That song came on while MB and I were out having lunch today, and made us bust out laughing. Our server thought we were nuts.

That goes for me too for must of the stuff.

I don't pay much attention to lyrics usually, so here's the only funny one that I experienced myself. Instead of "We drink-a-drink-a-drink to Lily the Pink, the Pink, the Pink ..." I kept hearing "We drink-a-drink-a-drink to live in the pink, the pink, the pink ..." (still like mine better )

My favourites that have been reported elsewhere are

"It's alright, babies come in bags ..." by the Eurythmics and
"The ants are my friends ..." by Bob Dylan

And it's more accurate to sing it "Lydia Pink, the pink the pink," anyway. It's about Lydia Pinkham's Compound, a very popular patent medicine way back in the way-back.

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 always thought he said "If I'm hungry at 4:30 in the morning, think god will deliver?" but it's really "... Pink Dot will deliver".
Wtf is that?

Actually...

Now, I'm not the one who made this mistake. Someone I know did (maybe it was Case), and I thought it was funny as hell.

edit: 'Til Tuesday'? I can't remember the name to save my life and I refuse to Google it.
I originally thought the song was about someone taking a cab ride...

Hush Hush. Take me downtown, Mrs. Carey.

No, really. I figured the singer was telling a female cabbie to shut and drive.

I have a friend who intentionally mishears lyrics all the time, and sings his versions along with the songs at the top of his voice. One day, we were going through a drive-through at a fast food place (we were next in line to place our order) and a Cranberries song came on the radio. So my friend belts out:

Do you have to,
Do you have to,
Do you have to sniff my finger?


Seems the mic at the order station up ahead was open when he did this, because when we pulled up, the girl at the other end of the mic was laughing too hard to take our order.
