Story about this misheard lyric by: Karen

I sang this misheard lyric for years. I thought it was a sweet way to say 'getting married'. A work colleague laughed when I mentioned I didn't understand why blisters would go white in the sun and suggested it was "wide" not white.

Take a look now at what your boy has done
He's walking around like he's number one

"American Music"
The Funny Lyrics:
Do you like american music?
(we like all kinds of music!)
but I like american music best, bay-bee!
Why They're Funny:
Just what is american music anyway? is it country, jazz, rap, blues, rock-n-roll or what? yes, all these styles and more originated in the u.S.A. but they have performers all around the planet who listen to and play in these styles. u2 is a very important rock-n-roll band and they have their own unique innovative style, . do they play "american music" or "irish music" because they are from the republic of ireland? kraftwerk spearheads the "krautrock" genre - "american" or "german" music? the femmes ain't giving a clear defintion here.
