Story about this misheard lyric by: Heather Patton

There are at least two different kinds of misheard lyrics. There are those you could go years thinking to be the real lyrics without seeing anything amiss about them, like the second misheard version above. Then there are those where you might think 'It really sounded like that', but you know from the start that the song coldn't possibly say that. The first misheard version above is in that category. I really thought it sounded like that the first time I ever listened closely to the song. But being sure that I misheard it, I listened closely repeatedly and finally singled in on an assurrance that the second misheard version was the real lyrics to that line. And so I thought for years until I saw the lyrics on a web site.

"You've Lost That Loving Feeling"

A love that doesn't get lost every day.

A love you don't find every day.

"You've Lost that Loving Feeling"
Better Lyrics:
You never make me fries anymore
When I ask for chips
And there's no tenderness like before
In your sirloin tips
You're trying hard not to show it
But baby I know it
You've lost that home-cooked feeling
You've lost that home-cooked feeling
Baby baby I get down on my knees for stew
If you would only make it like you used to do
Original Lyrics:
You never close your eyes anymore
When I kiss your lips
And there's no tenderness like before
In your fingertips
You're trying hard not to show it
But baby I know it
You've lost that loving feeling
You've lost that loving feeling
Baby baby I get down on my knees for you< BR> If you would only love me like you used to do

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips.
Why They're Inappropriate:
How does the singer know his girlfriend's eyes are open when they kiss unless his are as well? A bit hypocritical I'd say. Can't you just see these two clowns pretending to kiss romantically whilst staring at each other eyeball to eyeball?
