Story about this misheard lyric by: David Pratter

I found out the correct lyrics when I rented the DVD of the movie 'How To Deal' starring Mandy Moore. It's an interesting video, it shows Liz's face on different album covers the whole time. The lyrics of the song are displayed as titles for the CD covers, they are parodies of other albums, similar to the album cover parodies displayed on amiright.com!

The Funny Lyrics:
Why can't I breathe whenever I think about you?
Why can't I speak whenever I talk about you?
Why They're Funny:
WELL... If you're talking about this person you must be thinking about them! And if you can't breathe then you can't speak! Either that or you must have asthma. See a doctor.

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Why can't I speak whenever I talk about you?
Why They're Nonsensical:
Well, hello, I'm sorry, but if you're talking about him already then obviously you can speak about him...it just makes no sense. The whole idea of her making pop music is confusing enough, but now, bad lyrics? Somewhat of a tragic occurrence.

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Only Son"
The Insincere Lyrics:
I'm the worst kind of son...
Why They're Insincere:

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Never Said"
The Lyrics:
"I never said nothing."

We all know two negatives can't be in the same sentence. It sound be: "I never said anything", but we all know that doesn't sound as good as the original lyrics.
