Tragically Misheard Lyrics: Twenty-Something Tuesday

We all have that friend—hell, we’ve all been that friend—who doesn’t know the correct lyrics to practically anything. You’re driving down the road, rocking out to the radio, when you realize the words you thought you were hearing most definitely weren’t. Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. We’ll keep singing ’em regardless… no matter how tragic they sound.

  • I thought “I love bad bitches that’s my fucking problem” was “My long haired bitches that’s my fucking problem” …. I also thought “bands-a-make her dance” was “dance-and-make her dance” … IDK I’m pathetic it’s fine.
