Misheard Lyrics

This weekend, when we went hiking at noon (stoooopid, remember?) we were listening to the radio on the way there and a song came on by TLC.

Remember "Waterfalls?" *sing* Don't go chasing waterfalls, Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to.....

Jake was only 2 when that song came out, but he's heard it at around age 4 or 5. We'd be in the car and he'd sing: "Go Go Jason Waterfalls!" at the top of his cute little lungs. Go Go Jason? How cute is that?

I retell the story in the car & Jake is cracking up. He's saying, "Really?" and then we all start singing "Go Go Jason Waterfalls."

On the way back, we're listening to some classic radio station (we were in the boonies). The Steve Miller Band song comes on: "Jet Airliner."

"Ohh big ol' jet airliner, don't carry me too far away..."

Only I tell David and Jake how *I* used to sing this....

"Ohhhh Big ole Jed had a Lion...."

We also heard "Margaritaville."

Jimmy's Lyrics: "I blew out my flip flop, Stepped on a pop top, Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home."

My lyrics: "I blew out my flip flop, stepped on a Pop Tart , Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home."

I love misheard lyrics.

ng, I always thought it was: "Don't go chasing waterfalls. Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to". Crap, now I'm going to have to go look it up! Please stick to always made sense to me, in the context of "chasing" waterfalls?!?!

HA! I checked 3 lyric websites, and all three had "please stick to". So you gotta edit this blog to add "listen to". hehehehe. It's not such a funny mis lyric, but hilarious given the nature of the blog(to me, at least! ;)

Kellis,

I was wondering "What the heck is she talking about?" And then I read it.

I cut and paste the lyrics off some web site. LMAO!!

I know the words, I just never bothered to proof read the cut and paste.

All fixed now!

I am guilty of this many times on many songs. Too much fun!
