Misheard lyrics? I Choose Shoes.

We’ve all done it before, we hear a song one way and then find they are saying something completely different.

Kids are notorious for this, aren’t they?… like when my son hears The Fray’s  “How to save a life” he sings “How to stay alive” , or when he sings “a beautiful night, the beautiful sun… walking in a winter wonderland” .. understandable mix ups right?

But adults do it too, though we don’t often like to admit it.

"The Crosseyed Bear that you gave to me"

A  friend of ours use to swear Alanis Morrisette was singing about a“Cross eyed Bear” in “You Oughtta Know“.. and now that he shared it with us, it still messes us up til this day whenever we hear the song. I mean thinking about it, it could have definitely been a lyrical possibility. Only a jerk would not only give his girlfriend a cross eyed bear but then take it back from her and deny her visitation with said bear.

Well I recently had one of these moments when Mr.Complicated put on David Guetta’s new song with Kelly Rowland and Ne-yo.

I clear as day heard “You wanna make me Shoes?” and I thought this is the most awesome song ever! …. HELL Yea! make me some shoes!… Stilletto’s, Boots.. I’m not picky… I don’t care which you make– just make them cute!

Then I found out they were saying “CHOOSE” … O yea! sure. well shatter a girls dreams why don’t you!

… still all day long I kept hearing the song “SHOES” in my head… and started imagining the amazing video that could have gone along with it, if only David Guetta would have gotten it right ..(why don’t these artist consult me?)

So  though I was limited on time to really sync the song and images, I decided to make a quick youtube for you all.. and let you CHOOSE… are they saying SHOES?

    I totally hear “shoes” – that's crazy! The song “Hold me Now” from The Thompson Twins back in the 80's said “Hold me now, warm my heart” and I have always sang “Hold Me now, WASH MY CAR” – Hubby makes fun of me, but that's what I hear LOL!

    I have had some great misheard lyric fun in my life. lol

    My brother always sung 'Knocking on Heaven's Door” as “Knocking on Kevin's Door.” His best friend was named Kevin and he was convinced that was what the song was about.

    My Dad, although he knew it was not the correct lyrics, used to sing Dire Straits 'Money for Nothing' “Monkeys cost nothing if the chimps are free'

    My aunt used to sing Mariah Carey & Boys II Men's 'One Sweet Day' as 'Once We Date'

    My best friend's sister was convinced Green Day's 'When I Come Around' was in fact 'When I ride the Greyhound.'

    I though as a kid (and possibly until like last week) Dire Straits “Walk of Life” was actually saying 'I do the walk on by.' I dont even know what a walk on by is! lol!

    I know there were more, but I can't think of them right now. lol

    Too funny! My son was tiny when Madagascar came out, and he loved to sing “I Like to Move It” at the top of his lungs. But when the song got to the “jungle boogie” part, Handsome Boy gleefully shouted out, instead, “Shove a Cookie!”
