What’d ya say?

August 8, 2021

“See that girl, watch her scream, kicking the dancing queen”
“It doesn’t make a difference if we’re naked or not”
“‘Scuse me while I kiss this guy”
“I can see clearly now, Lorraine is gone”
“You’ve been outright offensive for so long now”
“The girl with colitis goes by”
“There’s a bathroom on the right”

“Mary’s dress waves”

I like misheard song lyrics, but not as much as mispronounced or weird words. Like “flustrated” for “frustrated”, or “bobbed wire” for “barbed wire”. Like “Feberary” and “Lieberry”, or “GIF” (with a g) for “GIF” (with a j), or “mischievious” for “mischievous”.

There was an episode of Friends where Rachel (as portrayed by the talented, and enchanting, Jennifer Aniston) was asking the group for their opinion on the appropriate amount of time one should wait before making a move on a guy who had just broken up with their girlfriend. The Friends all offered opinions and then Joey asked, “Does he like you? Because if he doesn’t like you, this is all a moo-point.”

“A moo-point?” Rachel said.

“Yeah,” Joey answered. “It’s like a cow’s opinion. It doesn’t matter. It’s moo.”

Of course, Joey should have used today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt word, MOOT, but then that wouldn’t have been funny. Which I suppose would have then made this post moo. Or moot.

Not relevant to anything, but I recently went shopping for a new box spring and mootress. I didn’t realize that prices for bedding had risen so much.


If you’re interested, here are the correct lyrics to the eight songs referenced at the top:
“See that girl, watch that scene, digging the dancing queen”Dancing Queen, Abba
“It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not”Livin’ on a Prayer, Bon Jovi
“’Scuse me while I kiss the sky”– Purple Haze, Jimi Hendrix
“I can see clearly now, the rain is gone”I Can See Clearly Now, Johnny Nash
“You’ve been out ridin’ fences for so long now”Desperado, The Eagles
“The girl with kaleidoscope eyes”Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, The Beatles
“There’s a bad moon on the right”Bad Moon Rising, Creedence Clearwater Revival
“Mary’s dress sways”Thunder Road, Bruce Springsteen

    This was funny. I like your words to Dancing Queen better, though! The GIF/JIF thing kills me every time. I mentally correct people when I hear this…I can’t help myself. How about ‘pitcher’ for ‘picture’?

    Pitcher/Picture is a good one! Add that to my list as well 🙂 The misheard song lyrics, I didn’t write any of those, I got them all off the internet and those were the favorites of the ones I read.
