Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Great Balls Of Fire"
Misheard Lyrics:
You broke my wheel.
Original Lyrics:
You broke my will.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Robert Jones

When I first heard this as a child, I was not familiar with the word will as a noun (with the possible exception of the kind of will read after somebody's death, which I guess I'd have ruled out here, as the singer seemed to be alive when singing). So the nearest known noun I could hear there was wheel. I wondered what kind of wheel got broken and how. On hearing it again as a grown-up, it was easy to hear the word will instead and how that made more sense.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Come on over, baby,
We got chicken in the barn.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Entries have interpreted "inappropriate lyrics" in various ways, some more humorous than others. But here is a submission that goes along truly with the explanation on the main page for "inappropriate lyrics" -- lyrics that are out of place because they have nothing to do with the rest of the song. For what does chicken in a barn have to do with a whole lot of shaking going on? As a matter of fact, the line seemed so bizarre and out of place to me when I first heard it that I thought I must have a good misheard lyrics entry to submit, if only I could find the real lyrics. So, I searched for the real lyrics on line, only to find I had no misheard lyrics submission after all, for the song really says "chicken in the barn", Ah, maybe that would be a good idea for a new page on amiright.com -- real lyrics that sounded so absurd that one thought they must be mishearing them. Think about it! But for now, I'll submit it here under "inappropriate lyrics" as it certainly fits the description on that page.

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Memphis, Tennessee"
The Dated Lyrics:
Long distance information, give me Memphis, Tennessee
Help me find a party that tried to get in touch with me
She did not leave a number, but I know who placed the call
Because my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the wall
Why They're Dated:
First, it's hard to get a live operator these days, and even if you did, they just look up whatever information is in their computer.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Jerry's Cousin"
Not the one he married...this cousin is named Rev. Jimmy Swaggart, who too had problems with ladies. Looks like the apple doesn't fall far from this tree!
Submitted by: Paul Warren
"His free-wheeling romantic life"
This pioneer of rock-and-roll had numerous marriages in his youth, some of which were simultaneous. His most infamous affair was when he married his thirteen-year-old cousin, because it was the news of this affair that effectively ruined his career as a popular entertainer. He made a comeback only decades later, as a relic of a bygone era.
