Misheard Lyrics Stories:

Misheard Lyrics:
But the Kazachouk, he danced really wunderbar.
Original Lyrics:
But the Kaiser chuckled hey that's really wunderbar.

Story about this misheard lyric by: John Marshall

The reason people seem to mishear this is because the backup singers kind of tail off singing kaiser chuckled The kaiser chuckled wunderbar makes sense because Kaiser Wilhelm ii would have chuckled at this man carrying on around the Tsar's rule and wunderbar is German for wonderful so it is sort of a flippant remark on Russian politics.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Brown Girl In The Ring"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
She looks like a sugar in a plum
Why They're Nonsensical:
How much of the sweet stuff is quantified as 'a' sugar? One granule, perhaps? You can't see the (or 'a') sugar in a plum anyway: the sugar is in solution and is an intrinsic part of the plum's flesh.
