Do you know the lyrics?

Music and Lyrics: Music from the Motion Pictur...

Just a question that I hope if you happen upon....that you'll answer....
I was thinking today about a song that I used to sing along with and had the wrong words....
in fact, I used to do that a lot. I had a boyfriend who very rudely told me once how dumb I was because I was saying the wrong words!
There is an old old old song call Poetry in Motion....I thought it was...ready for this?
OH a tree in motion! LOL

Did you ever sing along to a song only to find out that you had been singing the wrong words in some of it????????
Tell me about it!

Oh I do that all the time when I sing in the only two places I can. The shower and my car and my words are always better. LOL

Actually, think about it...a tree is ALWAYS in motion. Right? How can poetry move? Your lyrics make sense to me.

oh, i am soooooo good at making songs & nursery rhymes dirty. BUD would love this.

i remember thinking the Barry Manilow song was "Looks like we mated" instead of made it! bwwwahhhaaaahhha!

of course there are others but way to long to list.

Thom...LOL I try not to sing anymore..I can not carry a tune! there have been several songs that I butchered the lyics and I thought it was right!


Anni...now that what I thought!!! Oh a tree in motion...made perfect sense.


OH Stef..lol well...that's nothin....I added my own words a lot too that I made up on purpose...actually there was a small group of us that did that... Like remember the song Barbara Ann
"Went to a dance..lookin for romance...saw Barbara ann and took down her pants...barbara annnnnn
gawd... go figure are you sure you didnt run with mt group back then??

I do that a lot actually. Have you ever seen the movie 27 Dresses? I like their version of Benny and the Jets ("she's got electric boobs..." lol) Watch it if you haven't seen it. It's funny!

I have not seen it....but..I am always looking for a good movie...(I had our HBO and showtime shut off..Cause we barely watched it).... But maybe they'd have it on Demand...or I could rent it??
Thanks!

Lani said...

Stef...yes them were good days :-)

joyce said...

LOL.....I thought it was Oh a tree in motion too! I most definitely do that all the time....I can't think of any right now, but rest assured I most definitely do.

And thanks for the link, I think when i started following your blog I got it right but somehow it got turned around.

Lani, to answer your question about Wordless Wednesday...that is different than what I post...mine is WORDFUL Wednesday. Where we post a photo and then 'write' about it.

My wordful Wednesday button is linked...it will take you to the 'home page'. As will Outdoor Wednesday button on my blog.

WORDLESS Wednesday, you'll have to do a google search to get the link.

Have a wonderful afternoon.

Mejis said...

Lani, it was on Demand but not sure if it is now. You can rent it though.

Lani said...

thanks Mejis
thanks...I'll find it! Lani

Lani said...

thanks Anni...I appreciate the info! L

Yes.... I do indeed like to make up my own words. I actually heard Colin Hay (former lead singer of Men at Work) lament the fact that everyone thought the words to a song he wrote were "goats appear and fade away." Now I can't hear that line without thinking that!!!

Mark said...

I have done this many times in my life. Sometimes I like my version better, ha.

I sing the wrong words to songs all the time. I can't remember the right words. So, I just put it in what fits. I tend to do this before going to bed. My voice cracks too. The wrong wods don't bother my husband. It's the fact that my voice is horrible.

Had fun with the question.

Lani said...

must be a lot of this that do this! LOL
I have the worst voice too..
but I like my lyrics more than the right one also :-)
