Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Me & Bobby McGee"
Misheard Lyrics:
When she womper slurpin' time
I was holdin' Bobby's hand in mine...
Original Lyrics:
Windshield wipers slappin' time
Bobby thumbed a diesel down.

Story about this misheard lyric by: HypeAustin

I was with a friend and he asked, "What the hell is she saying?" We kept rewinding it over and over and couldn't figure it out. We thought for sure she said something about "Slurpin' time" I didn't know if that meant happy hour or something. The more we played it over and over the more we laughed to the point where we couldn't breathe. Now, at the most random moments, we'll slur it like she did and start cracking up. People look at us like we're insane.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Me And Bobby McGee"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana
I's playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues, yeah
Windshield wipers slappin' time, I's holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
Why They're Nonsensical:
Playing the harmonica takes two hands. How is she managing to hold Bobby's hand at the same time?
