Story about this misheard lyric by: martinet

I usually sniff at those who submit a misheard lyric that's actually the song's title (can't they READ?) but I admit I'm guilty of this one. I heard the song on "Gilmore Girls" so I never saw the song on the album, heard it referred to, etc. Took a little bit of Googling to figure it out, since "celibate homeboy" just wasn't showing up!

There are additional Sparks misheard stories available.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Popularity"
The Funny Lyrics:
What a night we all drive into town where we'll park our cars and meet the rest of our friends At a place that's called, I forget what it's called, but it's really great and all our friends will be there
Why They're Funny:
These guys were very unpopular in high school. It's obvious how they felt about all the popular people--brainless idiots that drive around and hang out with other popular people.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Your Call Is Very Important To Us... Please Hold"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
At first she said
'Your call is very important to us'
And then she said
'Please hold, please hold'
Then she said
'Your call is very important to us'
Why They're Repetitive:
These lines make up much of the 4:11 that this song lasts for, in exactly the same tone, voice etc. It's even more annoying than the real thing!!
Submitted by: Will Garner
"I Predict"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
And this song will fade out
And this song will fade out
And this song will fade out now.
Why They're Repetitive:
The song never fades out, it ends abruptly. The Mael brothers got out of the psychic business after that.
