I’m guessing that none of us who were at the Salvation Army concert last night will ever here “Anything You Can Do” again without thinking “I can hump a turtle” and laughing.
Song lyrics are often mis-heard with hilarious results. Haven’t you ever been singing a song a certain way, and then later been surprised to find out what the word actually were? Here are a few very funny lyric “twists”:
“There’s a bathroom on the right” (“There’s a Bad Moon on the Rise” by Credence Clearwater Revival)
“See that girl, watch her scream, kicking the dancing queen” (“Dancing Queen” by Abba)
“I’ll never leave your pizza burnin” (“Beast of Burden” by the Rolling Stones)
“Hold me closer, Tony Danza” (“Tiny Dancer” by Elton John)
“Jose, can you see?” (“Star Spangled Banner”)
