Elvis Costello's, "Accidents Will Happen"
Misheard Lyrics:
Excellence will happen
Original Lyrics:
Accidents will happen
Elvis Costello's, "Accidents Will Happen"
Misheard Lyrics:
There are so many people to see
So many people you can sh*t upon
At your pleasure
Original Lyrics:
There are so many people to see
So many people you can check upon
And add to your collection
This portion of the song is heard in the movie "E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial" in the scene where Michael comes home from football practice and checks the fridge for something to eat; he starts singing this song. Ever since 1982 I thought he was saying the "misheard" lyrics I wrote above!
