WTF Is Merv Talking About?
« on: November 18, 2017, 03:05:34 PM »

Many of you have heard of the topic "Mis-heard song lyrics"....I love these and felt like putting a twist on it. Most know the lyric from Jimi Hendrix "Scuse me while I kiss the sky" from Foxy Lady was commonly misheard to be "Scuse me while I kiss this guy". I would have said, "why does Jimi want to kiss a guy....and why does he need our permission?" See?

I'll start with any easy one: "Why does John feel like we need to know where the bathroom is?"

There is a song that I heard incorrectly that is so embarrassing that Im not even going to tell it.
But...one I will tell is:


Even though the song is called Crocodile Rock I didnt know he was singing "Crocodile rocking...something shocking when your feet just cant keep still." (or whatever it was)
I just thought he was singing nonsensical word fragments and didnt realize he was singing the word crocodile.
There is the perfect insight into my intellect.
Its the chorus of the song.  It recurs several times in the song.  The first two words of the chorus are the f***in title of the song.  And I dont get it.
Thats your friend Greg summed up right there.


EDIT:  Wait.  I think I missed the whole point of your post Mervap.  We are supposed to give the misheard lyric and have people guess what song...right?  Omg

What really got me started down this rabbit hole was this one:

"What are 'wood beazies' and why does Boy George like them?"
