  • Indecipherable song lyrics

    What is it about rock where, for almost half a century now, very few of us can remember the ACCURATE lyrics to most of these songs? After previously making a post that referred to Louie Louie..........I'm still stuck with the confusion of it after all these many years.

    Evidently, our parents at that time were confused too and made a fuss about it. So, I went onto an old FBI site tonight to see what some of the anal complaints about the lyrics were. Here's the first one in Elliot Ness' file of interpretations:


    Oh Louie Louie, Oh no, get her way down low.

    Oh Louie Louie, Oh no, get her way down low.


    A fine little girl awaiting for me

    She's just a girl, across the way

    Well I'll take her and park all alone

    She's never a girl, I'd lay at home


    At night at 10, I lay her again

    Fuck you girl, oh all the way

    Oh on my bed and I lay her there

    I meet a rose in her hair


    OK, let's give it to em right now!


    She's got a rag on I'll move above

    It won't be long, she'll slip it off

    I'll take her in my arms again

    I'll tell her I'll never leave again


    Get that broad outta here!


    Wonder if they ever figured out, In A Garden Of Eden?

        There actually is a term for these misheard lyrics. They're called mondegreens.

        We had a discussion about these several months ago (on a forum far, far away).

        A couple of my favorites are from Elton John and are probably due to first hearing these in the car on AM radio.

        I thought he was singing "I like girls." You know, this is about the time it became public knowledge he was gay and I figured it was his attempt to deny it.
        LONG LIVE THE NOTE!

            I misunderstood the Stones "Beast a Burden". I thought they were saying the Pizza's Burning
            Make America Great For Once.

                No song is as indecipherable as Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."

                  In LZ's "No Quarter"

                  taking a path where no one goes

                  sounds like

                  taking a bath when no one's home

                    Smells Like Teen Spirit

                    Load up on guns
                    Bring your friends
                    It’s fun to lose
                    And to pretend
                    She’s overboard
                    Myself assured
                    I know I know
                    A dirty word

                    Hello (x 16)

                    With the lights out it’s less dangerous
                    Here we are now
                    Entertain us
                    I feel stupid and contagious
                    Here we are now
                    Entertain us
                    A mulatto
                    An albino
                    A mosquito
                    My libido
                    Yea

                    I’m worse at what I do best
                    And for this gift I feel blessed
                    Our little group has always been
                    And always will until the end

                    Hello (x 16)

                    With the lights out it’s less dangerous
                    Here we are now
                    Entertain us
                    I feel stupid and contagious
                    Here we are now

                    An albino
                    A mosquito
                    My libido
                    Yea

                    And I forget
                    Just what it takes
                    And yet I guess it makes me smile
                    I found it hard
                    Its hard to find
                    Oh well, whatever, nevermind

                    Hello (x 16)

                    With the lights out it’s less dangerous
                    Here we are now

                    I feel stupid and contagious
                    Here we are now

                      Patsy Cline cleaned up "Crazy", which was written by Willie Nelson. It is supposed to be "You left me for somebody nude".

                        It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine).

                            Has anyone ever actually figured out what the Beatles are saying at the end of "I am the Walrus"? Is it "CORNFLAKE, CORNFLAKE, SITTING ON A CORNFLAKE"? "TAKE DRUGS, TAKE DRUGS, EVERYBODY TAKE DRUGS"?

                            "Tumbling Dice" by the Stones has indecipherable lyrics but you can sort of make them out if you're reading along with a lyrics sheet.

                              Oh Louie Louie, Oh no, get her way down low.

                              Oh Louie Louie, Oh no, get her way down low.
                              What does that mean.

                              Explain?
