Mis-heard Lyrics…I am so stupid!

6 08 2008

There’s a song on the radio by the Pussycat Dolls called “When I Grow Up”

The refrain of this song (which you can see in the following clip) goes something like:

When I grow up…I wanna be famous…I wanna be a star…I wanna be in movies.

When I grow up…I wanna see the world…drive nice cars…I wanna….

wanna what?

Well I’ve spent the last two months thinking they were saying “I WANNA HAVE BOOBIES”

Which makes perfect sense, as I think most of those girls are not factory original. But, no, the correct lyric is “I WANNA HAVE GROUPIES”

The Vinyl Villager hangs his head in embarassment. But I know I can’t be the only one who thought they wanted boobies.

I always thought David Bowie said “Ground control to Major Tong” but it’s Tom…Of course the Hendrix song Kiss the Sky” not “Kiss this Guy” I am the worst and I think the dolls aspiring to get Boobies sounds better than Groupies!! I change the Lyrics to what I like don’t hang your head too low.

I’m grown up – well, physically, anyway – and I still want boobies. LMAO. My daughter and I had a good laugh at this one. She’s heard this song and knew it didn’t say boobies. I’ve never heard the song before, simply because I don’t listen to the radio.

I think they need to rewrite Boobies sound more like what girls want when they grow up plus I thought guys had the groupies and girls had stalkers lmao

OMG. I’m glad you cleared that up before I started singing it really loud in public. I totally thought it said boobies too. I mean, when I was young I wanted boobies! It makes more sense than “groupies”!

see…we need to petition them to change the song…
can we get a consensus that more women want boobies than groupies?

I love that song and I didnt even think about it saying boobies until a Radio DJ said that.

I refuse to sing “groupies” the next time I hear that song! How many little girls have EVER said they wanna have groupies?? None. Except maybe Mylie Cyrus.

I’m with Little Miss…..always wanted, never got!

Put my name on the petition. Thanks.

I think groupies would be kinda cool. A bunch of people hanging around telling you how great you are, hanging on your every word, doing your bidding. Yeah, I’m thinking I could make that work – at least until they got my house cleaned and all the yard work complete!!

Love it! It is officially “boobies” here now. Have you checked out some of the misheard lyrics videos on youtube? They are fun! Here is my fave:

Nicotine Queen—it never occurred to me that there could be anything else they might have wanted…maybe I have a dirty mind?

Big Hair–see, boobies it is!

Lori–those kinda groupies would be awesome…

Kim–After the youtube click I made on your blog a bit ago, Im afraid to click anything else you send me to. LOL!

7 08 2008

alntv–see, I knew I wasnt the only one! There was never even any question for me…

I agree. It does sound lihe they are saying boobies. Maybe one of them is also confused about the lyrics, so you can hear it in the recording.

I cannot for the life of me remember the name or the group who did this song but it was out around 2001.
The singers sing something like, “shoes on my feet, I got ’em” and I thought for a long time, they were singing, “shoes on my feet, I farted”.

I thought that I was just getting really old and that was why I couldn’t understand some of the words but you are younger than me. So, I feel better!

LOL!! That song is Independant Woman by Karma’s Cousin or Destiny’s Child or Uranus’s Uncle or something.

I was thinking about this earlier this morning. I heard a wanna-be Journey band singing

“When the lights go down in the city……

‘Cept the singer kept using “sh” at the beginning of the word city. So, it sounded like he was singing this….

“When the lights go down in the shitty……”

Why do they do that? Do they think it’s sexy or sumptin’?
