Misheard Lyrics

Status: Haha. Look at my blog some more.
Song: The Wire by Haim. I listen to this song whenever I walk to class. It beats to my steps, I love love love that.

I don't know how it happened but somehow, some way, I am going to be a blogger for my Pharmacy Society website. I'm still mulling at how I'm going to deal with this new 'responsibility'. It's either 'HA HA fuck this shit I'm going to write as awful as I can while being sassy about it' or 'I'm going to be adult and mature about this by writing it like I write for exams.' way

I once wrote an essay titled,' About Myself' where I was really excited about it at first and then I realized a teacher was going to read my essay. So, I pussied out and wrote the standard way of writing exam essays.

My English teacher then told me,'You had an entertaining introduction but it ended not as spectacular as it started.'

See how different my writing style can be?

Anyhoo, this week isn't really my best week of 2013 (involved a lot of head thumping against the bed above me, a lot of cringe-worthy moments, depressing thoughts sinking in, I lost my priorities, and Countless of sleepless nights.).

 So, I don't want to make any decision during my bad days.

Recently, I was watching Demi Lovato's Heart Attack (Yes, I am that old school kid who still watch MTV. Sue me.) with my sister.

Me: I still don't understand why she would say, 'You make me grooooowwww'
Sister: Uh. No. She said,'You make me gloooowwww.'
Me: No. Really?
Sister: Why would she want to grow and then cover up about it?


Then, my sister told me her friend misheard the same part but hers goes like: 'You make me goooooooo.'

We can now all agree that either I have a bad hearing or Demi Lovato said it wrong.


There were a lot of songs that I've misheard and it stuck until today.
The most misheard songs are usually from Fall Out Boy.

From its' first hit song, 'Sugar, We're Going Down' til 'Young Volcanoes', I always end up singing the wrong lyrics.

Most of the time, I sang to Sugar, We're Going Down. It goes like:

'Drop a heart, make a name, we're slippy in , slippy in to the hottie.
We're going under, in little around.. *mumbled*
Sugar, we're going down swingin' 
I'll be your number one with the bullet. 
A little complex, cockin with bullet.'

The right lyric is:

Drop a heart and break a name
We're always sleeping in and sleeping for the wrong team
We're goin' down, down, in an earlier round
And sugar, we're goin' down swingin'
I'll be your number one with a bullet
A loaded gun complex, cock it and pull it


It's inevitable. I love Fall Out Boy dearly but Patrick Stump mostly mumbled his way into the songs.



When I was a kid, I used to be a huge Westlife fan. There were 5 of us and each had a member assigned to them. I got Shane. :D :D :D
I especially love this song called World Of Our Own.

Since we were really small and young, none of us had a proper English yet.

So instead of :
We got a little world of our own
I'll tell you things that no one else knows 

I let you in where no-one else goes 
What am I doing without you 

We sang:
We got a little world terbabo
I tell you thing no one else know
I let you in where no one else go
What am I do without you

Then, k-pop came and took over my life for 2 years. 

Korean language is probably shouldn't be viewed in English. It may sound racist but it really isn't.

The most prominent one was Super Junior's Sorry Sorry.

Actual romanized lyric:
Sorry Sorry Sorry Sorry
Naega naega naega munjuh

What I actually listened:
Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry
Nigga, nigga, nigga monjo

Just to prove it to you, try reading the YouTube comments. 

The most embarrasing of all is I misheard the lyric to my own National Anthem, Negaraku.

Actual lyric: Tanah tumpahnya darahku.
I heard: Tanah tumpahnya negaraku

Actual lyric: Rahmat bahagia, tuhan kurniakan
I heard: Rakyat bahagia, tuhan kurniakan.

That's what you get for never singing to the National Anthem. I never sing to any songs that requires standing straight. 

I can't even remember how my school anthem and matriculation college anthem sounds like.
I got confused to my primary school anthem with my high school anthem. 
We've been there. WHO DOESN'T SING OUT LOUD TO BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY?!  (credits)
Guess who will be belting out to Bohemian Rhapsody tonight??

Easy come easy go.
will you let me go
Bismillah! No - we will not let you go (let him go)
Bismillah! We will not let you go (let him go)
Bismillah! We will not let you go (let me go)
Will not let you go - let me go (never)
Never let you go (let me go)
Never let me goooooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh mamma mia, mamma mia, mamma mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
FOR ME.
