Whoops... mistaken lyrics 2

Thursday, August 5, 2010

Go here to see my previous post on mistaken lyrics.

Laura Bell Bundy - Giddy On Up

My version:
Love love you let me down
Make me miss Teresa
Love love you let me down
Think you should be leavin'
Love love you let me down
Let me down
No you won't string me along
You better be movin' on
Giddy on up
Giddy on out

Actual lyrics:
Love love you let me down
Makin' this too easy
...

I was wondering who Teresa was.  Now I know she exists only in my head.

Young Money feat. Lloyd - Bedrock

My version:
I hate to see her go
But I love to watch her leave
I keep her running back and forth
Socrates

Actual lyrics:
I hate to see her go
But I love to watch her leave
I keep her running back and forth
Soccer team

Socrates, soccer team... whatevs.  For a while, I thought Young Money was really deep, all into philosophy and all that.  Imagine my surprise when I realized the actual lyrics.  Another shallow rapper, geez.

Lady Gaga - Alejandro

My version:
Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch
Just want your cigarette love
Don't call my name
Don't call my name
Roberto
Alejandro

Actual lyrics:
Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch
Just smoke one cigarette and hush
...

So, while Googling for the actual lyrics to Alejandro, I didn't find what I expected.  I thought she was saying "Just want your secret love" and I thought it just sounded like cigarette.  Apparently it is cigarette and she doesn't even mention love in the line.  Lyrics web sites seem to disagree on what the lyrics are so I'm not sure if the above is even right.  Some say it's "Just smoke my cigarette and run," some say "Just smoke my cigarette and hush."  Who knows!

  1. I thought it was "cigarette butt" -- that would have made sense.
