Story about this misheard lyric by: Peter

This is my second time submitting these misheard lyrics. First time it didn't the site didn't take the misheard version, and I also remembered that I thought Des'ree had sung something after when I thought she mentioned the Anheuser-Busch product. Again, when I first heard this song, back in 1994, I thought maybe Des'ree had been hired by Anheuser-Busch but then I couldn't figure out why all the pop radio stations were playing the song or letting her say the words after "Budweiser", which I thought she was singing which absolutely made no sense to me (although maybe a great selling point for the product amongst men -- it probably wasn't true and might turn off women). After I told someone in 2005 my confusion over the lyrics of this song they just rolled on the floor with laughter.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

The Funny Lyrics:
I'm afraid of the dark Especially when I'm in a park When there's no one else around Oh I get the shivers I don't wanna see a ghost It's the sight that I fear most I'd rather have a piece of toast Watch the evening news
Why They're Funny:
Do I really have to say anything about that? Well, it simply looks like she can't decide on a theme she talks about... And to be honest: Does anybody want to know if she's afraidof the dark??

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'm afraid of a ghost,
it's the sight that I fear most,
Rather have a piece of toast,
watch the evening news.
Why They're Nonsensical:
If 'piece of toast' is the best rhyme you can possible think of for 'afraid of a ghost', then for pity's sake, don't use 'afraid of a ghost' in the first place!
