So I know I’m not the only one who cannot always understand singers when they are singing their song lyrics. I especially have a tough time understanding Zakk Wylde. There is quite a list of songs that have Sparklebumps Translations- in other words, words I think they are singing. I took this opportunity to look up the actual song lyrics to some songs, but in all honesty, I think my lyrics are better….
1.The Blessed Hell Ride by Black Label Society
Sparklebump’s Translation: “One more drink, the dead break down and then another one.”
Actual Lyrics: “One more drink, a nervous breakdown, and then another war.”
I’ll take another drink. No war please.
2. Helter Skelter by Motley Crue
Sparklebump’s Translation: “I told my dog, “Why they love you?” and “I’m cumming down back but don’t let me brain you.”
Actual Lyrics: “Do you, don’t you want me to love you” and “I’m coming down fast but don’t let me break you.”
3. Sweet Little Sister by Skid Row
Sparklebump’s Translation: “She got her ass in a crooked dress, smiling like an alligator. We got her headlights in the back of my car, tights lips now but six ship later.”
Actual Lyrics: “She’s got her hands in the cookie jar, Smiling like an alligator, Making headlines in the back of my car Tight lipped now but she’ll sink ships later ”
4. Walking on Broken Glass by Annie Lennox
Sparklebump’s Translation: “Since you went down on me, my whole life is trashed.”
Actual Lyrics: “Since you moved out on me, my whole life has crashed.”
I’m gonna say the guy had a magical tongue.
5. Cream by Prince
Sparklebump’s Translation: “This is it, it’s time for you to gallop and wire.” and “Look up in the air! It’s you tongue!”
Actual Lyrics: “This is it, it’s time for you to go to the wire” and “Look up in the air, it’s your guitar.”
6. Wild Side by Motley Crue
Sparklebump’s Translation: “I carry my crucifix under my bath dress”
Actual Lyrics:”I carry my crucifix under my deathlist.”
7. Counterfeit God by Black Label Society
Sparklebump’s Translation: “In this world of hat and face,” and “we edit your will and then your seed.”
Actual Lyrics: “In this world when at it’s best” and “Hand over your will and then you’ll see.”
Sorry, there will have to be a second installment of this, because my MP3 Player is short 400 songs today. XOXO
P.S. I never said my lyrics made sense….

‘Scuse me while I kiss this guy.
Is he cute?
Helter Skelter is a very good psychological movie if you analyze the mind of a genius mad cult leader and murderer. And I love Skid Row!!!!! I like your lyrics a ton more though. =)
But I DO carry my crucifix under my bath dress.
As Do I.
Funny! I remember a song by Simple Minds a few years back called ‘Alive and Kicking.’ I always thought the chorus sounded like ‘I like fried chicken.’
Maybe the Beatles original version of “Helter Skelter” is easier to understand.
Yes, I would guess so.
Hilarious! I have a ton of these myself. I’ve stopped looking up lyrics and just go with mine!
