Mono's, "Life In Mono"
Misheard Lyrics:
I'll sh*t you. I'll sh*t you.
This dream, doo-doo
Original Lyrics:
Ingenue. Ingenue.
I just don't know what to do
Ingenue is pronounced (Ohn-jen-yu). The way she was singing it sounded like (Ohl-sheh-hyu). This explains the lyric.
Mono's, "Life In Mono"
Misheard Lyrics:
The strangeness I can feel
The dream I never knew
Begins to fade from view
Traveling through the grass
Empty in cigarettes.
Original Lyrics:
The stranger sang a theme
The tree-lined avenue
Begins to fade from view
Drowning past regrets
In tea and cigarettes.
