    Yep, I've always heard save my breath, too.

    But at least this is quite a bit closer than the people who actually hear, "who makes the rules?" on Fools.

    Now THAT I will just never understand hearing.

    "Who makes the rules?" is a better lyric than "It makes me blue", which doesn't even rhyme with "I live with fools."

    Completely disagree.

    Regardless, it is still hilarious to me that people even heard that. It doesnt even sound close to that on the WACF version, but then years later when all the club days stuff started leaking, it became even more clear that that wasnt the lyric.

    Yeah, i hate that stupid "who makes the rules" faux line.

    I like the "blue" thing better.
    Just sounds more Dave/funny, somehow.

    I always thought it was prayers in sinners swing AND I thought it was "who makes the rules" in Fools until you guys started discussing it (Fools was a few months ago). Went back to listen, and sure enough!

    I'm sure there are lots of lyrics I still misunderstand, but not as bad as one of my buddies over here. He just in the last couple of years realized it's "Panama" and not "Animal".

    Not a big VH fan, but still... that's pretty bad.

    Lol, probably my biggest and dumbest misperception of a VH lyric was when I was a kid I always thought "child of the storm" in Atomic Punk was actually "I tried to rob a store".

    "Who makes the rules" just sounds too obvious and corny. I'd expect that from, dare I say it, an 80s hair metal band. Sounds like a line Bret Michaels would have written instead of what Dave did.

    At the time, i did think "Panama" was a weird title & chorus.

    I liked the song instantly, but was confused, lyrically.
