Misheard song lyrics + new Family posts

Hiiiii 🙂 Happy Monday! How’s the day going?

Sunday was so glorious. I started the morning off with an orangetheory class, which was the perfect power mix of plyo and intervals. I’m not sure if I just had a time when I picked weird days to go, because the last two workouts have been particularly awesome. It was sunny and perfect out, so we decided to hit up the farmer’s market after breakfast.

I got a Green Fix smoothie when we got there, which is a mix of various greens (kale, spinach, dandelion greens, parsley), banana, flax, filtered water and apple. It definitely has a very *green* taste to it, but was perfect after a sweaty OTF workout.

Market w the fam

(dress is old from gap –looks like this one is this year’s version- shoes are Ked’s from Nordstrom Rack and Livi’s little romper is from gap. It kind of looks like a little pajama work-suit, and we joked that she looked like she was off to work at the cute factory.)

Livi smelling the flowers

The usual vendors were there, with tons of fresh produce, dairy, meat, fish, handmade goods, flowers, and FOOD.

Produce  1 of 1 2

Market flowers  1 of 1

The Pilot got an Indian platter, and I decided to roll with an acai bowl. It was perfect on a warm day, and I loved that this vendor blended cacao and coconut water with the frozen acai. Definitely going to try that mix at home!

Aacai  1 of 1

We picked up some asparagus, berries, flowers and peanut butter. (The Pacific Beach PB is to diiieeeee forrrr.)

Market finds  1 of 1

This is totally random, but can we talk about misheard song lyrics? Livi LOVES the song “Uptown Funk,” and sings along with it on the radio. It’s beyond adorable, and also hilarious because she hasn’t quite mastered the “n” sound on “funk.” Since it’s on all the time, we hear it a lot, and it was stuck in my head ALL DAY yesterday. But here’s the thing: with how much I hear it, I don’t really know all the words. There’s this one part I always sing in my head: “cooler than a freeze-dried hippie.” 

The REAL words: “Smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy.”

I don’t even know.

Anyone else totally screw up song lyrics? 

Some of my classics:

I’m a rebel by morning. (They used to play it at country bars when I was in college. “Amarillo By Morning.”)

If you ain’t no punk, holler we want FREEDOM. (Real words: “We want prenup,” from “Golddigger”)

But your booty don’t need a spanking. (“But your booty don’t need explaining” from “Talk Dirty to Me”) 


I’m excited to read these haha.

Hope you have a wonderful day!



Check in with today’s workout here!

NEW on the Family page: Some special extra posts will be going up starting this week, if you’d like to check them out! xo

    TSwift’s “gotta long list of ex-lovers” –> I totally thought she said “gotta lotta Starbucks lovers,” which also works. Right?

    • julie @ peant butter fingers on March 30, 2015 at 7:39 am

      definitely thought it said “all the long lost starbucks lovers…” haha!!

      • Linda on March 31, 2015 at 1:00 pm

        I thought it was “all the lonely Starbucks lovers . . . ” Even though I know the real lyrics, I can still hear the wrong ones if I’m not paying attention!

    • Jenna Zoe on March 30, 2015 at 7:58 am

      Oh my gosh ME TOO!! We always joke Starbucks should give her endorsement for it 🙂

      • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:18 am

        I was excited because tom and I met at Starbucks! We’re Starbucks lovers… Haha!

    • Carrie on March 30, 2015 at 8:04 am

      Thank God! I heard that too! “Go ahead you Starbucks lovers!”

    • Bree Sprual on March 30, 2015 at 8:43 am

      Oh my gosh I was just talking about this with one of my co-workers on Saturday! haha

    • Julie on March 30, 2015 at 8:51 am

      I sing “starbucks” but I thought the real words were “star-crossed”… huh. Thanks for letting me know the real words! 🙂

    • mary on March 30, 2015 at 9:33 am

      I heard Starbucks, too, until I finally looked up wth she was saying!

    • Cara on March 30, 2015 at 9:44 am

      I always think it sounds like “stomach lovers” LOL!!!

    • Sandy W. on March 30, 2015 at 9:45 am

      I totally heard Starbucks as well!

      • Sylvia on March 30, 2015 at 10:26 am

        I ONLY hear Starbucks. I am convinced that’s what she’s saying.

      • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:15 am

        I thought those were the words since it came out!

  2. Laurie O on March 30, 2015 at 7:12 am

    Totally thought the same thing about T Swift’s Blank Space! Seriously didn’t know better until reading the above comment ^^^

    My epic misheard lyrics is thinking No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” was “Nosebleed” for an embarrassingly long time.

