So I’ll admit it: I’m probably the worst person at song lyrics you could ever meet. Like bad, bad. In fact, there’s a scene in the movie 27 Dresses where Katherine Heigl sings the wrong lyrics to Bennie and the Jets (She’s got electric boobs!) and at that very moment, all of my friends turn to me and laugh, as if I, myself, had just sang the wrong words. But in all honesty, I guess I have earned this reputation fairly.
Where do I even start? How about that lovely JT song where I loudly belted out, “Who’s your sexy ho?!” when the actual lyrics are, “Get your sexy on.” Yeah, I was quickly corrected on that, well actually, after my friends stopped laughing at the hilarity of my obvious mistake.
“I……. went…….. to……. the DANGER ZONE!” It’s too bad this one was sung at the top of my lungs. In a car with like 5 people who then got silent. “Um, Erika? It’s highway to the danger zone.”
Then there’s my all time favorite: “Ace duka roka duka roka duka roka. Yeah, we’re trippin’. We’re trippin’ trippin’ trippin’ trippin’.” Come on, Run DMC, you don’t want to ace duka roka?? AND, I just found out in my trusty google search that I had the wrong lyrics again, even after being corrected. So the real lyrics are: "It's tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time. It's tricky...it's tricky, tricky, tricky, tricky." In my defense, I totally knew those weren’t the actual words, but I tend to fill in words that I don’t know in songs. So, apparently, I only got “it’s” correct. I’m that good.
For your viewing pleasure, Bennie and the Jets as sung by the lovely, Katherine Heigl. We all have our quirks, right?
