#TBT to Incorrectly Guessing Song Lyrics

Remember when we would hear a great song on the radio, but we weren’t sure what the words to that one line were? We either had to find the cassette insert…or just guess.

Today for “Throwback Thursday,” we hark back to hair bands, am/fm radio, and boom boxes (circa the early 1980s).

Did you ever belt out “rockin the cat box,” or perhaps “wrapped up like a douche,” or maybe “real moose custard”?

Me neither, but as sure as Kilamanjaro rises like a leopress above the Serengeti, I totally butchered Toto. There was nothing that a hundred men on Mars could ever do. We were well into the 21st century before I found out what the words to that song actually are.

It didn’t matter. We were having fun.

It kind of make me wonder, though, how much of what I think I know now is right, or whether it’s just my impression of what I “think” I’ve heard? Hmm…
