'Scuse me while I kiss this guy

Awake at 4am and trying to get the baby to burp, I suggested to my husband that if he walk around in a jaunty way, Piper would let loose the gas. My sexy husband then did his best impression of John Travolta a la Saturday Night Fever which prompted me to break out in song.

"Whether you're a mother or whether you're a brother you're stayin' alive. Stayin' Alive."

"Huh. I always thought they were saying, 'Woman-uh, woman-uh, woman-uh, woman-uh, stayin' alive, stayin' alive."

Maybe it was the fact that I was so sleep deprived, but I became hysterical hearing my husband say this and I nearly busted out what had been recently sewn up during Piper's birth. " For 30 years, you have been thinking the words to that song are actually humm-anna humm-anna humm-anna?!!!!"

"NO- WOMAN-UH, woman-ah, woman-ah."

My response: to continue with the laughter.

"See, this is why I reserve myself when baring my soul to you. You laugh at me incessantly."

You would too, internet. Right? What song lyrics have you been mistaken about for the past 3 decades?

i'm pretty good with lyrics, but I did know a guy once who thought it was "Way Down South" instead of "Lay Down Sally".
