You say potato, and I say po-tah-to

Most people who know me, also know that I have the tendency to always get my song lyrics mixed up, or worse still, colossally wrong.

Case in point. Today, after having a dinner of ramen followed by a slice of Cedele's Chocolate Almond cake (my financial adviser got very worried when I told her I actually have a monthly budget for cake), I was happily humming a tune while waiting for the train home.

Actually to be more exact, I was happily chiming away Crowded House's Weather With You.

Me (melodiously): "There's a small boat man in China, he's going nowhere on the mantelpiece..."
D: "Omigod, it's 'there's a small boat made of China...' bwahahahahaha!"
Me: "Erk!"

Other famous Colossal Camel Gross Mis-interpretation of Song Lyrics:

1. Whitney Houston's One Moment in Time - Instead of "Give me one moment in time, when I'm racing with destiny", yours truly belted out one time in secondary school, "Give me one moment in time, when I'm shaking with desperate need!"

2. The Cranberries' Ode to My Father - Instead of "Unhappiness, was when I was young and we didn't give a damn" became "Unhappiness, was when I was young and we did it again and again!"

All this must mean something. Whatever it is, it's rather worrying. Maybe all that cake is doing something to me...
