Here's another misheard lyric that I can thank my lovely wife for. I don't mind when she does misquote songs because it gives me a chance to flex my 80s muscles at her. This wonderful misinterpretation is one of her more comical ones. The real 'Til Tuesday lyric is "keep it down now, voices carry" and her lyrics were "even downtown, boys are scary." No matter how you sing it, it's still a great 80s song!
Here they are performing live on American Bandstand in 1985
