Quotes:

And when love grows
It grows like a flower or grows like a tumor
Love shows that God has a sense of humour.
Submitted by: andy
I've read the Bible and those books at school
but they don't make much sense of this
The finest minds are calling me a fool
But you destroy them with your kiss
Just one kiss

Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Steppin' Out"
Misheard Lyrics:
Duvet, steppin' out
Original Lyrics:
You babe, steppin' out.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Garry Davenport

I have always sung "duvet" instead of "you babe" ever since I first heard the song in 1983 when I was 12, because I honestly thought that was the lyric! I have just heard the song again on the radio and actually thought to myself: "it can't be 'duvet', can it?", so I looked up the lyrics and realised it should be "you babe"! For over 30 yrears I thought it was "duvet", but never really questioned it before now, either consciously or subconsciously! It'll take some getting used to!
