On July 4th, a good friend of mine had a bunch of us and the SO's overfor grilling and cocktails, hanging out and enjoying the day. They have a little sun porch witha mini bar and boom box that we had the t unes going on. During the course of the afternoon, "Blow My Fuse" by Kix comes on. About halfway thru the song, my friend (who is around 26) does that "look up into the air cuz I'm thinking thing", and I can hear him say softly: "Are those my shoes?" We all heard him, and kind of ribbed him, thinking he was just making up words to songs, which we do all the time. As the song is ending, he says it again, but a little louder, starting to rock out. After the song ends, he asks us all: "Is that what he was saying there?" Seriously. Holy CRAP did we let him have it. No, dude, he's saying "BLOW MY FUSE~!" After we all settle down, our host turns to me and says: "Gentlemen, what we have here is a case of classic Lyricosis."

My question to y'all is this: what lyric/song have you heard get butchered the worst? ("Excuse me while I kiss this guy." not included.)

A friend of mine was with his mother-in-law when Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl came on the radio. She asked him:

"What is a Harlem Fat Girl?"

When I was in my playing days (yes, I was in a band and we had electricity and everything) we played CCR's "Bad Moon Rising" and we sang the lyrics as "there's a bathroom on the right." Because there was.

Personally, from Everclear:
"I don't want to be your stupid git."

From my father in law, butchering a John Denver song:
"You fill up my sad sail..." Oh, we tore into him good for that one.

Favorite classic butcherings:
"Excuse me while I puke outside"
"Dirty deeds and they're done with sheep"

pieman - thanks to my singing of the CCR song in that fashion, my in-laws can no longer listen to that song. ;)

Blinded by the Light chorus butchered to this day.


Not Lyricosis as such but when Bush Senior ran for Prez and used Springsteen's "Born in the USA." I knew no one in hs camp had ever listened to the lyrics.

Pearl Jam's "Glorified G"

"Glorified version of a pellet gun" sounded a good deal like "Four or five virgins and a pelican" before I really listened to the rest of the song.



Ken Kennedy debuted a new finisher: Jeff Hardy fans will insist on calling it the Swanton Bomb, but it looks WAY more devastating when not performed by a 180-pound fruitcake.

That song played on the radio, and a girl I work with said "Who do you think the Thunder Chief they're talking about is?" She heard it as "Dirty deeds and the Thunder Chief".

Thanks to a friend and Pearl Jam I had a serious "WTF?" moment. My friend kept asking me, "What's that butter song that Pearl Jam sings?".

Since we didn't know what he was talking about he broke into, "Can't find the butter, Ma'am".

If it comes on when we're around now he just mutters, "Shut up" under his breath.

The chorus of Stone Cold's theme always sounds like "MY PANCAKES ARE LIVING INSIDE YOU". I know I stole that from somewhere, but dammit it sounds that way to me too.

My little sister used to sing the chorus of the "Thong Song" as "Let me sing that soooooong. That song sa-song, song song".

I never bothered to correct her.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"They're plump, ripe, and priced to move. Get your fat Samoan today!" (Packman V2)


A lot of those sound pretty familiar from Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy. (The W at Amazon)

But when I was six, I always thought Eric Clapton was singing that she don't lie, she don't lie, she don't liiiiie... croquet.

I don't know if this counts. In southern California (possibly other area as well) we have a car dealership named after Cal Worthington. He had his own theme song for his commercials that sounded quite funny to just about everyone that ever heard it.

Went something like this:

"If you want to get a car PUSSY-COW, if you want to get a van PUSSY-COW. PUSSY-COW, PUSSY-COW, PUSSY-COW"


The actual lyrics:

"If you want to get a car GO SEE CAL, if you want to get a van GO SEE CAL. GO SEE CAL, GO SEE CAL, GO SEE CAL"

Took me over 10 years to realize that during AC/DC's "TNT" song, the band wasn't chanting "fight", but was chanting "oi".

There is not one person I know that has seen those commercials and DOESNT think he was really saying "pussy cow". For reals.

Even before I knew what "pussy" meant (either meaning), I always asked myself "What in the world is a 'pussy-cow'???"

Back in freshman year of college, we were hanging out in a buddy's dorm room when Sponge's "Human Wreckage" came on.

He sang the line "In a world of human wreckage" as "In a world of few borekas". To this day we still give him crap about it when we see him.

Now I dont know how many of you listen to country, or even are faintly familiar with it. Back in the last decade, there was a song by Mary Chapin-Carpenter called "Passionate Kisses".

However, being the youngin that I was, I kept mistaking it for "Passionate Christmas", until my mom asked what the fuck it was I was saying, and then proceeded to correct me, asking the question, "why would they be singing about passionate Christmas in the middle of the summer? Lesson learned.

Meh, I know everyone remembers "Molly (Sixteen Candles)" (which wasn't even subtitled until it was a single) but the name of that one was "Plowed". Gotta stick up for 'em.

Or "cross-eyed bear". I've heard that before too.
