You Were LOOTED??? (duh)

Post by Harvey Winters »

So, basically for the better part of about 6 yrs, or so, I thought it was "Neutered"...

Excuse me, I have to go step in front of a speeding R.I.F. truck...

You know, I never heard that -- but now that you bring it up, I can totally see it.

Well, I did find out, because I was trying to convince someone it's an awesome song...
So, there's that...

So, this is definitely more of a stretch, but when I first heard the next track on the album, "The Sound of Coming Down," I heard, "Hey, you know nobody's chasing knives" instead of "Hey, you know nobody's chasing us."

What's more, I introduced the album (and song) to a friend and he's been singing it that way since. Oops!

I know it's wrong, and childish, but I still say "Giant f'n spoon"

Scared Straight was mine. I was singing it wrong for a long time. As mentioned elsewhere on the board, I thought it was "Washington's on the line"...and I don't even remember what I thought the "Miss. Mean Mini Bar Guard" line was -- but it wasn't that. And "Pretend sleeping '/ waiting" was "pretensely waiting".

okay, admittedly I'm terribly bad at lyrics, but are you saying John isn't singing 'chasing knives'?

Right, I just looked it up and he isn't, but I sure have thought so for the past 6 years.
Well, I think it's an utterly brilliant line, so I'm gonna stick to it.

Spacing can also be a problem:

"I used to love the mall. but they burned me up"
