Speaking of misquoted lyrics, despite being a great patriotic song, the Star Spangled Banner has also put hundreds of performers to shame. It probably wouldn't be so hard to sing if the lyrics were written by Rebecca Black instead of Francis Scott Key. I imagine it might sound more like this: "Is the flag still there? Oh yah, we so excited..."
Here are some lyrics from songs that can be a little unclear at times. I don't know if it is the fault of the performer or just inattentive listeners, but I've heard the parts of the following songs sung as follows.
"...On a corn dog's winter night"- REO Speedwagon- I can't stop this feeling
"...The Dukes of Hazzard in the classroom"- Pink Floyd- The Wall
"...Don't put the blame on the diet seven up"- Cory Hart-Sunglasses at night
"...Dirty deeds and the dunder chief"- AC/DC- Dirty Deeds
Luckily I don't have much of a singing voice so I don't have to worry about getting caught singing the wrong words to songs unless someone happens to plant a bug in my car. If you can think of any other frequently mis-sung or just misunderstood lyrics, let me know in the comments section.
