Some song lyrics misheard over the cafe hubbub…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s wrinkled old black and white snapshot if the one of me on a 1954 BSA M21 motorcycle with James Dean sitting reading a newspaper in the sidecar.

‘Call out the cod comin’ babe!’
‘Loud Colin, loud Colin, oh, loud Colin…’
‘Lovin’ loaf, you got coal, that’s what you got!’
‘Too much tape! Is too fall apart girl.’
‘Hold me this away, but laughing close.’
‘Space naps are cold… My heart…’
‘On and on and, on and on and, on…’
‘Slip!… I know your wooden ways!…’
‘It is longest in the neck now girl.’
‘Fake me every day, say place, say place.’
‘Now I’m in love like a night-guard…’
‘You, me, the world we knew new…’
‘Oh, yesterday, wet nips are go!’
‘Soda yew, on the roof, hey hey hey!…’
‘A crawling fool – mm-mm, singing singing.’
‘Dark dosey, oh, you dream my heart…’
‘Snookered, now, butter party – and my phone gone…’
‘So kind, show me your stick-out now.’
‘Slowly you everything – you hand me a tray satisfied.’
‘So you wanna emotion unnatural?’
‘I didn’t for a little while – oh, dumb bombs heading…’
‘Not crow baby, just a half-finished straw…’
‘Satan don’t flatter me, where my heart now?…’

  1. I liked the “space naps are cold” I’m pretty sure they would be! And the crow baby with the half finished straw brings to mind a little bird being taught the complexity of nest building!

    Loving the misheard song lyrics… I always misconstrued “give me a higher love” for “give me an iron lung”

  3. Dana Doran says:

    “On and on on and on on and on”……is un-misheard and really old. I really never understood the lyrics to that song….”puts on Sinatra and starts to cry.” Why would someone cry when hearing Sinatra?

    • Dave Whatt says:

      So Dana, is that really in a song? I suppose it must be, I can’t have imagined it, can I?…
      A Sinatra song perhaps? I can’t say I’m familiar with the chap’s work, although people do seem to like him…

  4. Dana Doran says:

    Oh for goodness sake….and the name of the song is (wait for it……..) “On and On!” blah blah blah Like from the 70’s, so that might explain a lot.
