Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Une Annee Sans Lumiere"
Misheard Lyrics:
Je montrai un cheval (I will show a horse.)
Original Lyrics:
Je monte un cheval (I mount a horse.)

Story about this misheard lyric by: Cat

In my French class, I was taught not to pronounce the final 'e' in words such as 'monte'. So since Win Butler pronounced it, I initially interpreted it as 'montrai.' I think he needs to improve his accent, being that he initially hails from Texas.
