The other day, Lisa D's little one sang, "I kicked a girl and I liked it. To take her cherry chapstick."
(If you're not familiar with the song, the actual lyrics are "I kissed a girl and I liked it. The taste of her cherry chapstick.")
That made me giggle and think of my friend K.D. who, in sixth grade, went through a phase of mangling song lyrics.
She thought Wham's "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" was "Wake me up in Nova Scotia." When Lionel Richie's 80's classic "Oh, What a Feeling" came on the radio, she sang, "Oh, what a feeling when you're dancing in New Zealand."
Then there was "Hold me closer Tony Danza." And remember The Go Go's "Our Lips Are Sealed"? She thought that was a song about a girl named "Honest Cecile."
I could go on forever. But I won't.
What song lyrics have you or someone you know gotten totally wrong?
