He’s got the whole world in his pants.

So, you know how sometimes you will be singing along with a song on the radio and then realize that the words you are singing are completely ridiculous? You know… you think you know the words but they just don’t make any sense in the context of the song? For example, when I was little I thought he had the “whole world in his pants” rather than in his hands.

Sarah once told me that “everyone has toothpaste down the deep end.” Oops! I think she meant that “every one has to face down the demons.” (Third Eye Blind – Jumper)

So this weekend Sarah and I were being silly and singing the theme song to “Fresh Prince.” This is what came out of my wife’s mouth… “In West Philadelphia, born and raised, on the playground is where I spend most of my days, chillin out maxin relaxin all cool and all shootin some meatball outside of the school.”

Shootin some meatball… Love it.

    That’s pretty classic! I spent the first 24 years of my life singing the chorus to Mrs. Robinson as “put it in your pants or in your cupcakes” instead of “put it in your pantry with your cupcakes,” but when my hubby corrected me, I had only to remind him that he had been singing Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” as “gently spoken yesterday” instead of “Jeremy spoke in class today.” Nice. Thanks for sharing!

    Ha. Stephen is really bad. “White and dirty” instead of “Ridin’ dirty”. I used to love hearing my dad try to sing Semi-Charmed Life. Awesome.

    Rebecca & Chelsea – love those! It’s good to know I’m not the only cool kid botching the lyrics to songs.

    Re: Chelsea’s comment—I still don’t know all the words to Semi-Charmed Life, and I’ve been listening to it for well over 10 years now. I’m proud to say, however, that I do know all of the words to “End of the World as We Know It” and that hubby can sing the whole crazy-fast part of “Hook” by Blues Traveler. That’s something, right?
