    Here's another one, from a song surely in anyone's heinous top-10 of cover-band numbers:

    PLAY THAT FUNKY MUSIC (first verse): "Hey, once I was a [COLOR="red"]boogie singer

      Here's an interesting one that I didn't even know was a controversy (pun intended) until recently.

      Like most people probably, I always assumed Prince was singing "we can **************** until the dawn" in Erotic City. We were messing around with this song awhile back and one of the girls in my band insisted that, no, he's singing "FUNK until the dawn". I'm like, WTF, you're nuts. EVERYONE knows the lyric to that song!

      I go look online, and it turns this is something that has been debated for years.

      So which is it?

          My guess is that like many songs, there are two versions, depending on the audience. "Tear the roof off the mothersucker." Yeah, right!

              Actually, no, and that's why this one is interesting. There's only the one version. And nobody agreeing on what he actually sang.

              According to the wiki-page about the song, the argument was made that he said 'funk' so that it could get some radio play. I don't recall ever actually hearing it on the radio, although I do remember hearing it once over the speakers inside a mall clothing store once and thinking that was quite odd in 1983...

                I don't mean two recorded versions. There are the "real" lyrics and the ones the artists use on the record to get air play. Some songs do have "live" released recordings, but in any case, often the "real" lyrics are obvious, even though you may never have heard them.

                  Ahh, gotcha. Well, I'm still sticking with the side who says he sang the "real" lyrics in this case.

                    Hell, even if I didn't know the correct word I always sang the syllables I heard so it sounded right.

                        If you're going to try and figure out the lyrics to Yellow Ledbetter I suggest doing it with a mouth full of oatmeal.

                              Had we ever officially recorded one of those songs, though, I almost certainly would have insisted we call up whoever-it-is-you-gotta-call-up (you have to get the permission to record and release the song anyway) and make sure we had the right words


                              It would be some publishing company, and I'd be shocked if they knew or cared about anything but "Here's where to send the check."

                                This can be said not only of words and chords but sheet music and definitely guitar tabs.


                                Lord if I had a nickle for all of the awfully innacurate tabs I have seen. And I don't even use the damn things, usually comes up when somebody is playing something strange and they hand over what they downloaded and I just
                                Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream.

                                The show, no matter how retarded, must go on. This is why musicians drink so much, alcohol helps them cope with facts by enveloping their brains and auditory senses in a haze of thickly applied B.S.
