    Random song lyrics

    Listening to Pandora while winding down the day and Sleepyhead by Passion Pit comes on with the lyrics "Please unicorn eat tacos with me." Got me wondering, could that possibly be the most random song lyric this side of Beck?

    Whee areyou getting those lyrics from?

    Here are the real lyrics to the whole song:


    And everything is going to the beat
    And everything is going to the beat
    And everything is going

    And you said
    It was like fire around the brim
    Burning solid
    Burning thin the burning rim
    Like stars burning holes right through the dark
    Flicking fire like saltwater into my eyes
    You were one inch from the edge of this bed
    I drag you back a sleepyhead, sleepyhead

    They couldn't think of something to say the day you burst
    With all their lions and all their might and all their thirst
    They crowd your bedroom like some thoughts wearing thin
    Against the walls against your rules against your skin
    My beard grew down to the floor and out through the doors
    Of your eyes but go in disguise like a sleepyhead, sleepyhead

    Go ahead

    Well done. One of my favorite songs.

    If you can translate the lyrics to the Flys - Got you where I want you, when they're rapping at the end I'd appreciate it.

    Re: Random song lyrics

    You were the sweetest thing that I ever knew
    But I don't care for sugar, honey if I can't have you
    Since you've abandoned me
    My whole life has crashed
    Won't you pick the pieces up
    'Cause it feels just like I'm walking on broken glass

    Love me some Annie Lennox


    Oh wait...I thought you meant just post a random songs lyrics...damn, I failed. Let me get back to you on this one.

    "Pompitous"- Steve Miller Band. Not only random, invented.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Random song lyrics

    I'm not personally a fan of this song, but I always found it funny that at the 37 second mark he says "I see inside the salad bar". Makes me hungry every time.

    Sleepyhead- Passion Pit Lyrics - YouTube

    Gotcha, I figured it out.

    It is a sample from a Celtic folk song. Óró Mo Bháidín by Mary O'Hara.
    It's tough to figure out, becuase it's not in english.

    The section in the beginning of the song is as follows:

    ‘S go hOíche Fhéil’ Eoin ní thiocfaidh mé aniar

    translates to:
    And I won't come back until St. John's Night

    The same song is sampled at the end of the song where it sounds like Aaaah aaaahh....

    Óró mo churaichín ó!

    translates to:
    Oh, my little currach o! (A currach is a boat)


    It's a pretty song played on a harp. Some of the tune is in Sleepyhead as well.



    I had to look this up, because I've seen Passion Pit in concert (they were extremely good) and not once did I ever hear anything about tacos.







    I like tacos...

    Those definitely aren't the words, but it does sound like that. I think you just hijacked this thread and turned it into "Best misheard lyrics". I remember someone singing "soup inside a bun" to Suicide Blonde by INXS.

    Yeah sorry, I kind of did. But it didn't seem like the thread was really going anywhere anyway. Just doing my best to keep you on the recent threads page!

    By the way, I fully recomend the full Passion Pit album, Manners to anyone. It is a really good album from start to finish.

    No apologies, you definitely got a chuckle out of me, and it was totally random.

    Re: Random song lyrics

    My buddies and I use to joke that all Deftones songs were written totally random. I know, they are probably suppose to be deep and meaningful, but it has to atleast resemble SOMETHING!


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.
