"Oh Sheila"
Misheard Lyrics:
Like they always say, what's good for the goose is always good for the gander... Irish Sailor!
Original Lyrics:
Like they always say, what's good for the goose is always good for the gander... Oh Shiela!

Story about this misheard lyric by: Scott

I am often teased when I tell friends (mainly one certain friend) that this is what I thought it said. I'll even get an "Irish Sailor" reference sometimes if I'm having trouble with any other song's lyrics, as I often do. To my credit, I have met at least one other person who thought it said "Irish Sailor."

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Digital Display"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I never had a girl before
with much of a figure
so excuse me if you see me looking at
your digital display
Why They're Inappropriate:
He's judging girls by their figures? do they have to qualify to his standards first? there's more to women then their curves (and t & a)! also, this "digital display" biz: is she simply an image on a video screen or what? is this video porn or something else?
