Story about this misheard lyric by: Mandy Flowers

While shopping at WalMart, I heard this song from the loudspeakers. The two mishearings above are what I thought I was hearing until toward the end of the song, when I figured out the words were likely 'with a mean streak'. When I got home, I looked up the correct lyrics, as I had by then deduced them, on the net and identified the song and artist.

There are additional misheard stories available.
