Nov 25
a parody of "Lady In Red" by Chris De Burgh
I was shocked and saddened to find out that Malcolm Higgins - one of's most talented parody lyricists had passed away. As a tribute to him, I recorded some of the songs that he wrote. I hope that these songs go to #1 on Soundclick and Malcolm can look down from the heavens and smile.

Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"The Lady in Red"
Misheard Lyrics:
Lady in red.. Is dancing with me.. Ka-ching ka-ching
Original Lyrics:
Is dancing with me, cheek to cheek.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Kenny

Especially since the "cheek to cheek" (ka ching ka ching) was sung/said in a hushed tone, I thought the singer meant ka-ching---going to score with this lady in red.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Lady In Red"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
Looking for a little romance
Why They're Misrhymed:
Chris, it may have rhymed on paper but didn't you notice something queer when you sang those lines, especially since you have an English accent with it? 'Dance' and 'romance' don't sound alike! If you had an American tongue, you would've got away with it very easily!
