    The Alanis Morrisette song - You Oughta Know also has a line that sounds like
    "and the cross eyed bear that you gave to me..."

  4. Hey Lisa post 31 - excellent!

    Thats the one!

    celticchick - I thought it was Glasgow (seemed natural to a Glaswegian!), so what is it then?

    Any abba fans able to advise?
  6. As far as I'm aware it IS Glasgow.
  7. All time classic, thanks to Noel Edmonds:

    Billy Ocean - "Going gets tough, the tough get goin'"


    "Go and get stuffed, the tough get goin'"

    Hester - if I remember correctly you're another Scot, so are we hearing what seems normal to us because we are all Scottish? I'm seeking advice on the wider forum - bound to be an Abba fan out there!

    money for nothing and your chicks for free - always thought it was money for nothing and your chips for free.

    problem solved:

    Super trouper beams are gonna blind me
    But I won?t feel blue
    Like I always do
    ?cause somewhere in the crowd there?s you
    I was sick and tired of everything
    When I called you last night from GLASGOW

    My niece used to have a pretty cool interpretation of the Bare Necessities: Forget about your worries and your stripes.

    I guess at 3 you wouldn't know what strife was but I have always wondered what she thought it was getting at!
  12. I could never understand what the Beegee's found attractive about a "bald headed woman"

    and my youngest daughter was 4 at the height of the Spice Girl craze used to sing
    "Ginger Spice Superstar"
  13. It IS Glasgow -honest! I was answering someone else who thought it was Tesco!

    thought we'd all lost the plot!

    Tesco's in Glasgow then!
  15. A friend of mine thought the lyrics to James Blunt's "Beautiful" went...

    My life is brilliant
    My love is pure
    I saw an angel
    She smiled at me on the subway...

    (It's actually "of that I'm sure" - and there was some confusion as to whether "Adam Sure" was a girl or a boy!!!)
  16. What a brilliant thread- thanks everyone.
    Must add this to my hotlist and up whenever I'm down.

    My own contribution:

    'Steady upon it son'

    misheard for Stereophonic sound in Bomb da Bass
  17. Just remembered another one:
    ( you picked a fine time to leave me Lucille)
    Five *hundred* children and a crop in the field
  18. Thought it was five hundred children and NO crop! Used to get really upset about that!

    Also Must be Love (Madness Version not beatles)- must be blood, blood, blood. Nothing more , nothing less , blood is the best.
    Must have OD ed on 'The Lost Boys' when I was a kid
  19. I've always wondered about the guy who had
    "400 children and the crop in the field..."


    For years I've sang the Specials song as

    "You're much too much, much too young"... others sing "You've done too much!, but I don't think they're right
