Misheard Lyrics:

"Workin' for a Livin'"
Misheard Lyrics:
Senna sold Rock'n'Roll any other day
Original Lyrics:
Selling souls, Rock'n'Roll, any other day
"The Heart Of Rock And Roll"
Misheard Lyrics:
They say the heart of rock and roll is forbidden
And from what I'm saying, I'll be leaving
Now the hobo made me bell and breathin'
But the heart of rock and roll's Mr. Beedton
Original Lyrics:
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll is still beating

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Stuck With You"
The Dated Lyrics:
We are bound by all the rest
Like the same phone number
Why They're Dated:
Today, many couples, even the most happily committed among them, have their own cell phones and their own individual phone numbers and may not actually have a shared landline phone.

"Back In Time"
The Dated Lyrics:
Is this the 50's or 1999
Why They're Dated:
This was written in 1985, so they referred to the past and the future, but now both references are the past.
