I was researching for a new thread, saw a recommended video about a drummer and clicked it.. They were playing "Sharp Dressed Man" by ZZ Top and the guy sang:

"..'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man"


I figured he was singing it that way to avoid copyright issues - but I looked it up to be sure.

And sure enough, the lyrics have changed - it sounds completely foreign now (0:38):
The lyrics are now:

Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am goin' to
Silk suit, black tie,
I don't need a reason why
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man

Gold watch, diamond ring,
I ain't missin' not a single thing
Cufflinks, stick pin,
When I step out I'm gonna do you in
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man

Top coat, top hat,
And I don't worry 'cause my wallet's fat
Black shades, white gloves,
Lookin' sharp lookin' for love
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man
..and they always have been.


I looked up misheard lyrics too (obviously).

I figured I'd find it here: kissthisguy.com/women-go-crazy-bout-a-shot-glass-man-zz-misheard-37228.htm ..and I did... kind of. They still say "Women go crazy" - the misheard lyric is "'bout a shot glass man". lol

Then I found www.amiright.com/misheard/artist/zztop.shtml ..pretty sure most of these are jokes.. eg:

Misheard Lyrics:
'Cause women go crazy 'bout a shirtless man.
Original Lyrics:
'Cause ev'ry girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.
To me, all of those are grade school level humor - not my thing.


Of course I don't think this is a misheard lyric - "women go crazy" doesn't sound anything like "every girl crazy" - and it stands out big time. I think it was "women go crazy" before what ever happened happened.


Residue:



So I understand if you think it's a misheard lyric, please understand I don't.

Does anyone else remember "Women go crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man"?

Odd, in my timeline it was sung by a group dressed as a cop, cowboy, construction worker, a leather & stud biker, and American Indian, and the line was "...every guy's crazy bout a sharp dressed man..."

That is strange.............

I think it was "women go crazy" before what ever happened happened.

It wasn’t, but why let a little thing like “huh...I heard it wrong I guess” override your sense of “no, this is definitely some sort of alternate universe and/or timeline” notion. Guess some folks find it easier to think they’ve unraveled some life altering mystery that nobody else knows than it is to admit they got something wrong.

I have heard this song hundreds of times. It's always been 'every girl crazy'.

I don't know if you've done a thread on Ed McMahon, but this is the one that i can't believe!


Ed McMahon never worked for Publishers Clearing House. He was a spokesman for American Family Publishers. McMahon never left the studio to ambush families, and he never held a giant check.

www.forbes.com...

I remember Publishers Clearing House. I would have bet on it. Strange, how word association can effect memory.

Now you've done it. You're going to get a lecture on how you have no clue how the Mandela Effect works and how everything you claim just reinforces his point. I personally think the OP is in his own Mandela universe, where curiously the Mandela masters focus exclusively on changing the lyrics of universally popular songs. For what purpose is anyone's guess.

Well, it's always been "every girl's crazy bout a..." for me. It even sounds better in the lyrical sense than "woman." There could be a live version using "woman" or something... who knows.

But then, as I said when this first came up here, if it is valid that some things have changed, discerning mistakes from valid ME's becomes difficult.

One should be very careful and chalk it up to mistakes unless it's a jarring difference and backed by a great many seemingly sane people.

There are certainly better cases for me's.

This? Nahhhhhh

With respect and a politeness.
