Random: Garbled Song Lyrics

I was skimming through Alphainventions and saw a blog post written by someone still apparently mourning the death of Michael Jackson.  She said she and some friends were listening to MJ’s song “Belly Jeans.”  I had to giggle thinking about Michael crooning about “Belly Jeans, she’s not my lover…”

Back in the 70’s, a family friend thought the one-hit wonder “My Sharona” was actually “Rice-a-Roni.”  Like an entire song was devoted to the ” San Francisco treat.”  This also brought to mind the episode of “King of Queens” where Doug was insisting that the song “Forever in Blue Jeans” was “Reverend Blue Jeans,” about some really cool preacher that wore blue jeans.  This really cracked me up the first time I saw it because I, too, at one time thought the lyrics were “reverend blue jeans.”

    LOL – It’s hilarious when people screw up words to songs, especially when what they think the words are make absolutely no sense. 🙂

    Thanks for starting my day off with a BIG smile. This post really takes me back, I’d totally forgotten about that Rice-a-Roni song.
