Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Animal (F*** Like a Beast)"
Misheard Lyrics:
I'm the wolf with the sheepskins clothing
I'm lying here and texting you.
Original Lyrics:
I'm the wolf with the sheepskins clothing
I lick my chops and you're tasting good

Story about this misheard lyric by: Shane B.

So I've listened to WASP since I was a very young kid in the '80s. (Mom was/is a hairmetalhead forever) I never though much about the lyrics then but as I've gotten older, and paid more attention to the lyrics, I always thought it sounded like he was talking about texting. Much like Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me", and "red iPhones", surely this is a symptom of technological progression making an impression on us, no? I feel like back then no one would have misheard this lyric.

There are additional W.A.S.P. misheard stories available.
