Wrong lyrics

I have a quirk. All right, I have more than one, but one that irritates hubby to no end is me always singing the wrong lyrics to songs. I love to sing. I'll sing along whether I know the words or not and if I don't know them, I'll make some up. Sometimes (okay, more than sometimes- shut up), I 'mishear' the lyrics.

Classic example:

'Voices Carry' by Til Tuesday. I always thought the lyrics were:

Hush, hush. Keep it down town, Mr. Scary.

Or Salt N' Pepa's 'Push It' which I thought was "ah, bull sh*t". In my young mind, that was much more naughty than push it, since I did not catch the oh so subtle innuendo.

But it's really easy to remember words to every song if you've made them upyourself. Try it.

I do something similar, on the fly with my son in the car. "I wish they all could be California rolls.." "If I could save wine in a bottle..."

I'm sure yours are intentional, though.

Tomorrow I shall do nothing intentional. Unintentionally, of course.

I used to think that song said, "I believe the children are our furniture." When one of my friends told me the real words, I was so embarrassed I almost fell off my 6-Cub-Scout couch.
