Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Every Morning"
Misheard Lyrics:
Catherine Morgan
Original Lyrics:
Every morning, every morning

Story about this misheard lyric by: Scott McPhee

I hear this song quite often at my gym. Perhaps the reason for my mishearing the lyrics, comes from a noisy place like a gym, not being the best place to hear music. Where did the name Catherine Morgan come from? There is a spoken track on a DC Talk album called Mrs Morgan. In this, a Mrs Morgan introduces herself as Catherine Morgan.

Song Parody Fragments:

"When It's Over"
Better Lyrics:
All the systems I used to play
All my bleedin' video games,
DVD's and tapes of old shows,
Mom's thrown out the window
Original Lyrics:
All the things that I used to say
All the words that got in the way
All the things that I used to know
Have gone out the window
Submitted by: Jonathan S.

Put some ketchup on that baby
Put some ketchup on that baby
Original Lyrics:
I just wanna fly
Put your arms around me baby
Put your arms around me baby
Submitted by: got it from my brother
"Fly"
Better Lyrics:
25 years old, my mother got arrested so

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Fly"
The Funny Lyrics:
All around the world, statues crumble for me.
Why They're Funny:
Oh sure, everywhere this guy goes, some statue's gonna start falling apart because he's present. What was Mark McGrath on when he wrote this?
Submitted by: O.J. Chamberlain
"American Pig"
The Funny Lyrics:
Put my foot in your mouth but the hole is too big.
Why They're Funny:
Geez, that guy sure must have a big mouth.
Submitted by: Thomas Williams
There are additional Funny lyrics available.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Cash"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
I need some f--kin cash!
Why They're Repetitive:
During this song, the second verse and chorus is recited three times, the first verse four times, and 'I need some f--kin cash!' is how it ends. It's totally pointless, but this song is funny as hell.
Submitted by: Lieselette
 

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Fly"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
All around the world, statues crumble for me
Who knows how long I've loved you?
Everywhere I go, people stop and they say.
25 years old my mother god rest her soul
Why They're Nonsensical:
Funny thing in the next verse Mark sings "we'll find out I'm told; my mother she told me so." But how can he find out from his mother if she's apparently dead? In addition, Mark was actually 29 when this song was recorded.
Submitted by: Celeste
"Disasterpiece"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I never knew how good
I never knew how good it could be
(later in the song) I always knew how good it could be
Why They're Nonsensical:
Did you or did you not know? They contradict themselves here. I love the song, but I don't get the point they're trying to get across here.
Submitted by: Jim
There are additional nonsensical lyrics available.

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Streaker"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Motherf--ker, I'm Mark, with a 'K' not a 'C'
Why They're Insincere:
I find it funny, mainly because people have a lot of trouble spelling my name. I've never actually called them a motherf--ker before though...still, these lyrics never fail to amuse me...it also has nothing to do with streakers.
Submitted by: Lieselette
 

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Mean Machine"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Don't you dare mess with a mean machine.
It's thick and rich and coloured green.
Why They're Misrhymed:
Either Mark McGrath is just plain lazy in his rhyming or he's singing about a milkshake? I haven't quite figured out which senario it is?
