Joan Osborne's, "One Of Us (Album Version)"
Misheard Lyrics:
Oh, oh one of these days when the Pope shoot a pearl,
This old world's gonna deal in drugs.
Saints serve the devil with paper plates
And the Lord's gonna come with his heavenly airplane.
Original Lyrics:
Oh, one of these days around twelve o'clock
The whole wide world will reel and rock
The sinner will tremble and cry for pain
And the Lord will come in his airplane.
Editor's note: The performer of this song spells her last name Osborne, not Osbourne. She's American, not British or Canadian or anything like that.
Joan Osborne's, "One Of Us (album version)"
Misheard Lyrics:
Oh, one of these days at about 12 o'clock,
This ole bird going to demand rock,
Saint well-keeper and DeKuyer paint,
For the lord's going to come in his heavenly airplane
Original Lyrics:
Oh, one of these days around twelve o'clock
The whole wide world will reel and rock
The sinner will tremble and cry for pain
And the Lord will come in his aeroplane.
Editor's note: How many times do I have to mention this? The phrase "What If God Was" is NOT part of the title!
