Random fun with Bongolese

Things are a bit slow in the U2 world at the moment, so I thought I'd post something a bit random, but very U2-related that just happened.

Because my friends and I are nerds, we decided to listen to U2 "together" while chatting online. So there were three of us listening to The Unforgettable Fire together, and commenting on the songs/typing the lyrics as we did so.

But hilarity ensued toward the end of Wire. I know that Bono can be a bit hard to understand sometimes, and since my friend Greg is not a super-crazy U2 fan like I am (and is not actually a very big fan of The Unforgettable Fire in general) perhaps he never bothered to actually look up the lyrics. So instead, he just typed what it sounded like Bono was saying (to him, anyway) :

Greg: HOO
Greg: HUH
Greg: moisturizer
Greg: that's right
Greg: JACK JACK JACK JACK KURT GLEN IM UP YOUR BOAT

I started laughing as soon as he said "moisturizer" in place of "won't you do it now", but the rest just killed me.


Won't you do it now
That's right, just keep me going

In some white track
You come the right track
Cartoon cutout
Cut throat bled out
I'm on your side
Be on the both side
I'm alright Jack
You get off my back
I'm no dope
I give you hope
Here's the rope
Here's the rope
Now... swing on it
