Re: Fun Music Thread: Lyrics you got wrong!!
I have spent like 20 years hearing the Van Morrison song lyrics..
And it stoned me to my soul
Stoned me just like jelly roll
And wondering wtf it was actually saying as obviously I got it wrong since it wasn't saying jelly roll. I only hear this song in shops so I never remembered to find out.
And I FINALLY thanks to this thread remembered to look it up. After decades.
AND IT IS ACTUALLY SAYING JELLY ROLL!!!
"Jelly roll" is an old black slang term that can mean the female genitalia, the sexual act, or women collectively (like "pussy").
Or it could be a reference to ragtime/jazz musician Jelly Roll Morton
