Know Your Lyrics!

I have never really liked Macy Gray since her debut many years ago. "I Try" was the first song I listened to in the radio and it was the "it" song. Everybody knew the lyrics and everywhere I go, they surely will be playing the song. I admit, her hair did scare the crap out of me. It is a death trap for small creatures that unfortunately fallen into her hair.

But her hair was not the reason I disliked her. I did not know why I disliked her till a few days ago when Princes Pei Pei played the song. Then this verse came up.

I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Little did I know, the line "My world crumbles when you are not near" is the correct line and all these while, I have been hearing it as "I wore goggles when you are not here"... At that moment, I knew why I disliked the song because "I wore goggles when you are not here" did not made any sense in the entire song and that really bugged me whenever I listened to the song.

You can tell that everyone had a good laugh when I tried to correct that line to Princess Pei Pei.

You know you love me.

You know, she's supposed to wear goggles because she works offshore sometimes, especially when the lover is not near her.

Oh, the scary scary hair! I never liked that song, but I did like "Why didn't you call me"

Good. Now we all need goggles when the other half is not around.

I LOVE Macy Gray, used to sing that particular song out loud (in the comfort of my bathroom of course) after failed crushes/rships (imaginary ones included). U should listen to her latest (ok, it's quite old actually) collaboration with Kaz James http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFeOZcbav9Q
