a parody of "E.T." by Katy Perry
Originally uploaded May 24, 2011 (almost 3 years ago) Yeah it's morally wrong to actually treat people like crap and regard them as low and undeserving of anything, but in a satirical environment it's all good if it's not really how one thinks (not to sound overly utilitarian). Consider the narrator of the song as an actor portraying how a conservative douche would think about Mexican immigration to the U.S. but these aren't really my genuine words.

Misheard Lyrics Stories -> Latest Entries

"Jet Airliner," Steve Miller Band
Misheard Lyrics:
We're gonna chow down at Lina's
Original Lyrics:
Big old jet airliner
Story about this misheard lyric by: John Linus: My friends were laughing their heads off when they heard me say this.
"Leave This Town," Thin Lizzy
Misheard Lyrics:
I was fooling around with the sheriff's daughter
She was a real fine fox ...
He showed me his mad gnome
He showed me his shotgun
He stuck it in my face
And said, "Boy, I think you best be gone"
Original Lyrics:
I was fooling around with the sheriff's daughter
She was a real fine fox ...
He showed me his magnum
He showed me his shotgun
He stuck it in my face
And said, "Boy, I think you best be gone"
Story about this misheard lyric by: Mahnfried: On the "Renegade" album by Thin Lizzy, there were two songs with parts in which Philipp Lynott is somehow "grunting" some words which are a bit distorted acoustically and therefore hard to understand. One of them is "Leave This Town". I listened to this grunting part in that song and always understood in the middle of it "...he showed me his mad gnome" instead of "...he showed me his magnum". I somehow imagined some kind of evil dwarf like in the James Bond movie "The Man with the Golden Gun", this was my "mad gnome".

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics -> Latest Entries

"I Don't Like Mondays" by Boomtown Rats
The Lyrics:
Tell me why I don't like Mondays (3X)
I wanna sho-o-o-o-t the whole day down.
Why:
Another fact-based tragic song with an upbeat melody. Based on 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer's shooting spree in San Diego. Ironic, since Brenda herself was upbeat (as in remorseless) when she told the authorities "I don't like Mondays. This livens the day."
