Best mis-heard cable lyric.
« on: August 09, 2012, 12:42:03 AM »
Everyone know Cable lyrics are some times tricky to work out. Looking at everyone trying to crack each songs code is good fun. So what's the best mis-heard Cable lyric everyone's workout?

The one song that i've noticed all my friends seem to get wrong is HexagonEye, this is mainly weird as the clue is kind of in the title for the song. I have genuinely lost count of how many people think the lyrics are 'i spy flies with my super fly guys, looking out for me with your fly guys' (obviously they are idiots)

Brothers and Sisters - There's too much in lasagne.

Oubliette - F***ing eat your face. (Or 'in your face'.)

Once I've heard something wrong I find it hard to not hear it again!  :-[

The problem with Cable lyrics is that what I think I've misheard could well be the actual lyrics!  But anyways, on I'm Always Right I hear:

"Safestyle Windows but with numbers"

Could it be that the Cable guys wrote a song about getting new double glazing?  It's certainly possible...

Hello hello...just registered (possibly just to say) - 'Take a badger for a walk' - dead wood for green
I may post again someday, massive cable fan but missed it all first time round on accounts of being about 10!

welcome along!  how did you discover cable, through an older relative?

always good to know younger people might still discover the cable goodness.

Not actually sure to be honest- found an mp3 of Ultra Violet on my computer a couple of years ago, thought it worth investigating further. did not regret that decision! Still though, 15 minutes of their set from halfway up the balcony at the Coronet only left me wanting more, so I'll be at the Garage for sure. Hoping for more of this in the future!

Hey,

Does anyone have the lyrics to obliette? since the cable gigs it's cemented in my head, would be great to actually have the right lyrics when i'm singing in the shower, and rocking out at the Garage this Sat

Cheers

Kev

Oubliette has the perhaps the most impenetrable lyrics of any cable song. In fact the only lines i know in that song are "concrete in your veins" and "change your mind for the very last time, salt water reptile dancing with a friend of mine" I seem to recall some forum members had a bash at it in the lyrics section if that helps
