Actually it's, "New Moon on Monday, and a firedance through the night".

D'oh! :p
I'm not sure even the guys in Duran Duran knew what the hell they meant by their own lyrics. Like, just about ever. I'm not saying that to be down on them as musicians--I have every album up to Big Thing, plus some rare 12" remix singles...and some 45s, including "View to a Kill" which I bought new in 1985...an a rare import EP that the used-record store owner didn't realized was autographed by the bass player until after he sold it to me for $7...and some side project albums like 'So Red the Rose' and 'Thunder'...and because I was raised by hippies I still own a working turntable (3, actually).

Nickleback - How you remind me

I always sang, "Despite words in my head/Scream, 'Are we having fun yet?'"

And it's really, "These five words in my head/Scream, 'Are we having fun yet?'"

Bingo Jed!!! I love me some Steve Miller Band . That's a classic, right up there with "Who ya gonna call/THOSE BASTARDS" instead of "Who ya gonna call/Ghostbusters!"

'How You Remind Me' is the only Nickelback song I can stand, which from what I've seen is a pretty common sentiment.

Anybody know what in the hell she is saying?
I've got probably half of "Edge of Seventeen" figured out, and that's the only one of her solo songs other than "Stand Back" that I actually like as much as her work in Fleetwood Mac.

Most of the time, I sing it with the SCA lyrics, though:

Oh here is a story
A little bit gory
A little bit happy, a little bit sad
About a drink called
Imperium Compound
And how the S.C.A.'s been had.


Oh we think, we think we think
The King is a fink, a fink a fink
A fincure of
Respectability
He rules the Kingdom with Imperium Compound
The results are plain to see...


Further wackiness -- trust me -- ensues.

Here is about the whole works of the SCA version. Holy schmoly -- I know a bunch of these people at least slightly, and the barony with the Welsh name is where I began in the SCA back when Adler des Berges was its Baron. I believe two of the people mentioned are now dead -- Angus (if that's the right Angus) and Gyrth Oldcastle. Trude really does have a Cheshire Cat's grin. Yang the Nauseating is known to the outside world as science-fiction writer Robert Lynn Asprin. Speaking of authors, I'm rather surprised they didn't come up with verses for authors Poul Anderson, who was Bela of Eastmarch in Society, or Jerry Pournelle. Two more guys I've met.
I ran around in the Kingdom of An Tir for like 12 years . I have a really bad reputation from those days, and I worked for it! Any chance you know anyone who still knows the words to "I Like A Moose"? I got candy and dishes thrown at me one morning cuz a friend and I were singing it while washing the previous night's dinner dishes at like 7:30 on a Sunday morning...

I just realized....

the Guns n Roses lyric in Sweet Child O' Mine is

"where as a child I'd hide"

not

"Where as a child I died"

pretty obvious really, just never thought about it too deeply....

There is probably no hope for me

I really like the song Prison Sex by Tool. I really don't care much for the lyrics, though. So this, then, is purposefully misheard lyrics:



posted the video with lyrics so you can appreciate why I want to hear them differently in my head. changed lyrics in caps:


Quote:
It took so long to remember just what happened.
I was so young and vestal then,
You know WHATEVER
But I'm breathing so I guess I'm still alive
Even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.
I've got my hands bound,
My head down, my eyes closed,
And my NOSE wide open.
Do unto others what has been done to you
I'm BREADING BUTTER,
I need to sleep a while.
My HAM and BUTTER, you look DELICIOUS

Won't you come a bit closer,
Close enough so I can smell you.
I need you to FEED this,
I can't stand to burn too long.
Released INSIDE OF ME
For one sweet POTATO ROLL
Do unto you now what has been done to PEAS.
You're STEAMING so I guess you're ALMOST FRIED
Even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.
Won't you come just a bit closer,
Close enough so I can smell you.
I need you to FEED this.
I need this to make me whole.
There's release INSIDE OF ME

For I am your witness that
Blood and flesh can be trusted.
And only this one holy medium brings me piece of PIE.
Got your HAMS bound, your BREAD down,
Your eyes closed.
You look DELICIOUS now.
Show me something
Thought I could make it end
Thought I could wash the stains away
Thought I could break the circle if I
Slipped right into your skin
So sweet was your surrender
We have become one
I have become my terror
And you my precious HAM and BUTTER.
I have found some kind of temporary sanity in this
SPIT DROOL and CRUMBS on my hands.
I've come round full circle.
My HAM and BUTTER, this will be over soon.
You look DELICIOUS
