Do the Regulator?

I didn’t announce it last week, but this month I’ll be posting songs that either I, or someone I know, misunderstood. Oh yes, you know exactly what I’m talking about. You love this particular song, sing it to yourself and think you know the lyrics. And then the moment you’re with a friend, they say, “That’s not what they’re saying!”


Today’s song is one I learned about from my friend. One of his coworkers would walk around singing “Do the regulator”…when the song was Dude (Looks Like A Lady). I know, I know, how could he possibly messed this one up? Well, first off, he’s from down the bayou (down da bayou) and his accent is a little (okay, a lot) flat. I can actually understand how he might have gotten it  mixed up.

So today’s first misunderstood song is Aerosmith’s Dude (Looks Like A Lady). Are you going to sing it wrong now? It’s okay. Give it a try.
“Do da regulator!”
