Safety Dance, Drop Your Pants #fb

I am the king of massacring lyrics. I don't hear them right, and then I put funny ones in the place  of the right ones. Here is an recording of my wife (Colleen and I talking about how the lyric massacring began, and how we re-wrote Safety Dance

Link to audio here:

Safety Dance re-written by Jeff and Colleen Roney

Drop your pants if you want to
Expose your bare behind
'Cause your friends got pants and if they don't then
They'll be no friends of mine
I say, hide your pants where you want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And drop your pants


How do you hear this song now? Do you have other songs you rewrite lyrics too?

haha, I'm probably going to think of that when I hear that song now!

I'm famous in our household for "mis-hearing" words in songs and just assuming that's what they really are! :)

Hey, great blog, love your humor! And I am a lyrics massacre specialist also! It all started many years ago with the Bee Gees "Bald Headed Woman".....

Definately a guy thing. My husband sings along - but he only knows every fourth word. We laugh - he doesn't care! Thanks for stopping by and following - I'm now doing the same. I'd hate to miss something fun!

I am notorious for making up lyrics to songs. I like your version of Saftey Dance much better than the orginal!

OMG! Me and the pixies are rolling on the floor laughing! I guess i am having a very silly day. I just finished leaving a comment for a Pink Saturday poster who displayed her blown glass balls (ornaments) but she called them balls, and like- what do you say?? I really like your pink ____? Your pink ___ are magnificent? My sixth grade mind completely took over and I couldn't stop laughing. She said she had some blue ones as well... where do you go with that?
I know where, straight to the gutter!
So your blog was the next one I read after hers and those song lyrics are too funny! You and your wife must have a blast. BTW, my husband's birthday is on 9/11, and with a date like that I am sure there's no need for a post-it!
Sparkly giggles,
Tobi and the pixies
PS congratulations, you are the first man to follow my blog- I was under the impression that men stayed as far away from fairies as they could!

One small note on wrong lyrics- for many years I sang a song this way

I'm not talking bout my linens
and I don't want to change your life
but there's a warm wind blowin
the stars are out
and I'd really love to see you tonight

I always wondered why linens were part of a love song
