Fine Young Cannibals', "Johnny Come Home"
Misheard Lyrics:
Quiet, we're worried
Won't you come on home?
We're sorry
Won't you come on quietly into my hand?
Quietly, from anywhere.
Original Lyrics:
Johnny, we're sorry, won't you come on home?
We worry, won't you come on?
What is wrong in my life
That I must get drunk every night?
Fine Young Cannibals', "Johnny Come Home"
Misheard Lyrics:
You were born to come along
She's missing you badly, missing your song.
Original Lyrics:
Use the phone, call your mom
She's missing you badly, missing her son.
