The Dock: Oops, I Sang It Again
We’ve all been there. Driving down the road, windows rolled down, singing your favourite song loudly and proudly. And then the person in the seat next to you suggests, “I don’t think that you’re singing that right!”
Misheard lyrics are expected occurrences, especially for those of us who grew up before Karaoke and the proliferation of lyric sites on the internet. Officially, they’re called mondgreens but most of us know them as “lyrics that I’ve been getting wrong all my life.”
Tonight on The Dock, we’re asking for your mondgreens—songs that have lyrics that you have either been wrong about, or that you just couldn’t figure out, prompting you to substitute the next best thing.
So come clean! What is that song you’ve been singing wrong all this time?
