on another note

...so you know how it goes...
you're in the car with a friend...
tunes turned up...
favorite song comes on...
....
and then you realize that you actually don't know the real words to the song because your friend just pointed out how those words you've been singing for years are wrong...
...
oh, so that's never happened to you...
well, it happened to the girl child this week...


the girl, the boy and I are sitting in the car...
the girl starts singing
the song...Bon Jovi's Shot Through the Heart...


her version...
"Shot through the heart, 
and you're too late...
You need love, a bad mate"
...
me-"Um, what did you just sing?"
girl-"The song"
me-"Yes, but what words did you just sing to that song?"
girl-"Shot through the heart, and you're too late... You need love, a bad mate"
me-giggles
boy-giggles
girl-"what?"
me-"those aren't the words."
girl-"really?"
me-"You need love, a bad mate, isn't even a sentence"
girl-"well, it's a song and songs sometimes don't make sense."
....
and she's right...


and FYI the words are
Shot through the heart,
And you're to blame
You give love a bad name


so, what song did you sing wrong until you figured it out?

Until my senior year of high school, I sang "Hey Rodrigo" for the first line of Brown Eyed Girl. My family STILL teases me about that!

Oh my...so many words I've messed up along the way! Ryan mocks me constantly. Can't think of any off the top of my head, but there are plenty! So cute. Fun that you recorded the memory.

I know it's a common one, but Edge of Seventeen by Stevie Nicks...I've always said "just like the one-winged dove" until literally a month ago...I ran out to my back porch and screamed to my mom, who lives next door: "it's WHITE winged dove!!! I finally figured it out! I knew it couldn't be ONE winged!" LOL! And I LOVE Krista's comment about Hey Rodrigo...that's hilarious cuz I've said that before! <3
