Okay, y’all. Today I’m doing some weeknight blogging to link up with Denise at Sunny Days for a HILARIOUS party.
The topic for My Truth Monday this week? Lyrics that you thought you knew, but you didn’t!
I was born in the 80s, and grew up in the 90s, but the first songs I knew were the classic rock that my parents always listened to…Moody Blues, Led Zeppelin. You get the idea. The Steve Miller Band has a song called “Big Old Jet Airliner”.
I mean, really, I can’t even explain that. Big Old Chad a light on?! What does that even mean?! I challenge you to listen to that song though and NOT hear Big Old Chad had a light on. Even now, I can still hear it.
And, of course, this Jimmy Buffet classic.
I mean, really, I knew the song was called Fins. I don’t know why I thought they said Dance to the left, Dance to the right. BUT if we’re being 100% honest I actually didn’t even realize the true lyrics until about 2 years ago. It was the year my husband and I were engaged and we were driving home for Christmas, listening to Jimmy Buffet’s greatest hits and Fins came on and I was singing and dancing (as I usually do) to that song and as soon as I wailed “you gotta dance to the left, dance to the right” the hubs was like “uh, say what?! It’s FINS to the left, FINS to the right”. That’s a real thing that happened in my life. (Awkward face)
Alright, y’all. I hope my idiocy has lightened your Monday a bit. Have a great week!
