Last night, we were watching Them Idiots, a performance by comedians Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and Larry the Cable Guy. Jeff Foxworthy was on-stage and he mentioned something that brought back to mind something Little Man had done the other day. Jeff Foxworthy was talking about people singing at concerts at the top of their lungs, and was joking that his mother-in-law was singing at a concert and she had completely messed up all the lyrics.
Mistaking lyrics seems to be a very common thing, and there are certain songs that it seems like everyone hears something different because they all sing it differently. It can be really funny to hear what some people come up with. I've found a few lists of these most mistaken song lyrics on Misheard Lyrics, Commonly Mistaken Lyrics, and Top 20 Misheard Lyrics. Some of them are a lot of fun and will give you a good laugh, so please check them out.
Anyway, back to what happened. As we were watching the video, listening to Jeff Foxworthy sing the lyrics his mother-in-law had been singing, I was reminded of what happened in the car last week. I was driving down the road with Angel Baby and Little Man, and Angel Baby started singing 'Moves Like Jagger'. Little Man started singing along, and I realized he was misunderstanding the words when he started singing "He's got boobs like Jagger. He's got boobs like Jagger. He's got boo-oo-oo-oo-obs like Jagger." A funny mix-up, but one I definitely corrected in a hurry!
