a parody of "Ballroom Blitz" by Sweet
If you have ever worked for a company that uses some version of the Toyota Business System, you should enjoy this song. If you have worked in corporate America some time in the last decade or so, you should at least get a few chuckles out of this.

Misheard Lyrics:

"Hell Raiser"
Misheard Lyrics:
She's came to life on the shell
Like a fish out of Hell
And when she's shaking like oooh
Everyone fell
It's a feat
And that's neat
And she took me COMPLETELY by surprise with her ultrasonic eyes
That were flashing like hysterical danger signs
She said, "Beware where you tread or you'll go out of your head!"
Original Lyrics:
She's like a live bomb shell
Like a flash out of hell
And when she's shaking her oooh
Everyone fell at her feet
And that's neat and she took me completely
By surprise with her ultrasonic eyes
That were flashing like hysterical danger signs
That said beware where you tread
Or you'll go out of your head
"Hell Raiser"
Misheard Lyrics:
I said now mama you don't understand
Every time I touch a hand
It's like a burning in the fires of Hell
And if I hold it too long
You never can tell what would happen to me
Wouldn't want you to see
Original Lyrics:
I said now Mama, you don't understand
Every time I touch her hand
It's like I'm burning in the fires of Hell
And if I hold her too long
You never can tell what will happen to me
Wouldn't want you to see

So for god's sake turn it down.
