A sleepy lagoon
Our two hearts in bloom and two on a toilet
A sleepy lagoon
Reflectin' our poo
And lightly lands
Our urine stream
That sparkles and glimmers
Original Lyrics:
A sleepy lagoon
A tropical moon and two on an island
A sleepy lagoon
And two hearts in tune
In some lullaby land
The fireflies gleam
Reflect in the stream
They sparkle and shimmer

Story about this misheard lyric by: Kent V

Apparently girls were delivered packaged and shelf ready in the days this song was recorded. No mention of whether an expiration date was stamped on the can. (Did they punch air holes in it too?)

Song Parody Fragments:

"The Great Pretender"
Better Lyrics:
My need is such, I pretend too much.
But I can't pretend I'm, not in Hell.
Original Lyrics:
My need is such, I pretend too much.
I'm lonely, but no one can tell.

"The Great Pretender"

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Twilight Time"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Fingers of night will soon surrender
The setting Sun.
Why They're Nonsensical:
"Fingers of night" is, of course, a metaphor. But metaphors still need to work in their own way, and this one is just confused relative to what follows. To complete the statement consistent with the metaphor, isn't the night (or "fingers" thereof) BANISHING the Sun, not surrendering it? To "surrender" the Sun would mean allowing it to stay in the sky (in such a metaphorical sense, of course), wouldn't it?
