Misheard Lyrics Stories:

Misheard Lyrics:
Go teeth, Grey ghouls, drippin' in the bathroom
Blood games, Baal towns, stretch in the hotel room.
We don't care. We're drivin' Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody's like Chris style May batch, diamonds on your time grease
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a fold leash.
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love out there.
Original Lyrics:
Gold teeth, grey goose, tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashing the hotel room
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair

Story about this misheard lyric by: Leon

Song Parody Fragments:

Better Lyrics:
They call me Squiddy I've got tentacles for legs
In High School I was voted most likely to suck eggs
My life is ruined because SpongeBob lives next to me
And you know, we're not boating buddies
Original Lyrics:
We live in cities you'll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's team
Submitted by: Linus Pierce

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address
In a torn up town, no postcode envy
Why They're Misrhymed:
Close. Flesh doesn't rhyme with address, and movies doesn't rhyme with envy.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

The Lyrics:
The cups are broke
'Broke' is a past tense verb, not a past participle. So it should be 'The cups are BROKEN'.
Submitted by: MO
The Lyrics:
We will never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood
It DOESN'T run in our blood. But 'doesn't' doesn't fit the meter of the song. That's why she says 'don't'.
Submitted by: MO

Songs That Are Banned:

The song was banned in San Francisco during the 2014 World Series due to, get this, the San Francisco Giants playing against the Kansas City Royals in the game. One has to wonder if Kansas City radio stations are banned from playing Bear Hands' "Giants".
