What silly lyrics do you make up for songs you like?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
We had a thread about misunderstood lyrics before, but this is different. Even if I know the real lyrics to a song I like, I will often replace them with stupid words or phrases that fit in. For example,

"My Doorbell" by "The White Stripes":

Instead of:
"They don't seem to come around,
Push their finger and make a sound."


I'll sing
They don't seem to come around,
Pull my finger and I'll make a sound



I love that song, but I can't help it. What songs do you do this to? (Try to keep it clean. )

Well this wasn't me but my Economics teacher altered The Exponents classic "Why does love do this to me"

Original

I don’t know...oh...oh...oh...why does love...do this to me?
I don’t know...I don’t know

Altered

I don't know...oh...oh...oh...why we don't trade between us?
I don't know...I don't know

It's awesome and so true!

My hubby is a Queen fan and when he blasts his music I sing my own versions.....

"I want to break wind" - I want to break free

"Scaramoosh, Scaramoosh, come and dance the tango
Thunder bolts of lightening, thigh muscles are tightening
Ping!"

I know its sad...but it annoys him....and I've formed a habit now that I can never sing the proper words!

For Jimmy Buffet's "Let's all get drunk and..."

Instead of
"They say you are a snuff queen, honey I don't think that's true"

I Sing:
"They say you are a drag queen, honey I don't think that's true"

Nice entries so far. Hellbent for Cheddar is perfect though.

Matthew Good Band's "Hello Time Bomb" I sing:
do you feel love like I feel love and it's so bad
instead of
dirty enough, I got me a love and it's so bad
because that's what I thought it was at first, and now I like those lyrics better!

I do this all of the time and not much comes to mind right now...Drats. Oh oh, a while back ( a couple yrs ) my ex and I went to this car show and all of these cars were showing off their expensive sound systems. One was playing a song with the lyrics..."I have the munchies for your bass" ( I know, stupid ACTUAL lyrics ) but I thought they were saying "I've have the munchies for your Face" Lol. I got made fun of a lot, and now when I hear that ridiculous song, my new lyrics have stuck and I go around saying "I've got the munchies for your face".
It really is the dumbest song.

Stone Temple Pilots:
Actual:
"Oh yes I feel there's a dawn it fades to grey..."
My ex husband used to sing:
"Oh yes I feel there's a donut feast for me..."

And for a long time we didn't know the words, for Spacehog:
Actual:
"We love the all, the all of you..."
We'd sing:
"Oblee-oblee-obleeyooooo..."

One more for me:

Blues Travelers Run-A Around:
But I know no matter what the waitress brings
I shall drink in and always be full


I sing:
But I know not matter what the waitress brings
I shall drink it and always be drunk

I changed two songs when I was little:

One was Fast Car by Tracy Chapman:

Real song says "I want to be someone, be someone"
Me and my sister would say "I want to pee on someone, pee on someone"

The other was Is this Love by Bob Marley:

Real song says "I throw my cards on your table"
we would say "I drove my car across your table"

And then we would laugh for hours...especially the peeing one, because we were just little kids

When "Sugar we're going down" first came out I had no idea what to make of the lyrics... it just sounded like random sounds tied together and that's how we sang it
