Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"When I Need You"
Misheard Lyrics:
I hold out my head and I'm Dutch-rubbed
or
I hold out my hand and I Dutch rub
Original Lyrics:
I hold out my hand and I touch love

Story about this misheard lyric by: Chris

I was five when this song was a hit and, since I have an older brother, I unsurprisingly received my fair share of Dutch rubs (aka "noogies"), so I thought that's what Leo was singing about.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"When I Need You"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The telephone can't take the place of your smile.
Why They're Nonsensical:
These lyrics have never made any sense to me whatsoever. Just what does Leo Sayer mean when he says "The telephone can't take the place of your smile"? Obviously he's not as happy talking over the phone to his lover as he is having her by his side and seeing her smile in person.
Submitted by: Freddie Ford
"When I Need You"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
When I need you... I just close my eyes and I'm with you
Why They're Nonsensical:
Closing your eyes actually causes you to be with someone?! I don't THINK so! Is the singer supposed to be a magician or something?
Submitted by: Mr. Critic

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"When I Need You"
The Insincere Lyrics:
When I need you, I just close my eyes
And I'm with you.
Why They're Insincere:
Sorry, Leo, but you can't be with your lover just by closing your eyes. That is, unless you DREAM about your lover or unless she just appears out of nowhere, which is highly unlikely.
Submitted by: Freddie Ford
"When I Need You "
The Insincere Lyrics:
When I need love, I hold out my hands
And I touch love.
Why They're Insincere:
One cannot hold out his or her hands and touch love.
