I’m terrible at picking lyrics out. I always get them wrong. I thought the line was “to me you’re like a Roman dictionary*” in Seal’s ‘Kiss From A Rose’ for years. Still, at least I didn’t think Hot Chocolate were saying “I remove umbilicals”. Anyway, check out this video of misheard lyrics in 2012 pop songs made by Pleated-Jeans. It’s pretty funny.
*“To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny, yeah”
