words to songs.
Growing up half deaf I always had a hard time understanding the words to songs. Like the Beach Boys sang that song, Good Vibrator. I think the words went something like, She's using a good vibrator. I didn't know she was a masturbator.
I heard another song and I think the words went like this. I'm going have a hard on tonight, a hard on tonight, I know. Rita Coolidge sang that song, She gives me Beaver. And the Monkees sang, And then she sat on my face, so I ate her beaver. I heard a newer song and maybe someone can help me with the words, I think it's saying, Heave ho, gonna get dirty, heave ho gonna get dirty, walk with your boys out, walk with your boys out. I can do this all day.
This kind of mis-hearing songs is so common that it has a name. They're called "mondegreens", after an old song that had this problem. It contained a line similar to "They brought the Duke's body and laid him on the green", which was mis-heard as "They brought the Duke's body, and Lady Mondegreen".
Or Janis Joplin song Get While You Can. I heard the words as such, If you find someone, who comes along, who will give you some love and infection, I say get it while you can.....
Then there is always that song Dream Beaver.
Or that Moby Grape song, Can I walk down your street, naked if I want to. Oh Wait, That was the real words.
How about the words to the Mother's of Invention song, We can do the nasty on the White House lawn. Oh wait, that was the real words also.
Of course the Beatles sang about dating an under age girl in the song I Saw Her Standing There. Well she was just 17, you know what I mean, and the way she looked was way beyond repair. Now I'd rather dance with her mother but I saw her standing there.
