I used to always think “every girl’s crazy about a sharp dressed man” was “every girls crazy about a shot glass man” I just figured it out recently… like within the past month! haha

@allyfally:  omg. Until I was about 14 I thought that phrase literally had something to do with meat. I thought it was like “they can’t make ends meat,” meaning that they are so poor that they can’t even make ends meat for dinner (not that I even had an idea of what I thought ends meat was! Cheap meat?). When I found out it was “meet” I felt like SUCH an idiot, LOL

@allyfally:  Haha that’s awesome – reminds me of a friend that asked how to spell “myaswell” (might as well), like we ‘myaswell’ go to the movies since we have the night off…

My mom thought the lyrics to Macklemore “Can’t Hold Us” were talking about a ceiling fan.

“So we put our hands up like a ceiling fan….”

I worked at a restaurant that played Adele’s “Chasing Pavements” at least once an hour, we always thought it said “should I give up or should I just keep chasing penguins.”.  

I dated a guy who thought that the song “Raspberry Beret” was called “Raspberry Parade”.

I have so many of these! 


Michael Jackson “Thriller”

It says: Cuz this is Thriller, thriller night!”

 I heard: “Oh it’s a thin line, thin line yeah!”


Soulja Boy “Kiss Me Thru the Phone”

It says: 6-7-8 triple 9 8-2-1-2

I heard “Sexy it ain’t if the night ain’t (212).


Black Eyed Peas “This Time”

It says: Dirty bit.

I heard: Dirty b*tch.


TLC “Unpretty” 

It says: My outsides look cool, my insides are blue.

I heard: I am size McCool, I am size McBlue.


Geez… there are so many. I am USUALLY happily singing the completely wrong thing.

I thought the lyrics to Gin N’ Juice were, “so I got me some secrets, G” but it’s “I got me some Seagream’s gin”
