Story about this misheard lyric by: Jeffrey

This song has what may be the most memorably annoying chorus of any folksong I've ever heard. It's stupid and repetitious regardless of exactly what the singer is saying.

There are additional misheard stories available.

Song Parody Fragments:

"Mary, What You Gonna Call Your Pretty Little Baby?"
Better Lyrics:
Some call him one thing,
I think I'll call him two things.
[OR maybe in next verse:]
Some call him one thing,
I think I'll call him three things. [etc.]
Original Lyrics:
Some call him one thing,
I think I'll call him Jesus.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Like my father before me, I'm a working man
Why They're Nonsensical:
The singer is a woman, not a man.

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"If I Knew"
The Insulting Lyrics:
They say you're not a brave man
Are you a man at all?
Why They're Insulting:
Great way to begin a love song, Joan, by openly questioning someone's manliness.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Like my father before me, I'm a working man...
Why They're Inappropriate:
The line about 'my wife in Tennessee' isn't the only one with a misplaced gender reference. Actually this sort of 'gender bender' is so common (especially in cover songs like this one) that it probably deserves its own page on this site.
Submitted by: Joshua Truax
"Diamonds and Rust"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
A couple of light years ago...
Why They're Inappropriate:
She is referring to the passage of time (ago), but light years are a measure of distance. (the distance light will travel in one year's time)
Submitted by: Marty Greene
There are additional inappropriate lyrics available.
