Story about this misheard lyric by: Michael Goldberg

What can I say? I was 12 when I first heard the song. I'm sure if someone told me the real lyrics, I would have been sure they had heard it wrong!

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"All The Young Dudes"
The Funny Lyrics:
All the young dudes
carry the news
Why They're Funny:
When I first heard this one, at 12-13 years, I actually thought the lyrics wanted to say 'the high school boys got an extra job; they deliver the morning papers (right, I'm not American). It was a few years before someone pointed out what it really says about the gay/glitterkid scene at the time. So I misunderstood the meaning of these lines.
