Okay, this is dumb but I just find it so funny. Yesterday, Annie wanted to drink some juice out of a "big girl" cup. No top, no straw, just wide open, ready to spill at any second kind of cup. So she's giving me all kinds of instructions about it and she decides she wants ice too. She says, "I want two icebergs...no more, no mess." I couldn't help but laugh. Icebergs? How does she know the word icebergs? Where did she hear "no more, no less?" It's not hard to figure out how she turned "no less" into "no mess" since I was so concerned about spillage. Anyway, it got me thinking about all those times I was sure I was singing (loudly) the right lyrics to a song only to find out years later, much to my humiliation, that I was completely wrong. I would be horrible at that TV show Don't Forget the Lyrics. I'd think I remembered them and still sing the wrong words. Loudly.
Roam - B52's
Actual: Roam if you want to, roam around the world.
Me: Roll misty waters, all around the world.
I know, I know. My sister had an even better one.
George Michael - Faith
Actual: Well I guess it would be nice, if I could touch your body.
Holly: Well I wish I had a knife, so I could cut your body.
She really wasn't that weird, I swear. So, share your funny mixed up lyrics. Don't forget to include the actual words because chances are, I don't know them.
P.S. There's probably some spiritual application here but I haven't had enough coffee.
