  • Omg, this is really embarrassing, and my husband makes fun of me ALL the time for it, know that song Maneater by Hall and Oates? Well, when it says, "she's a man eater"...Omg, I don't even wanna say it, lmao...I thought they were saying, "She's a bad eagle", bahahaha. I thought it said that when I was little, and I guess I never learned the real words, and once I sang it in front of my husband and he was like, "WHAT did you just say? Baby, PLEASE tell me you did not just say Bad Eagle", lolol! :blush:

  • This isn't really what you're asking, but I have a really hard time with that song "Second Chance" by.....(Oh, wow, I need sleep)....???

    I know part of the chorus goes "I just saw Haley's Comet, she waved", but only because I looked it up. But no matter how many times I hear that song, I can NOT make those lyrics fit in there!
