"I feed horses all the time"


You know the song "I hear voices all the time"?  Well for about the first 10 times I heard this song on the radio I thought he was singing "I feed horses"; seriously it all made sense to me:

"I just can't help but hear'em Man I can't avoid it" - Of course, when livestock is hungry they "bawl" and you really shouldn't avoid it - you should go out and feed!

"My Dad sayin' work that job but don't work your life away" - feed the horses but get out of the barn when your work is done - have some fun!

"And Granddad sayin' you can have a few but don't ever cross that line" - it's ok to drink and have fun but you still have to get up in the morning and feed the horses so just watch how much your drinkin' and don't be passin' out somewhere!

"My Dad sayin' quit that team and you'd be a quitter for the rest of your life" - because I played the whole season of ball I learned that even when I don't want to I have to go out and feed the horses!

"And Mama tellin' me to say a prayer everytime I lay down at night" - come on that just makes sense

"And Grandma say'n if you find the one you better treat her right" - if you find a good horse you better take care of it!

"And just when I've lost my way or I've got too many choices"  I feed horse - when you are confused just do what you know  - feed the horses!

Quite frankly I could go on and on - I looked up the lyrics and can come up with a "feeding horse" scenerio for every line - while not overly directly clever they all make sense to me!  When I hear this song now it still sounds like he is saying "I feed horses all the time" and have been known to scream at the radio "For the love of Mike just feed them, we feed hogs and cattle everyday and don't have to sing about it!"  I will admit that the actual lyrics of the song have a great message I just can't help but always think about horses!


  1. I don't know if I've heard that song...who sings it??

  2. that is HILARIOUS!

    Remember the song, "I smell T-R-O-U-BLE?" My friend thought it was "I smell pee all over you and me."

    And "Dust on the bottle"..."there might be, a little dust on the bottle, but don't let it fool ya about what's inside." Well, I never listened to the verses when I was little and I thought it was "dust on the Bible." Made sense to me!

  3. Haha trying to make sense of all you wrote but i have NEVER heard of the song... haha...


  4. That's funny.
    I was going to do a post about misunderstanding lyrics.
    I have an XM radio in my car, so now I see the title of the song shows on the display. I'm coming to find out that I've been misunderstanding a lot of songs over the years!
    I just found out an 80s Aerosmith song "Dude Looks Like a Lady" is not "Do the Funky Lady". Go figure.
