Speaking of Gabriel I was always thought that line in Solsbury Hill was "I told them what the smile on my face meant" but karaoke says it's "I told them not to spy on my basement". Not sure what the real lyric is but I like mine better so I always sing it anyway.
Stone Temple Pilots: "Feeliiiing... like a ham and mustard shake..."
Hootie and the Blowfish: "I'm gonna love you. The bear said, the bear said I caaaaaan."
Green Day: "Sometimes I wish I wanna pillow fight me."
You can't convince me these three aren't the actual lyrics.
Pearl Jam - Better Man
Pearl Jam - Butter Man ( I prefer it this way )
"She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find the butter man
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find the butter man"
I gave her all that I had to give
I'm gonna make it hard to live
Salty tears running down to her chin
And the smears of her makeup I never wanna live
So we ran away
And I'm sorry when I say that to this very day
It was the wrong way
She took a hike it don't matter if I like it or not
'Cause she only wants the wrong way
Funny story for this one. The song was originally by Springsteen. The line was "Cut loose like a duece/Another runner in the night" Deuce as in a hot rod, a car.
Manfred Mann does a cover and he changes it to "Wrapped up like a douche/Another runner in the night".
Manfred Mann's cover of Blinded by the Light was a number one hit while Springsteen's original went nowhere, and Bruce always tells the story of how the American people voted at the record store....and they chose douche.
For years my brother sang the song thusly:
"Dirty deeds, thunder jeep!"
"Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap"
My friend thought it went:
"Dirty deeds, don't come cheap!"
