Dead Or Alive's, "What I Want"
Misheard Lyrics:
But what I want's got some missing teeth
What I want it's just so plain gay
What I want is a know it all
Listen, human, shut up!.

But what I want's got simplicity
What I want it wants only me
What I want don't say no at all
Listen, blue eyes, shut up!
