What did they just sing ???!
The music is in full swing and we sing a song at the top of our lungs… but the lyrics don’t quite make sense. We’ve all been there and sang it.
In fact, badly interpreted song lyrics are a fairly common and usually hilarious event called “mondegreen” – a word or phrase resulting from misunderstanding another word or phrase, especially in a song. or a poem.

In a now-deleted tweet, Swift wrote: “Send my love to all the lonely Starbucks lovers this Valentine’s Day… even if those aren’t the correct lyrics. ” To which the Starbucks coffee chain playfully responded, “Wait, isn’t it?”
