    Misheard Lyrics

    I know not all of you are fans of Pearl Jam, but if you've ever wondered about the lyrics to some of their hits, this it the place.

    I'm still figuring out songs of the late sixties and seventies let alone any of the "new" stuff My wife thinks it's a hoot when we're driving along listening to the radio and all of a sudden I realize what the words are to the song that's playing that is 35-40 years old
    Aloha,

    What goes around, comes around.

    The actual, Yellow Ledbetter lyrics (Love the guitar !)

    Unsealed
    On a porch a letter sat
    Then you said i wanna leave it again
    Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand
    And on the sand I wanna leave it again... yeah
    On a weekend I wanna wish it all away yeah...
    And they called and I said that I want what I said
    And then I call out again
    And the reason oughta leave her calm I know
    I said i dont know whether
    Im the boxer or the bag
    Ah yeah ehh....
    Can you see them
    Out on the porch
    But they dont wave
    I see them round the front way yeah
    And I know I dont want to stay...

    Make me cry <guitar solo>

    Ooooh I see
    I dont know theres something else
    I wanna drum it all away
    Oh I said I dont, I dont know whether Im a boxer or the bag
    Ah yeah ehh....
    Can you see them
    Out on the porch
    But they dont wave
    I see them round the front way yeah
    And I know I dont want to stay
    I dont wanna stay (2x)
    Dont
    Dont wanna
    Oh... yeah... oooh...

    Heck Joe Cocker could have done the song better!
    Joe at wood stock ....a little help from me friends...

    Very Funny Vaughn! BTW I'm a big fan of PJ, saw them for the first time in 1991 at a free concert at the University of Kansas.

    I had a friend that thought "Werewolves of London" was "Where was the Thunder"....

    And the debate still rages to this day!

    The Kingsmen's version (1965)

    Louie Louie Lyrics (Maybe! )


    CHORUS:

    Louie Louie, oh no
    Me gotta go
    Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said
    Louie Louie, oh baby
    Me gotta go

    Fine little girl waits for me
    Catch a ship across the sea
    Sail that ship about, all alone
    Never know if I make it home

    CHORUS

    Three nights and days I sail the sea
    Think of girl, constantly
    On that ship, I dream she's there
    I smell the rose in her hair.

    CHORUS

    Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!

    GUITAR SOLO

    See Jamaica, the moon above
    It won't be long, me see me love
    Take her in my arms again
    Tell her I'll never leave again

    CHORUS

    Let's take it on outa here now
    Let's go!!
