I would pay a lot of money if there was someone in the world that could perfectly decipher every "song lyric" correctly. This week, I asked some friends what their biggest lyric misinterpretations were, and this is what I got...
1. “Cause I’ve been actin’ like someone that fell on the floor, so shove fudge up the refrigerator"
Actually: “'Cause I've been acting like sour milk all on the floor; it's your fault you didn't shut the refrigerator”
Song - The Sweet Escape by Gwen Stefani and Akon
It seems like our girl Gwen needs some annunciation lessons...or maybe rapping just really isn't her forte.
2. "All the lonely Starbucks lovers"
Actually: "Got a long list of ex-lovers"
Song - Blank Space by Taylor Swift
Hey, if I'm going to be lonely, may as well have some good java!
3. "Hold me closer, Tony Danza!"
Actually: "Hold me closer, Tiny Dancer!"
Song - Tiny Dancer by Elton John
Nothing wrong with singing about beloved actors, right?
4. "Ludacris concert cockatoo parrot"

Actually: "A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it"
Song - Sugar, We're Going Down by Fall Out Boy
I don't think even Fall Out Boy ever knows what they're saying...
5. "You can be my green bean and baby I'll rule"
Actually: "You can be my queen bee and baby I'll rule"
Song - Royals by Lorde
It's okay, Lorde, veggies will keep you healthy so you can rule effectively!
6. "Had sweet love but I lost it, she got too close so I farted"
Actually: "Had sweet love but I lost it, she got too close so I fought it"
Song - Knee Deep by Zac Brown Band
Hate when this happens.
7. "Marmalade, we're making out ohhhhh yeeahhhh"
Actually: "Normally we're making out ohhh yeeahhh"
Song - Tongue Tied by Grouplove
Maybe some spreads are better kissers than others.
8. "Should I give up, or should I just keep chasing penguins?"
Actually: "Should I give up, or should I just keep chasing pavements?"
Song - Chasing Pavements by Adele
Hey, penguins are cute. We don't blame you, Adele.
9. "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy"
Actually: "'Scuse me while I kiss the sky"
Song - Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix
In this case, the misinterpreted lyric seems to make way more sense than the actual one!
10. "Concrete jungle, wet dream tomato"
Actually: "Concrete jungle where dreams are made of"
Song - Empire State of Mind by Jay Z and Alicia Keys
Every. Single. Time.
