Like that time when I was singing along to Phil Collins’ Like China (it was the ’80s, okay?) as a kid in the family car, only to belt out, “AND I’LL HOLD YOUR VAGINA” instead of, “and I’ll hold you like China”. Hello, Mum and Dad: I promise I turned out okay. I think.
Here’s a few more times we got song lyrics hilariously wrong. All we can say is that the Mamamia team sure have active imaginations.
1. Taylor Swift: Style.
Wrong lyric: “Likes it rough, he’s taking off his clothes.”
Correct lyric: “Lights are off, he’s taking off his coat.”
The first time I heard this song I commented to my husband, “Wow, who would have thought that Taylor Swift would be into rough sex?!” He looked at my quizzically. Actually, now that I think of it, that’s how he looks at me all the time.
2. The Eagles: Heartache Tonight.
Wrong lyric: "There's gonna be a party tonight, a party tonight, I know."
Correct lyric: "There's gonna be a heartache tonight, a heartache tonight, I know."
Well, if you haven't had your heart broken at a party, you haven't lived.
Is singing allowed at Jungle Body classes? (Post continues after video.)
3. Sade: Smooth Operator.
Wrong lyric: "Schools of Loreto, schools of Loreto."
Correct lyric: "Smooth operator, smooth operator."
The Loreto Sisters have set up several Catholic schools around the world. But no, sorry, they didn't get their own custom-made pop song.
4. The Police: Message in a Bottle.
Wrong lyric, Exhibit A: "A year has passed since I broke my nose."
