Sing-Along Wrong

I have always loved to sing. I even had the lead in my High School Musical and performed in some summer stock theater musical reviews in my younger days. However, I didn’t always get the lyrics right when it came to hearing songs and singing along.

Here are just a couple of the songs from my youth that I thought I knew but then later found out I was completely WRONG!!

Do you remember the song, Dirty D’s and the Thunder Chief? No? Well, when I was in high school, my best friend Kim and I used to sing it at the top of our lungs in the car! Okay, so we were a little off on the words. The real lyrics: “Dirty Deeds and They’re Done Dirt Cheap.”

Deck the halls with balls of Challey (That’s the way my father pronounced “Challah” – you know the braided bread.) It was actually a Christmas Carole many of you sang a million times, “Deck the Halls With Boughs of Holly.”

However, as a first grader, this nice Jewish girl had no idea what a “bough of holly” had to do with anything. Okay, so I also had no idea why anyone would crumple up a piece of bread and throw it at the hall either, but somehow it made a nice jingle!

Well, I have shared some of my most embarrassing lyric faux pas with you. Now it’s your turn. Come on, I know you must sing-along-WRONG sometimes. ‘Fess up!

    I am laughing so hard my kids had to come in to see what I am laughing at. I can’t even explain it to them. The minute I saw your topic, I thought the same thing.

    Every time I hear that song I think of you 🙂

    oh and here in Australia the lines to Dirty Deeds are usually sung as
    “Dirty Deeds done with sheep” 😉

    Hey in KIng of Pain by the Police – my little sister used to sing “I’m always leaking away” instead of I’m always the king of pain.” I used to howl laughing over that one!

    So now I don’t feel so bad about the worst of mine.
