Rambling over... not coffee, but a Truly's Hard Seltzer. Pineapple if you must know.... topic: MISHEARD LYRICS (Kenny Rogers - Lucille)





Background you would need to know:  one of our dogs is named Lucy.

About 15 minutes ago I was going to let the dogs 'out' and feed them dinner, and my husband said he would do it and he proceeded to call the dogs but instead of calling the name 'Lucy' he called Lucille. (Which she wouldn't answer to since she's never been called that) but I looked at him and said, "Seriously!?  You know what you just did, don't you?  You put that song in my head!"
"What song?" he asked, "I was thinking of Charlie Brown."
So at the top of my lungs I serenaded my husband...

You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille.
With four hungry children and the crops in the field.
We had some bad times, lived through some sad times,
But this time the hurtin' won't heal.
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille.
And not only did I entertain my husband with my awesome awful rendition of the song, I went on to tell him a little 'backstory' - which I'm prone to do.

When I was really little, this song often played at my grandparents house because my Aunt had a huge crush on Kenny Rogers.  My brother, my cousin and I would always sing along with the song and for years... YEARS.... we thought the lyrics were,

.... with four hundred children and the crops in the field
 I think I sang along with this song for like, ten years, that the poor man was left with 400 children and the crops in the field before I figured out it was 4 hungry children!
