Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Viva la Vida"
Misheard Lyrics:
I hear carousel bells ringing,
Rowan Calgary choirs singing
He more, mirror my soul, seal
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain,
I know Saint Peter will call my name
And rule this world,
But that was when I ruled the world.
Original Lyrics:
I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing,
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain,
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word,
But that was when I ruled the world.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

The Funny Lyrics:
I jumped across; I swam across for you....
Oh what a thing to do
And it was all yellow
Why They're Funny:
Haaaaaaaaa!! This is funny because he swam across some thing and he says 'it was all yellow' which implies that he peed in the water!

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"A Whisper"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
A whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper
I hear the sound of the ticking of clocks
I remember your face remember when you are lost
A whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper
Why They're Repetitive:
Definitely the worst Coldplay song, that set of lyrics is all he says, I think, I can't stand it.
Submitted by: silverbeatle
The Repetitive Lyrics:
1. The Chord layout
2. Ooooooooo ahhhhh ooooo ahhh
Why They're Repetitive:
Ok, first of all, he just keeps playing the same chords over and over again. Congratulations man, you can move your fingers in the same direction on a piano. I'm surprised he didn't get carpal tunnel syndrome. Second, if the chords weren't boring enough, he just keeps singing oooooooo ahhhh, which doesn't even make sense. If that is seriously the chorus, I'm mourning for my generation.

Submitted by: Leigh
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah they were all yellow,
I came along I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called yellow
So then I took my turn
Oh all the things I've done
And it was all yellow
Why They're Nonsensical:
How can everything be yellow...esp the things someone does and stuff like that????? this song is sweet...but the lyrics are kinda nonsensical!!!
