tried. To tell you I’m sorry for harbinant’ (I have no idea what that word is) Instead of

Hello from the outside. At least I can say that I’ve tried. To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart’

Another song that he sings the wrong lyrics to is 7 Years. He is hilarious as he believes he is singing the correct lyrics and puts his heart and soul into singing the song. Now, he doesn’t know the whole song but the verse that he sings a lot is

‘Once I was 7 years old, my mumma told me got to the shop and buy macaroni’

I’m sure when he was 7  he was meant to make some friends or he will be lonely. He even sings it with an american twang

Oh and the latest one is the Justin Timberlake song ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’

‘Cause I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet
I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops, ooh
I can’t take my eyes off of the buffet, moving up on the sofa

Instead of

‘Cause I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet
I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops, ooh
I can’t take my eyes up off it, moving so phenomenally

There was a time when the eldest used to sing twinkle twinkle little star and he couldn’t pronounce his s and the blend tw. So he sang ‘Dinkle dinkle liddle dar, ow I wonda what you are’ So cute! I must add that now he is 14 he can pronounce and sing it properly 🙂

 

I guess we’ve all got lyrics that we have misheard, what is yours?

    MP3 Shuffle

    I was tagged by the lovely mummy blogger mummyconstant to join in on the musical meme ‘MP3 Shuffle’.

    The rules are simple:

    Put your MP3 player on Shuffle (or in my case my I Phone)

    Take note of the first five tunes that pop up

    Tag some more lovely bloggers to do the same

    Now, whoever knows well, will know that my boys absolutely adore singing and have always got my phone listening to their tunes that are on it.
    So obviously my phone is jam packed with a weird selection of pop songs. I also have Paul’s music on my ipod as we are too lazy to set up two different I Tunes accounts and whenever either if us sync our phones up to the computer we get each others music/videos and apps.
    So I apologise prior to actually putting it on shuffle for what is about to be written
    In the words of Party Rock Anthem-LMFAO “Everyday I’m Shuffling” I begin

    1. Jack Johnson – Cookie Jar
    Aha! this is one of my songs. I love his music although this isn’t one of my favourites.

    2. Take That – Could it be magic
    Oh no! As a huge Take That fan when I was a young teenager my OH Paul uploaded all of their songs to my IPod as a gift to me.

    3. Bruno Mars – Count on Me
    This artist is a favourite of Jak’s, my eldest son. I am not familiar with this particular song but I do like ‘Grenade’ and ‘Just the way you are’, especially when my boys sing them.

    4. Adele – Crazy for you
    We ALL love Adele and love singing along to her tunes in the car. A favourite on our karaoke machine too. She has a lovely unusual voice.

    5. James Blunt – Cry
    Not only gorgeous and rich he has a lovely voice. I could listen to him all day!

    So there you have it! My first 5 tunes to make Its appearance on shuffle on my iPod. Not bad if I say so my self and all quite current artists, how weird is that!
    I’m pleased on the outcome as it could have been Glee or High School Musical, and NO they are not mine!

    So now I need to tag some other lovely bloggers to do the same in the hope that they haven’t already been tagged!
