Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Opposites Attract"
Misheard Lyrics:
Cherry fiction
Hairy fiction
Original Lyrics:
It ain't fiction.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Frann

I was in first grade when this song came out. I remember my friends and I having an argument over whether the lyrics were 'cherry fiction' or 'hairy fiction'. We were divided, and I was leaning toward 'hairy' because there was a cartoon cat in the video. It didn't occur to us that neither of those words made sense in the context of the song (but hey, we were only about six).

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Opposites Attract"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Ain't it amazing how we lasted this long
You and me proving everyone wrong.
Don't ever think we'll get our differences patched.
It don't really matter cause we're perfectly matched.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This whole lyric is a very good example of poor grammar and very poor use of nouns.
It should be 'you and I proving everyone wrong' and 'it doesn't matter because we're perfectly matched.'
Submitted by: Celeste

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Straight Up"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Are you more than hot for me
Or am I a page in your history book
Why They're Misrhymed:
At first listen, it sounds like a good rhyme: 'me' and 'history', but then she says 'book'. The music is trying to mask the word 'book' so that it sounds like she didn't say it at all. If you can't understand what I'm saying, listen to that lyric and you'll figure it out...

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Cold Hearted"
The Lyrics:
He don't play by rules.
It should be "He DOESN'T play by rules," but the word "doesn't" doesn't fit, so that's why Paula says "He DON'T play by rules."
Submitted by: Isac
"Opposites Attract"
The Lyrics:
Who'd have thought we'd
lasted this long?
You and me proving
everyone wrong.
Don't ever think
we'll get our
differences patched.
It don't really matter
cause we're perfectly matche.
It's "Who would have thought we would have lasted this long? Me and you proving everyone wrong." And "I don't ever thing we'll get our differences patched. It doesn't really matter because we're perfectly matched."
