Try to top this one.

Remember the old rap song Deep Cover with Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg?
Well there's one line that goes

"Tonight's the night like Betty White
and I'm chillin'"

Okay it's supposed to be Betty Wright (an old R&B singer) but I prefer my Betty White version.

Who would have guessed Snoop was a Golden Girls fan?
I bet he would gather around the TV with his homies every week to watch.
That show must have been funny as hell after a few fat blunts!

Blinded by the light
Reved up like a douche...

This is too funny. I always sung it "Revved up like a douche... in the middle of the night"

Apparently the real lyrics are:
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night

Oh
I want a new truck, one that won't make me sick
One that won't make me crash my car
Or make me feel feet, feet, feet thick
I want a new truck, one that won't hurt my head
One that won't make my mouth too dry
Or make my eyes too red

Hey, I was a kid. Drugs were bad, trucks were cool. I never could have thought at the time that someone would actually sing about wanting a new drug with Nancy's Just Say No campaign airing on TV all the time in the 80s.

When I was a kid and whenever I heard the Paul McCartney and Wings song "Band on the run", I would always think that they were singing "Van on the run" during the choruses.. :lol:

I finally learned the right lyrics but I always sing as revved up like a douche because the mental image I get from it is too funny!

The worse one I could never understand was an oldie “somebody to love” by Jefferson Airplane.
The actual lyric goes...
“When the truth is found to be lies”
But I could only make it out as
When the turkey’s down to be eyes
Now I knew that wasn’t right but that was the only way I could make it out!
