Some time ago, I wrote a post about mondegreens, or misheard song lyrics. The human mind is a mysterious thing. It’s the reason we see the shape of a bunny in the clouds. Our brains are wired to make sense of the nonsensical. So when we don’t exactly understand what we hear, the good old little grey cells kick in and supply the missing pieces, often with hilarious results.
On the other hand, sometimes a cheeky husband deliberately changes the lyrics of a song for comic effect. I present to you Say What?! Part Deux.
From the immortal Bob Marley, we have the song One Love: Let’s get together and pee outside.
Any time he’s feeling stressed, this is Mr. R.’s go-to Foreigner phrase from Double Vision: My mind is racing but my body’s in Belize.
Recall the eighties group Midnight Oil and their song Burning Beds? This is the way it goes in my house: How do we sleep when our butts are burning?
Also from the eighties, Robert Palmer’s Addicted to Love becomes Might as well face it, you’re a dickhead in love.
But my personal favorite, because who doesn’t love Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody: Bag of douche, bag of douche, will you do the fandango?
Mr. R. always say, “Any song, any time, anywhere.” Yep. We laugh a lot at our house.
