So, Hannah and I were driving home from the Ortho, listening to The Fray when we heard the song "Hundred."

We had a little arguement about what the words say. I'll write out what I thought, and what Hannah thought, and you can tell me which one you think is right:

Somewhere between Ocho and a Hundred

Somewhere between Unsure and a Hundred

I think Ocho is kind of clever, as in: How old are you? Oh, somewhere between Ocho and a Hundred!

But I couldn't pursuade Hannah, so we looked it up... What do you think? Me or Hannah? You can clickity click here to see which one of us was right.

Have you ever misheard a song Lyric? I do it all the time.

Nathan and I thought (well, maybe not Nathan, maybe he was just being nice to me. I'll have to ask him....) Simon and Garfunkel, in The Boxer, were talking about the WARS on 7th avenue. Nope!

I like yours better :o)

There was a song in the 80's where they sang 'room to groove',
but I always sing 'room to groom.'

Huh. Guess Hannah was right! Figures doesn't it....we think we're right because we're the parent and think we are better listeners. Wrongo!

What a cool mom you are!

I like Ocho too. Did you ever watch "Dodge Ball?" Silly movie, but the sports station was called "The Ocho", which gave me the giggles for some reason.

Simon and Garfunkle sure were naughty, singing about WARS (wink wink).

p.s. Did Syd get the results on her election? How did she do?

Ahhhh, brings me back to when my friend Jason and I were listening to good ol' Barry Manilow's song "Daybreak."

Call me crazy but I thought Barry was singing about "Date Rape." I officially ruined the song forever for my friend.

I'm forever embarrassed by the memory of singing along to a song on the radio, in the car of the boy I had a crush on. And singing, "And farmer...", instead of "Transformer." Oh how he laughed! And oh how I cringed!

I never get the correct lyrics to songs, but I sing along anyway.

ouch Kim, I hate when I do dumb stuff like that!

Amber--how did you even know what that term meant?? You must have been what? 5? LOL
Ask Millie what song I ruined forever for her!! :)

I'm with Orchard Girl, let's just happily sing and not care about the consequences.

"Take my Frodo off the wall..." --Look What You've Done by Jet. This is just one out of the hundreds of examples of my amazing butchering lyrics ability.

PS: Per EW request. No please don't ask :D

My dad told me the words to a song by the Bee Gees was "Bald headed woman... Bald headed woman to meeeee.." when they are really "More than a woman. More than a woman to meeeee." I believed him for, oh like 20 years.

Suzanne said...

I do this all the time! In the 80's song "Voices Carry" I thought she was singing "This is scary!" LOL! :D

That's funny.

The Wars are over on 6th.
