We were JUST talking about this at the beach the other day!! Criiizazzzy! One of the girls, Cara was saying up until 3 years, she thought the Pearl Jam song "Better Man" was something different. She said she never understood the lyrics but thought they were a euphemism for something else. The line "she dreams in red, can't find a better man"--she thought it was "she dream of bread, can't find a butter man". Sadly, this isn't a joke. She REALLY thought this.


I do this all the time. But I don't bother to get the right lyrics because it's embarrassing to know how wrong I was.


Ok, I'm old. I admit it. But the two that stand out most for me are Bachman Turner Overdrive's "Baking Carrot Biscuits" ("Taking Care of Business") and singing along with my dad in the car when I was little to CCR..."There's a bathroom on the right!" ("There's a bad moon on the rise...")


Oh, and my uncle, who went to Episcopal Academy when he was a kid thought their anthem was "Ye crystal ball, ye crystal ball" instead of "Episcopal, Episcopal..."

And don't forget the hymn about Gladly, the bear with the crossed eyes ("Gladly the cross I'd bear...")


Well...I thought "Secret Agent Man" was "Secret Asian Man," and I still sing it like that. My exboyfriend used to think that song "I love rock and roll/put another dime in the jukebox, Baby!" (lame song, btw) was "I love Barney Mo..."

Who the f is Barney Mo?

But the Baking Carrot Biscuits is the best one I've ever heard.


haha, we had a conversation about that Pussycat Doll's song this weekend. I can add about 5 extra people to your list that thought she couldn't wait to get boobies. The little girl my sister watches sings it that way too....I'll have to let her know. Too funny, I had no idea til I read your post!
