Sometimes you go years and years singing a favorite song, not even bothering to really listen to the lyrics or think about what you are singing. And one day, you will have a moment of clarity, maybe in your car in the 7-11 parking lot, singing out loud with the window open, when you'll realize just how incredibly stupid a lyric "do you take sugar, one lump or two" is.

got video?

we'd pay...oh yes.

I remember driving in my car in high school with a couple of friends when that song came on the radio. One of my friends (a future Ivy Leaguer) sang along in all seriousness "Awesome Sugar Honey Babes."

What song is that lyric from?

Look at what you have done to this rock and roll clown.

Oh. Oh my god, Kevin. Only, like, the best song EVER! "Pour Some Sugar On Me" from the album Hysteria by Def Leppard. Major Def Leppard fan...

In the field of lyric trivia...

Poor little darling,
With a chip out of your heart,
It's like acting in a movie,
When you've got the wrong part.

Getting your kicks in another girl's bed,
And it was only last Tuesday,
Oh,
they found you in the subway, dead.

Elton John, All the Girls Love Alice (hot), Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Oh. I could never make out all the lyrics to that. I just made up my own to fit the song.

Here's the definitive question regarding 'Pour Some Sugar On Me.':

In the middle where they're doing that "So hot, sticky sweet" thing, do they say the word saccharin? It sounds like they do. I've never wanted to look because I'm afraid my head will explode if that is indeed what they are saying.

My older sister blew out my car speakers with that freaking song.

You got the peaches, I got the cream
Sweet to taste saccharine
'Cos I'm hot, so hot, sticky sweet
From my head, my head, to my feet

They do, indeed, say saccharine with a looong REEEN followin' that sackcar, IMO

My mom did that with Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. She said she loved it. Played it all the time in her office while she worked. Then one day she heard it while i was driving. SHE turned up the volume dn for the first time ever listened to tehy lyrics. She looked at me agast and said "That is the worst song, morally, that i have ever heard." We still get a good laugh out of it.
