I remember back in the 80s having a girlfriend singing along to Lunatic Fringe, saying "Luna take reds"...then she asked if I knew who this luna person was.

This one is really embarrassing because as a kid, I had no idea what one of the words I was singing meant and just always sang it that way. The song is Blinded By The Light by Manfred Mann's Earth Band. I thought the lyrics were:

...blinded by the lights
Wrapped up like a douche another brother in the night

The actual lyrics are:

...blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night

What's so embarrassing is not that I didn't know what douche meant but that I asked my older brother what a douche was. He got a weird look on his face and responded, "Go ask Mom."

Do not be embarrassed plumies. I would be willing to bet that more people than not thought the same thing and I bet more than one had the same experience as you

plumies I thought the same thing, although I knew what a douche was I was too embarrassed to sing it out loud

I had to look up the lyrics to that song to get the words right.
