    Almost the same, I heard "I gots-ta go shopping..."

    Pretty much how I've been hearing it.

    The sidewinder sleeps tonight, REM

    "Come and meet your maker"?
    "Calling from Jamaica?"
    "Call me when you wake her?"

    Lord have mercy what's Michael saying?!

    I had a friend who used to sing the chorus to the Yardbird's Shape of Things (Come tomorrow - will I be younger....) as Cousin Morrow..........

    I heard it the other day and damn, if it still doesn't sound like that.

    10 cc: "be Poised and Quiet" instead of "big Boys don't Cry".

    We liked to screw around with known lyrics also:

    Bob Marley's We Jammin' becomes "Pajamas".

    "Pokey likes Jammies, too!"


    And know you can well imagine what happens to "Puff the Magic Dragon" once the words get reworked.

    "You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille

    Four hundred children in the crop in the field"

    I always pictured young faces peeking out through the corn.

    A singer rather than a song...

    My youngest thought Gwen Stefani was called Wednesday Fanny.
