I am the queen of not knowing the right names to songs. I remember when I was little I used to belt “A Whole New World” and I had literally no idea what I was singing. That inability to decipher lyrics has carried on to adulthood for me. Sometimes I’m blasting the radio with my girls and they’ll look at me and say, “Molly, those are not the right words.” It’s okay though, because as it seems, I am not alone!
Ellen Degeneres once said, “Have you ever heard somebody sing some lyrics that you’ve never sung before, and you realize you’ve never sung the right words in that song? You hear them and all of a sudden you say to yourself, ‘Life in the Fast Lane?’ That’s what they’re saying right there? You think, ‘why have I been singing ‘wipe in the Vaseline?’ how many people have heard me sing ‘wipe in the Vaseline?’ I am an idiot.” So it seems like we’ve all had a case of misheard lyrics.
This video encompasses some of the most hilarious misheard lyrics of all time, but be forewarned, once you see this you can’t unhear the lyrics.
