More Misheard Lyrics

In my opinion, the "Yellow Ledbetter" misheard lyrics video works because there's no official lyric sheet for the song, and therefore no one really knows what the words actually are. I know that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was satirized more than 16 years ago of its then-perceived incoherent vocals (e.g., Weird Al's parody), but being a big Nirvana fan for the greater part of 14 years (and being aware of them for 16), I am not amused by the new Youtube videos satirizing the lyrics...I know the lyrics too well. It's the same with Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze"...I know the lyrics too well to really laugh at "'scuse me while I this guy."

Or could it be those videos lack some sort of comedic imagery and timing? I'll leave that for the Youtube haters (there are plenty).

Anyway, so here's a Christina Aguilera song, one that I have never heard until I watched this video. Funny.

And this is an AFI song, which I've heard for many years now...but since I'm not a big AFI fan, I have no idea what the actual lyrics this could be them for all I know (but I know they're not).
