Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX
The wrong lyrics: “I'm so fancy, can't you taste this scone?”
The actual lyrics: “I'm so fancy, can't you taste this gold?”
Because you think that scones are a hoity-toity breakfast dish, everyone will think your standards are beyond low.
The wrong lyrics: "Hush hush, keep it downtown, this is scary"
The actual lyrics: “Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry”
Your friends will inevitably wonder why singing this song at karaoke is scary to you, and then never invite you to karaoke again.
“Message in a Bottle”
The wrong lyrics: “A year has passed since I broke my nose”
The actual lyrics: “A year has passed since I wrote my note”
People will want to re-break that nose of yours if you keep singing it wrong.
“Bad Moon Rising”
Creedence Clearwater Revival
The wrong lyrics: “There's a bathroom on the right”
The actual lyrics: “There's a bad moon on the rise"
If there happens to be a bathroom on the right while you're singing this, you might actually be helping someone. In that case, go forth!
