Caveat: God’s Alive! Run, Bob Dylan

One of the worst cases of mis-heard lyrics I've ever experienced was with this song by Korn called "Got the Life." I love the song, though it's a bit dark and depressing, I suppose. The song's main chorus and title are the words "Got the life." I always heard this as "God's Alive," which – given the atmospherics of the song, as well as rest of the oeuvre of the boys from Bakersfield – I assumed was meant ironically in some way. Further, there's a line which is just nonsense: "Dance with me / Rumbiddieboo." I always heard it as "Dance with me / Run, Bob Dylan." 

Personally, I prefer the way I heard the song to the way it actually goes, so even after learning the correct lyrics, I still imagine my own personal version when I hear the song:

"God's Alive! Run, Bob Dylan." 

What I'm listening to right now.

Korn, "Got The Life."

Lyrics.

Hate, something, sometime, someway,
something kick on the front floor.
Mine? Something, inside.
I'll never ever follow.
So give.. me.. some.. thing.. that.. is.. for.. real.
I'll never ever follow.
Get your boogie on…
Hate, something, someway, each day, feeling ripped off again.
Why? This shit inside.
Now everyone will follow.
So give.. me.. noth.. ing.. just.. feel.
And now this shit will follow.
God thinks we will never see the light, who wants to see?
God told me, I've already got the life, oh I see…
God thinks we will never see the light, who wants to see?
God told me, I've already got the life, oh I say…
Oh, I see
Each day I can feel it swallow, inside something they took from me.
I don't feel your deathly ways.
Each day i feel so hollow, inside I was beating me,
You will never see, so come dance with me.
Dance with me
Rumbiddieboo
Rum bum dee dum dee bum diddie doo
ME!
God thinks we will never see the light, who wants to see?
God told me, I've already got the life, oh I see…
God thinks we will never see the light, who wants to see?
God told me, I've already got the life, oh I say…
Got the life.
Got… the… life.
