    In Barcelona airport 8 years ago waiting in line. I related a story to my young children ( fluent in Spanish) that a friend in high School thought it was “ put the penny on the desk”. I start singing real loud, “ put the penny on the desk!” Well, my kids were mortified telling me to be quiet so like a dad, I sing even louder. I quickly found out that “penne” in Spanish is “ penis”....haven’t lived that one down yet. That will forever go down into their dad Hall of Fame moves.

    Pearl Jam - Yellow Ledbetter.

    I still hear him sing, “On a wizard and a whale.”
    The real lyric is, “I wanna wish it all away.”

    “Wrapped up like a douche in the middle of the night” or is it “revved up like a deuce another runner in the night”? Manfred Mann’s Earth Band. Blinded by the light.

    I’ve been walking in Central Park
    Singing after dark
    People think I'm crazy
    Stumbling on my feet
    Shuffling through the street
    Asking people, "What's the matter with chihuahua?"

    There's a new artist named Lennon Stella. Whenever her song comes on my wife's asks who is this. She thought it was two singers. Len and Stella

    Not me, but my girlfriend (wife now). Back in about 1985 we were driving somewhere and this song came on and she started singing it, bouncing and swinging her hair. I looked over at her and busted out laughing. Even to this day I remind her of it!

    Strawberry shortcake, stir!
    Strawberry shortcake, stir!

    (sung to the tune The Stroke by Billy Squire: Stroke me, stroke me... STROKE! ) LOL!

    Thought this of 'Paint It Black'

    I used to turn my head and tell my dog "let's go"

    Yeah I guess 'until my darkness goes' makes a lot more sense

    Went around the house saying "virgin" when Foreigner's song "urgent" was popular. At eight years old it didn't quite sink in why my family though it was so funny.

    Not all mine
    Don't stop thinking about your mama
    I'll never leave your pizza burning
    Looking for my log shaker of salt. (That one is mine). You know, the souvenir log shakers - made sense to me

    I used to think they said:
    “Did you exchange a walk on part of the wall
    For a negro in a cage.”
    It is really:
    Did you exchange
    A walk on part in the war
    For a lead role in a cage?