  3. Lesley on March 30, 2015 at 7:14 am

    We had great weather this weekend, but I’m bummed about Saturday night. I had Arizona winning so my bracket is busted beyond repair. I really want to find a farmer’s market but if there is one in the area, it’s hidden 🙁

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:21 am

      I had them winning it all too 🙁

  4. Sally on March 30, 2015 at 7:16 am

    My mom thought Van Halen’s ‘Panama’ was ‘Cannonball!’ (Like you might scream before jumping into the pool). And she ALWAYS sings along. 😉 She knows the correct lyric now, but it will always be “Cannonball” to us.

  5. RachelG on March 30, 2015 at 7:16 am

    Ummm I totally thought they said freeze dried hippy and never questioned it. Lol! A singing group did a hilarious Passover spoof of it that’s just amazing. 🙂

  6. Brenna on March 30, 2015 at 7:26 am

    “Extra testicle” from Katy Perry’s ET “Extraterrestrial” Close enough.

  7. Elle on March 30, 2015 at 7:33 am

    I’m so anxious for our farmer’s market to open in 3 weeks! I would just love to live somewhere where it was open year-round.

  8. Laura on March 30, 2015 at 7:46 am

    Growing up, my husband thought that Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It” was “Smoosh it.” Early in our relationship we had an awkward/hilarious moment when it came on the radio and at the whisper part, my husband looked over at me and said dead serious: “Smoosh it!” Hahaha. It was awesome.

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:20 am

      It totally sounds like smoosh it!

  9. Erin @ Erin's Inside Job on March 30, 2015 at 7:48 am

    I love the farmer’s markets in CA…so jealous! Looks like a great weekend 🙂

  10. Erin @ Her Heartland Soul on March 30, 2015 at 7:53 am

    EEEK I’m so excited for what those extra special posts going up could be about on the Family page. 😉

    And I can’t wait for the farmers market to start up in Omaha! I love checking out all the fresh, local goods!

  11. Ashley @ A Lady Goes West on March 30, 2015 at 7:54 am

    Her romper is adorable! I’d wear it in adult size! 🙂

  12. Kelly on March 30, 2015 at 7:55 am

    Justin Timerlake’s Mirrors:
    Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of SOAP
    REAL WORDS: With your hand in my hand and a pocket full of SOUL…….

    Oh….:/ it totally sounds like he’s saying soap

    And i’ve been singing it this way since college. Missy Elliot’s Work It.
    If it’s worth it, lemme work it, put your thang down flip it and reverse it…IS YOUR FURRY NIPPLES WET YET.
    I’m not even sure what the real words are, but i think it’s safe to say those are NOT IT…ha!

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:20 am

      Furry nipples! So good

  13. kristin | W [H] A T C H on March 30, 2015 at 7:57 am

    my husband always gets song lyrics wrong. it absolutely cracks me up.

  14. Emily S on March 30, 2015 at 8:01 am

    “you call me green bean” instead of “you can call me queen bee” in Lorde’s Royals. Now my fiance calls me green bean…

    • mary on March 30, 2015 at 9:35 am

      I heard ‘green bean’ first time I heard the song, too.

  15. Chelsea @ TableForOne on March 30, 2015 at 8:06 am

    I always do that with Blank Space too! Also Anna Kendrick has a song called Cups and it says “you’re going to miss me by my talk, oh”. I always think about tacos when she sings it. Just listen. You will never be able to sing it without thinking about it. I do that with a Sara Bareilles song “I Choose You”. It sounds like she is sneezing and saying Achooo….another one that I can’t listen to without thinking that.

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:19 am

      I totally think it sounds like taco too.. Which seemed inappropriate haha

  16. Erin on March 30, 2015 at 8:18 am

    I’ve been eyeing that toddler romper at Gap. I loooove little girls in rompers. But I was wondering if rompers are a pain when they are potty trained?

    My mom always sang these lyrics wrong; “There’s a bathroom on the right” (Clearance Clearwater Revival, “There’s a bad moon on the rise”).

    • Fitnessista on March 31, 2015 at 9:19 am

      i was a little nervous when she said she had to go, but it was NBD

  17. Pam A on March 30, 2015 at 8:37 am

    extra special family post?!? Omg I’m so excited about what that could mean!!

  18. Bree Sprual on March 30, 2015 at 8:44 am

    For the longest time I thought the words were “Like a black wittle baby,” on Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow” song. Awkkkwaaaard. Also does anybody remember the old Chingy song “Tipsy?” My little sister used to sing, “Everybody in the club eating chips!” haha

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:17 am

      Ok, now I’m crying laughing

  19. Sarah on March 30, 2015 at 8:58 am

    There is a line in “You’re So Vain” that says, “or the wife of a close friend, wife of a close friend.” I thought (for wayyyyy too long) was, “or the wife of the postman, wife of the postman.” 🙂

  20. Kate @ www.socalrunnergal.com on March 30, 2015 at 9:05 am

    “Take me down to the very last city…where the grass is green and the girls are pretty” ok, it’s PARADISE city. When I was a kid I always messed that one up. And my girlfriend’s little cousin sings “fly like a seagull” and when his parents corrected him and said “it’s eagle” he said “EMU?!” hahahah.

