    Okay, a thread to post WHAT WE THOUGHT was the right lyrics in a song only to find out we were sooo wrong. We've all done it. So, post the lyics you thought were right... only to be wrong & then the correct lyrics after along with the artist, group & song's name. This should be fu

    Eminence Front by Pete Townshend:

    Incorrect Lyrics:

    "The sun shines
    And people forget
    The spray flies as the speedboat glides
    And people forget
    Forget they're hiding
    The girs smile
    And people forget
    The snow packs as the skier tracks
    And people forget
    Forget they're hiding
    While living in a swamp
    Living in a swamp
    Living in a awamp, look out
    Living in a swamp, living in a swamp
    Living in a swamp, living in a swamp, look out
    Living in a swamp, living in a swamp
    Come & join the party, won't you...
    Come & join the party, won't you...
    Come & join the party, won't you...
    Come & join the party, won't you
    Livin' in a swamp."





    Correct Lyrics:

    "The sun shines
    And people forget
    The spray flies as the speedboat glides
    And people forget
    Forget they're hiding
    The girls smile
    And people forget
    The snow packs as the skier tracks
    And people forget
    Forget they're hiding
    Behind an Eminence Front
    Eminence Front
    Eminence Front, it's a put on
    Eminence Front, Eminence Front
    Eminence Front, Eminence Front, it's a put on
    Eminence Front, Eminence Front

    Come & join the party, dressed to kill
    Come & join the party, dressed to kill
    Come & join the party, dressed to kill
    Come & join the party, dressed to kill
    It's an Eminence Front."

    What the hell is an eminence front? I like the swamp lyrics better. I

    remember an interview where with an artist, Dave Grohl I believe, who said that he didn't like to list lyrics inside his album cover because sometimes when fans would misunderstand what he was singing they would actually come up with better lyrics and he wanted to leave himself open to stealing them. I'm sure he was joking because he's a pretty funny guy, but he may have been on to something!
