"Nadine," Chuck Berry
Misheard Lyrics:
Nadine, let me inside you
Original Lyrics:
Nadine Honey, is that you?
Story about this misheard lyric by: Sean R White: I was clicking through Facebook posts the day after he passed away, and happened upon a gig where he was playing this song with Keith Richards. I was getting ready to leave the house and getting things together when I heard this line coming out of my phone. Caused me to double back, put down my hustle and bustle and really listen closely. Even listening closely, I was sure he was really toeing the line of decency. I speculated about the story behind writing something so provocative, maybe pushed to it like "great balls of fire" from hearing about how sexual rock 'n' roll was?

Nonsensical Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

"Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Zoo-hoo, zoo-hoo, zoo-hoo,
I got to have it, baby.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is repeated a few times during the bridge part of the song (although some radio stations play it totally instrumentally). I have no idea what the hell it means; maybe she couldn't think of a proper filler and decided to use random scat syllables? They don't mean anything. And what is "it" that she's "got to have"? (She doesn't specify.)
