Ah the joys of Kareoke :)) You can sing anything you want, to the real music.

And in my live country/rock band we’d have fun changing lyrics to see if anyone was paying attention.

My favorite ;
singing and pointing “There’s the bathroom on the right”
( “there’s a bad moon on the rise” from Bad Moon Rising, C.C.R. )

(Johny Nash) I can’t see clearly now, my eyesight’s gone,
I can’t see all obstacles in my way
Here I see dark clouds that have me blind
It’s gonna be a dark (dark), dark (dark)
Sunshiny day

House of the Setting Sun (The Animals)

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
It’s been the ruin of many a poor boy,
Oh, God - I forget; was I one?
