"Interesting Drug"

There are some bad people on the right, there are some bad, bad people on the right...
Original Lyrics:
There are some bad people on the rise, there are some bad, bad people on the rise...

Story about this misheard lyric by: Jacqui Shimmin

I had thought, for years (since I was a young girl of 16 that fell into a coma in the winter of 1986 & almost fully awoke in 1987) & the song "Girlfriend In A Coma" was released in the spring of 1987 that it was the later, "There are some bad people on the rise, there are some bad, bad people on the rise..." but I have just heard the understandable lyrics watching a video that it was the sooner, "There are some bad people on the right, there are some bad, bad people on the right..."

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get"
The Funny Lyrics:
In the bar, with my head on the bar.
Why They're Funny:
It's funny because he uses the phrase "the bar" two different ways. *In* the bar refers to a retail establishment serving alcoholic beverages; *on* the bar refers to the counter in such an establishment where such drinks are served.

It was a good lay, good lay

Why They're Funny:
Say it one more time Moz. It sounds like Morrissey actually had sex?

Dated Song Lyrics:

"America Is Not The World"
The Dated Lyrics:
In America, The land of the free, they said, And of opportunity, In a just and a truthful way.
But where the president, is never black, female or gay, and until that day,
you've got nothing to say to me, to help me believe
Why They're Dated:
Oops... we've got a black president now. Almost had a woman president even. I wonder if he'll change the lyrics to the song when he performs it now.
