HAR!

Though some of those seem a bit forced. Anyone can take a lyric that's easy to understand and make up a new phrase that fits with the syllables and vowel sounds. It's funniest when you actually hear people singing what they believe to be the true lyrics.

Many a confused teenager has been perplexed when pondering the image of Jimi Hendrix kissing another guy!

Also funny--when someone gets all excited when they hear REM's "End of the World as We Know It" come on and they start singing full force only to start mumbling three lines into it--when they can no longer keep up with Michael's singing. "Tommy Boy" has the ultimate parody of this experience. It's funny 'cause it's true!
