Don’t you hate it when you really enjoy a song only to find out the lyrics you thought made the song unique and funny…. weren’t actually the words at all? *face palm* Yep, we’ve all been there (whether we admit it or not).
Here are five selections of lyrics I’ve been oh so wrong about.
5.) THE HARD-KNOCK LIFE (ANNIE, THE MUSICAL)
I heard: It’s a hard enough life for us.
It’s really: It’s a hard-knock life for us. (I secretly like my version better. Ssshhh don’t tell anyone.)
4.) WALKING ON A DREAM (KATE MILLER-HEIDKE)
I heard: Is it real now? Winter people become one.
It’s really: Is it real now, when two people become one? (huh, well that makes more sense)
3.) BIG GIRLS CRY (SIA)
I heard: Took my phone, I dunno, I’m busy, ordering pay TV it’s agony.
It’s really: Check my phone, nothing though, act busy, order in, pay TV, it’s agony. (Well at least I got that it involved a phone, pay TV and being in agony. Win.)
2.) FIGHT FOR YOU (MORGAN PAGE)
I heard: Our dust still unsettled, I fear the plucking of our paddles. I’m drawing circles don’t you know, protect the seed that wants to go, to the garden, garden territory.
It’s really: Our dust still unsettled, I feel the plucking of our petals. I’m drawing circles don’t you know, protect the seed that wants to grow, to the garden, pardon my territory. (I thought a line about paddles was weird but I just assumed it somehow made sense to the song. Awkward.)
1.) WE FOUND LOVE (RIHANNA)
I heard: We fell in love and I bought this place.
It’s really: We found love in a hopeless place. (Hey, she could have fallen in love and then bought a house. Right?)
