"She's got a smile and it means to me/Haha. What did you say? *turns down the car stereo* Can you repeat that? How do you NOT know the words to this song? Nevermind the song, you don't even know the words to the first stanza? Are you a foreign exchange student? Were you raised by wolves?
Reminds me of uh huh uh huh/
Where every uh huh uh huh/
Bright blue SKY (sky, sky)"
I mean I could understand being foggy about the words to "Paradise City." Axl gets kinda garbled in that low register. No one knows the words; that's ok. But drawing a blank to the beginning of "Sweet Child O' Mine?" That's fucktarded!
What's that? You're not a big lyric guy? Well, I'm an intense "lyric girl," to use your terminology. I look up lyrics online to make sure that I know what the hell I'm singing along to. I'm still baffled at the lyrics to Animal Collective's song "My Girls": "I don't mean to seem like I/ Care about material things/ Like a social status." Social status IS NOT A MATERIAL THING! Are they on drugs? Wait, don't answer that. They are totally on drugs. There's no other excuse for such a lazy lyric. Seriously, I want to give that lyric the finger.
No, I won't settle down. I have strong opinions about song lyrics, their logic and the subsequent memorization of them. That's just how I roll.
