The other good one from last time was 'it's ok thinking me and all my friends are just racists...' - uhh, why?! And someone had 'you could do much better than some skinny half-caste English country singer'.

More recently, and less hilariously, I realised it's "put our art where our mouths are', not 'put our hearts where our mouths are', which I had previously thought wasn't quite clever enough to make it into that song...[/b]

Snap! Gotta love homophones. (That phrase could easily be misheard, itself.) My interpretation of the pseudolyrics did work, though, in an admittedly strange way.

(It may be considered very bad form to mention The Past but...
I used to enjoy singing the words: "Throwing out these chords turned down to me...".)

At the risk of using that saying, i genuinely laughed out loud at that. Brilliant.

Also love the idea of an invisible llama :lol:

We sing songs about our friends in e minor

Or is it "who you might know"

Or at that, does it change through out the song? I can never make it out! :D
I'd rather be the one who loves than to be loved and never even know.

I always hear the technical faeces thing. Kind of disgusting.

Given the context of the lyrics around it, it's not that difficult to figure out. Love songs in C, politics in G, songs about our friends....

One of my friends almost ruined The Ballad of Me and My Friends for me by pointing out that it sounds very much like he sings,

"Here's to Reagan, and here's to Margaret." Heart stopped for a second there.
