Pull My Finger…

February 18th, 2015

There are many misheard song lyrics out there and many sites devoted to them. I won’t go into all the dirty deeds done with sheep, because that’s obviously a joke more-so than a misheard lyric. Although, once you’ve heard the joke, it’s hard to un-hear it. Then there’s Queen singing “just gimme fried chicken!” They did that on purpose, but the irony is (somebody spot check my use of the word “irony”) nobody noticed for quite awhile. We all thought Freddy had sung “One Vision” – that’s the name of the song. And again, it’s one of those things that once you know, you can never un-hear it. I did say I wouldn’t go into it, didn’t I? Too late.

I’d like to introduce two of my favorite misheard lyrics, or mondegreens. I think they’re pretty funny whether or not you know the songs. This is what I heard:

“pull my finger if ya feel the same way”
-Dr. Dre – California Love (@ the 1:24 mark on video)

“Smokin’ cat food, smoking’ cat food.”
Bone Thugs-n-Harmony – Creepin On Ah Come Up
