Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds
"How embarrassing! I've just sung the wrong lyrics in a loud voice in front of all my friends. they're laughing at me. What was I really meant to sing?"
15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit
Singing 'Lucy in disguise with diamonds' in public was mortifying as the words were not quite right! What was this line from The Beatles meant to be?
Lucy in my mind with iPhones
Lucy in the sky will die soon
Loosely in my mind with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Quite understandably I got the following lyrics wrong. Rather than laughing, my friends sympathized as Australian Crawl songs are SO hard to understand! I sang "Let me tell you about my mountain home" (correct), then "With all the ladies on the phone". That was wrong, but what was that second line supposed to be?
Where all the lads are on to Joan
When all the girls are on the throne
Where all the ladies names are Joan
Where all the ladies set the tone
Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" is a classic, but much to my chagrin I sang "there's a meaning I bet" (incorrect), followed by "when I look to the west". What was that first phrase meant to be?
where's that feeling, my pet
there's a meaning that's set
there's a feeling I get
here's the vision I get
'Great, "Purple Haze" by Jimi Hendrix' I thought. 'I know that.' I started singing and stopped when I saw the strange expressions on my friends' faces after belting out "excuse me while I kiss this guy". What should I have sung?
excuse me until the train goes by
excuse me while I lift this pie
excuse me while I kiss the sky
excuse me while the man gets high
At primary (elementary) school in Australia, we used to sing "God save our biscuit tin, don't let the ants get in", which in hindsight was quite disrespectful! At that time, 'God Save the Queen' was the Australian National Anthem and the correct first line was "God save our gracious Queen". What was the correct second line?
Long live our noble Queen
Send her victorious
Long to reign over us
Happy and glorious
At a 70's retro party, a Slade album was placed on the turntable. "C'mon feel the noise" deafened us from the large speakers. Unfortunately I messed up the second line by screaming out "girls grab your toys". What line did Noddy Holder actually sing?
hide all the toys
let's all enjoy
girls grab the boys
gather all the boys
Perhaps the most famous 'mondegreen' (mistaken song words) comes from Manfred Mann's 1976 version of 'Blinded by the Light'. I sang "revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night". Was I correct?
I walked late into a party and the music was in full swing. I heard the distinctive sounds of John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Listening to words about hurricanes and nasty weather and, perhaps foreshadowing a future need, I sang out "there's a bathroom on the right". Obviously wrong but what should this line be?
It's a bad room for tonight
There's a time to watch the skies
There's a bad moon on the rise
Hurry up and eat those pies
The night has been long and I'm feeling 'Comfortably Numb' as the unmistakable sounds of Pink Floyd reach my ears. Without thinking, I start singing "There is no brain you are receiving". Hysterical laughter greets this obviously incorrect effort. What should I have sung?
It's all a game you are receiving
There is no pain, you are receding
Don't be vain, you are deceiving
What a shame you're not proceeding
I've almost decided to stop singing in public at all after my best friend finally points out that I'd been getting the same line from Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' wrong for years. I'd always thought the words were "Beelzebub is a rebel for signing me". What did my considerate friend tell me the words should be?
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
Beelzebub has a terrible case of fleas
Beelzebub has a devil on the side for free
Beelzebub has several sets of keys
