Butter Rum Do the Jumble

I don't always pay attention to the words of songs on the radio. I don't always pay attention when people are speaking to me directly. I suppose that might explain why I sometimes hear strange things.

You know, the "Did you just say what I think you said?" phenomenon.

And you probably know what I'm talking about here with regards to songs... the "there's a bathroom on the right" thing.

Just to clarify something I thought I heard recently, I wanted to look up the lyrics to Fergie's "London Bridge."

I know. Don't judge me.

Anyhoo, can you believe that I went to at least 10 on-line lyric sites and each had different variations of the words. Apparently everyone hears something else. Why they don't just look it up on the album cover, oh excuse me, I'm dating myself, the cd insert, for the definitive lyrics, is beyond me.

So I'm no closer to figuring it out but that's ok, I can't sing the song out loud anyway because then I'd just have to explain it all to ~K~. And I'm not prepared to do that at this time.

Listen closely to the song and you'll see what I mean.

However, after I gave up the web search I began to read my daily blogs and came across a link to the following video. Coinkydink? You tell me.

Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Butter Rum Do the Jumble"
A completely accurate translation