    • mary on March 30, 2015 at 9:44 am

      Fly Like an Emu… hahaha!

  21. Christine on March 30, 2015 at 9:14 am

    I alwayyyyyys get song lyrics wrong. I thought the lyrics of Florence and the Machine’s Sweet Nothing were “i’m living on sex-yyyyy loving” (actual lyrics: I’m living on such sweet nothing) for a really long time. Of course, I sang them loud and proud and that’s how I was corrected. Ya live and ya learn!

  22. Jessica on March 30, 2015 at 9:15 am

    My fiance gets song lyrics wrong quite often, and when I call him out he says, “no, I’m right. This is the remix”.

  23. Kassie B on March 30, 2015 at 9:18 am

    Waterfalls. “Don’t go Jason waterfalls”. Lol! For a very very long time! My sister finally corrected me. 🙂

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:16 am

      Haha! You were like “who is this Jason guy?”

  24. Amy S on March 30, 2015 at 9:25 am

    One of my silliest ever was “You’re some super toned baby!” instead of “Pour some sugar on meee!” in Def Leppard’s Pour Some Sugar on Me. This was, of course, before I knew the name of the song. *Headsmack*

  25. mary on March 30, 2015 at 9:39 am

    In Fall Out Boy’s “Centuries”, I hear “We’ve been here forever! And here’s the frozen fruit.”

    I had to look it up to see what it was. Frozen proof!

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:16 am

      That made me laugh so hard

  26. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on March 30, 2015 at 9:49 am

    I used to be a singer so I’m pretty good at song lyrics and decoding them. The string above with the Starbucks cracked me up. I never even heard that.

  27. Sandy W. on March 30, 2015 at 9:50 am

    There are so many…but the first one I thought of immediately…”When smoke descends…” I sang that for decades until my husband told me the actual words “When Smokey sings…” by ABC. Not to mention that is the title of the song! In my defense I never knew the title to the song.

  28. Katrina on March 30, 2015 at 10:09 am

    Hi Gina! My husband and I are taking a trip to Arizona in July. We were wondering if you’ve ever driven to the top of Mt. Lemmon during the summer or know if it’s something we should avoid because of traffic. We’d be going on a weekday in summer. Thought I’d check with my Tucson native and see what your opinion is on if it’ll be busy! Thanks for any information you can provide!

  29. Stephanie B. on March 30, 2015 at 10:13 am

    When I was in elementary school, “Because the Night” by Patti Smith was on the radio a lot, and I thought the lyrics were “get out your knives” instead of “because the night.” It freaked me out!

    I’m excited for the special family posts, too 🙂

  30. Tracy on March 30, 2015 at 11:03 am

    Those daisies are BEAUTIFUL! Love daisies 🙂

    I always get song lyrics wrong! Omg my kids plead with me… please don’t sing, Mom!! Haha! Even though I know it’s not right, I still hear “Starbucks lovers” in Taylor Swift’s song.

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:14 am

      I thought those were the words!! Haha

  31. Nichole on March 30, 2015 at 11:07 am

    HA! Love this! My misheard song lyric is to “Here I go again on my own, I always sing “Like a Twister I was born to walk alone” (real lyrics – like a DRIFTER – which totally makes more sense – haha!)

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:14 am

      Haha so good!

  32. Haley on March 30, 2015 at 11:24 am

    Iggy Azalea “Fancy” – my husband and I always sing “Paper Rollercoasters thought you knew that, knew that!”

    Real words: “:Put that paper over all, I thought you knew that, knew that”

    but…let’s be real. How cool does a paper rollercoaster sound?!

  33. Chrissy @ Pink Polish and Running Shoes on March 30, 2015 at 11:32 am

    I’m notoriously bad with song lyrics. My boyfriend think it’s hilarious. I wish I could think of an example, but honestly it’s a daily occurrence for me haha.

  34. Lisa on March 30, 2015 at 11:32 am

    For the longest time my best friend thought that part of DMB’s song Crash Into Me was sweet Chewbacca, Tootsie Roll (sweet you rock and sweet you roll)!

  35. Melissa on March 30, 2015 at 11:43 am

    Matt is known for his misheard (and mis-sung) lyrics.

    Probably the one we laugh about the most is Neon Trees “Everybody Talks”…Real lyrics: “It started with a whisper…” Matt’s lyrics: “It started with a witness…” hahaha (I actually have to think twice about the real words because we’ve made fun of it for so long!)

