-- Galaxy Balls --


Mishearing of "Wanna Go Walking," by Steve Coles

"I have a genuine misheard (but knew it was wrong right away) BC lyric that has given me a chuckle everytime that I listen to "Wanna Go Walking". The line that goes "got a hunger that sprawls like this galaxy" I used to hear as "got hundred inch balls like this galaxy". Like I said, I knew that was not right but that was the way that I heard until I finally got out the lyric sheet to see what it really was. Of course, that's the way I still think of it because it's so amusing. I mean, sure, hundred inch balls are big and all, but we're talking about the galaxy here, fer crying-out-load."
