Yes, I can memorize lyrics too.

I'm one of those annoying people that does not hear lyrics. I hear riffs, I hear rhythm (even if I can't dance to it) and melody. So of course I must fill in the blanks and I do so, and like most lyric bunglers I do it with surety of tongue. That's right people, I sing it wrong and sing it loud. Don't even try to tell me the right lyrics, once I've got my lyrics in my head there's no changing or reprogramming. Believe me, people who love me have tried over and over. I'm not even going to tell you what I sing to Robert Palmer's "Addicted To Love" but let's just say that when I finally looked up the real lyrics one day I cringed.

But people, there's hope! I've been listening to this Lady Antebellum song for the last couple of months and love it. Best of all I've got the lyrics straight and I sing them full voice, in the car, where I can force my children to listen to me now massacre melody instead of lyrics. See, momma's youthful soprano evaporated with lack of practice and adulthood. Please enjoy this video (even though it is a little hokey) and thank your lucky stars that you're hearing the real Lady Antebellum and not moi.
You're welcome.
