Snails, dog treats and questionable nudity
March 31, 2008
Jimmy Buffett is coming to town soon and I got to talking with a girlfriend of mine who has much sought after tickets to the concert (It sold out in 15 minutes.). This, despite the fact that for ten years, she thought the lyrics to Margaritaville included, “Wastin’ away again in Steubenville.” Yes, I explained to her that not all of us understand the Ohio reference, least of all Jimmy Buffett who lives several hundred miles south of the Pittsburgh Tri-State area.
This led to an informal poll of my friends on misheard song lyrics. Below are the results:
Artist/Song: Ozzy Osborne / Crazy Train
Lyric: Cause I’m going off the rails on the crazy train!
According to Kim, the lyrics are: But I’m freeing lots of snails on the window pane.
Artist/Song: Def Leppard / Pour Some Sugar on Me
Lyric: Pour some sugar on me
According to Paige, the lyrics are: Four star uber dog treat
Artist/Song: Macy Gray / I Try
Lyric: My world crumbles when you are not here
According to Jane, the lyrics are: I wore my clothes when you were not here