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 11:48 am

      I used to sing “it started with the whiskey” 🙂 tom used to make fun of that one, too

      • Melissa on March 30, 2015 at 11:54 am

        And both—in certain context—can make sense! 😛
        I’m still laughing about “booty don’t need a spanking”!

  36. Iris R. on March 30, 2015 at 11:45 am

    Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People: for some reason I always hear, “All the other kids with their wombat kids.”

  37. Alex @ True Femme on March 30, 2015 at 12:10 pm

    Talk Dirty is one of my top 5 favorite songs. Whenever I hear it at Pure Barre I add a subtle booty pop 😉 Also, I have the worst hearing ever, so I always google lyrics when I buy a song because there’s a decent chance that if I didn’t I’d get 50% of the words wrong. That probably makes me weird…

  38. Gianna @ Run, Lift, Repeat on March 30, 2015 at 12:15 pm

    Oh so many misheard lyrics growing up in the time before looking up lyrics on the internet.

    I think my families favorite one of mine was “stomp on my fingers, the blame is on me” (stop pointing fingers) – Boys II Men “On bended knee” I still remember my moms hysterical laughter.

  39. mary on March 30, 2015 at 12:20 pm

    I also hear “pocketful of SOAP” in that JT song.

    Lady Gaga’s Just Dance: I heard “How to turn mustard inside out.”
    Actual: “How’d I turn my shirt inside out.”

    I guess I have food on the brain most of the time? Frozen fruit, Starbucks, green bean, mustard…

  40. Crystal on March 30, 2015 at 12:36 pm

    I always mishear song lyrics and my husband somehow always knows all the correct words and basically just laughs at me when I sing along with the radio.

    I hope the family posts are either about you guys having a baby or finally getting a pet goat. Lol, you can tell I’ve been reading for a while.

  41. Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment on March 30, 2015 at 12:38 pm

    Oh my gosh, so many misheard lyrics over my lifetime that I can’t even remember any! These comments were so fun to read through.

  42. Honey, What's Cooking? on March 30, 2015 at 12:39 pm

    Your daughter is so cute.. and you are so pretty. The pic of you two holding hands is very sweet.

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 3:46 pm

      thank you so much <3

  43. Michelle on March 30, 2015 at 12:46 pm

    One of my favorite misheard lyrics was when Outkasts – Hey Ya! Was super popular the part that says “Whats cooler than being cool?” and then the crowd shouts “ICE COLD” my friend shouted out “I SUPPOSE” – now I can’t help but shout I Suppose when I hear that song!

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 3:46 pm


  44. Briana on March 30, 2015 at 1:16 pm

    I used to say ” All the other chicks with the foam tapped Chicks” instead of “Pumped up Kicks” (which I realize now makes 0 sense)

    I’m sure I’ve got more.

    Also – Thought T-Swifts song talked about starbucks too!

  45. Kari F on March 30, 2015 at 1:28 pm

    Def Leopard “Pour Some Sugar on Me” – The real line is: “Livin’ like a lover with a radar phone”. I used to think it was “Livin’ like a lover with a red iPhone.” I know, I know… iPhone did not even exist when this song came out.

  46. Char on March 30, 2015 at 1:29 pm

    Same dealio with my daughter and Uptown Funk. I get a kick out of it every time, ohhh maaaaan!

  47. Tracy on March 30, 2015 at 1:36 pm

    So in Body Pump the song “Work Hard, Play Hard”, a lady in class thought it said “a husband’s work is never through” when it is really “a hustlers work is never through”. Makes me laugh every time we do that track!!!

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 3:45 pm

      hahah that is awesome!

  48. Ashley v on March 30, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    I always heard Starbucks lovers in t-swift’s song. I mishear things to badly that I sometimes just hear (what seems to be) random consonants thrown together. As in, I don’t always even hear real words. I’ve diagnosed myself with a mild processing disorder.

  49. Kara on March 30, 2015 at 2:48 pm

    Well this isn’t about me but my mom had a habit of mishearing Jay-Z lyrics when we would hear his songs on the radio. Two examples- In Dirt Off Your Shoulder instead of “you gotta get that dirt of ya shoulder” she asked if he is saying get that turd off ya shoulder instead of dirt. The second example- In Big Pimpin she asked my sister and I if he was saying Big Pimple.

  50. mary on March 30, 2015 at 2:54 pm

    When I first googled Blank Space it made so much more sense– “Oh, a “long list of ex-lovers”! With a blank space, to write your name!” HAHA

    The funniest Friends line ever to me was Phoebe talking about that Elton John song, “Hold me closer, Tony Danza” (aka Tiny Dancer).

    • Fitnessista on March 30, 2015 at 3:45 pm

      ahhh i had forgotten about that! so good
