Fair To Midland's, "Dance of the Manatee"
Misheard Lyrics:
Mary grew herself some b*ll*s
Oh, yes she did
Mary grew herself some b*ll*s
I must envy
Heaven doth sleep, hold no virtue
Last call for Sharon: 'Project your mind you'.
Original Lyrics:
We Marys had ourselves a ball
Oh, yes we did
We Marys had ourselves a ball
I must admit
Hang us those limbs, hold no virtue
Those told to hold: 'Project on my cue'.
