When listening to music in our lives it's quite common to get song lyrics stuck in our heads. On rare occasions however, we mishear a word or just gloss over it entirely to revel in the instrumental bliss. So what is that one song that you found out later you had the wrong lyrics in your head and made you feel completely embarrassed?
It's going to be hard to top mine. When I first heard the song Big Poppa by Notorious B.I.G. I thought he was saying, "I love it when you called me David Aqua." I have no clue why I thought I was hearing that. Maybe the audio mix was messed up or maybe I was just too young to perceive the innuendo at play but I later found out he was saying "Big Poppa." You know, the name of the song! To this day I ask myself, "Who the hell is David Aqua? Does he enjoy surfing or water sports? Does he work for a water delivery service or at a carwash? Is he Aquaman's brother?" Questions I may never find answers to.
I can think of a few other times that I've gotten lyrics wrong but that was the one time I felt completely mortified. Rather than mock me with your smarmy internetness, I challenge you to come up with something even more embarrassing to surpass me.
