How can you forget the lyrics that you never knew?
Apparantly this morning is Figure Out The Lyrics Morning in my bathroom because I just heard two songs, back to back which I THOUGHT I knew by heart but figured out a lyric IN EACH that I never knew I never knew!
Don’t you want me?
You know I can’t believe you when I hear that you won’t see me.
(That part I knew).
But here’s the mystery lyric that I’ve been singing wrong for 20someodd years:
The five days we have had have been such good times/I still love you.
I’m so proud! I can’t believe I didn’t know that! I think I was singing:
Thefibaywe & had…
“Five days” makes way more sense.
And THEN the very next song on the radio…. I almost can’t bear to admit the shame…Don’t Stop Believing.
Some’ll win/Some will lose/Some were born to sing the blues.
to which I USED to sing since 1981:
Summon all to sing the blues.
(At least THOSE are actual words).
But the JOY of getting the lyrics correct! Impossible to describe.
There should be a game show about that.
