Songs that were transmitted with generations were wrongly sung in the past where there was no internet, smart cell phones, and laptops to check the lyrics. Let me give you a few examples of my time when I was a child. I was born in 1993, in the time with cassettes and radio and at that time we were singing the lyrics of the songs in our own way. Please don’t be a laugh when you will read some of the song lyrics that I will mention hereinafter!
Baha Men: Who let the dogs out?
Misheard lyrics: Me and my brother as I child were singing like this: Uljaka Dosa.
Tyga: Dale a tu Cuerpo alegria Macarena…
Misheard lyrics: Dame Tu Cuerpo cerida Macarena…
Actual lyric: Give me the beat boys and free my soul.
Misheard lyric: “The Uncle Cracker song — I always thought it was ‘give me the Beach Boys, and free my soul.'”
Actual lyric: You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille / With four hungry children.
Misheard lyric: “When I was a kid I heard Kenny Rogers [as saying], ‘You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille, with 400 children and a crop in the field.'”
Misheard lyric: “‘Royals’ by Lorde — ‘you can call me green bean’ instead of ‘you can call me queen bee.’ I prefer the misheard lyric, tbh.”
Actual lyric: You can call me queen Bee / And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
I don’t feel ashamed of doing this in my childhood because in this period we were just a kids, without the net, having no access to nothing and not any chance to check the song lyrics. On the other side, I feel proud of knowing how to mishear the lyrics while nowadays many children aren’t able to do that! Unfortunately!!!
Also, read about why eyes are the window to the soul and can reveal all of us!!! thank you so much for your time and attention you spent with us and hope you will keep doing that in the future!!!
