Do you ever mis-hear song lyrics, and wonder how what you've just heard makes any sense until you look the lyrics up, or someone corrects you? This happened to me a lot during the '90s. I thought a certain Fatboy Slim song entailed praising someone like shoe, rather than "I have to praise you like I should." I wondered why BB Mak was singing about back hair. (The correct lyrics are "back here baby.") Imagine my confusion when I found out that Train actually did, in fact, sing that a woman had drops of Jupiter in her hair. I'm still trying to figure that one out.
