"I thought I picked your idiot string'....
I'm sure that everybody used to love the 'Indecipherable Lyrics' round in Never Mind the Buzzcocks
. My particular favourites were when Suggs suggested that Shabba Ranks had rapped "I packed my tiddley microphone" and Tony Terrorvision's adamant belief that Busta Rhymes said "I had a freak shit"..ha,ha,ha
In fact, only recently I was under the impression that in the Feeder song Buck Rogers
the blokey sang, "get cider from a lemon", which let's face it would be some sort of weird lemonade-scrumpy....I then realised, he must be saying "get cider from Eleven" - which would make a whole heap of sense what with early pub opening times and the band probably having little to do in Devon after visiting all the charity shops but drink themselves into a stupor. But, sod me, I was then informed that he WAS actually singing "get cider from a Lemon" meaning I'd pretty much misunderstood the lemonade-scrumpy swiggers twice.
Apparently there are some websites dedicated to misheard lyrics but I can't be bothered to go looking, so if you have any to submit - do it here!
