 'I don't wanna be your pizza burning' --The Rolling Stones


  1. I get knocked down, but I get up again, jullie hebben nog niet betaald! (= you haven't payed yet, in Dutch)
    I mean, those are the original lyrics, right? (◠‿◠)

  2. I'm getting "Hatten รคr din" flashbacks again.

    For those of you who are unfamiliar, back in 2000 someone put Swedish "subtitles" over a Lebanese Arabic song. They turned a love song into a silly song about passing around a hat.

  3. i'm still doing it ( and live in a english country now, I thought it would pass :D )

  4. "We don't need no education. We don't need no thought control. No dogs or cats are in the classroom. Teacher, leave them kids alone..."
    "We've got to hold on, to what we've got. It does not make a difference if we're naked or not..."
    "Papadum peach, I'm in trouble deep. Papadum peach, I've been losing sleep..."

  5. "(You make me feel like) a mature old woman"
