The 10 funniest lyric changes on 'Kidz Bop 29'
Another Kidz Bop album, another round of amazing lyric changes: Kidz Bop 29, the latest compilation in the long-running series, was released on Friday (July 10), with the Kidz Bop Kids performers interpreting recent popular songs and swapping out any questionable lines to make sure this is a kid-friendly affair. This has been a long-running practice, and it is, of course, very funny to compare the original and Kidz Bop lyrics -- which is what we did!
Here are the 10 most hilarious lyric changes on the latest Kidz Bop compilation:
10. On the Kidz Bop version of Kanye West & Rihanna & Paul MccCartney's "FourFiveSeconds," the original line "Hold me back, I'm 'bout to spaz" is changed to "Hold be back, I'm 'bout to crash." Watch out, that crazy kid is about to FALL ASLEEP! Restrain him, before we, too, fall asleep!
9. On Ne-Yo & Pitbull's "Time Of Our Lives," "Tell the bartender line up some shots" morphs into "Tell my friends to line up some spots." That doesn't make much sense, but if friends of the Kidz Bop Kids understand how to "line up some spots," more power to them.
8. On the kid-friendly version of Jason Derulo's "Want To Want Me," the lyric "And you whisper in my ear, 'Baby, I'm yours'" becomes "And you hold my hand and say, 'Baby, I'm yours.'" Whispering sweet nothings in one's ear? Not cool, kids. Hand-holding and declarations of possession are more PG-rated nowadays.
7. On Meghan Trainor's "Dear Future Husband," "After every fight/Just apologize/And maybe then I'll let you try and rock my body right" becomes "After every fight/Just apologize/And maybe then I'll let you try and prove that you were right." Is the Kidz Bop lyric actually more clever than the original? Well played, Kidz Bop Kids.
6. On Andy Grammer's "Honey I'm Good," "You look good, I will not lie" is turned into "You seem nice, I will not lie." It's cool how the Kidz Bop Kids won't lie about the subject SEEMING nice, as if they're not ready to declare "You are nice" without the chance of fibbing.
5. On Flo Rida's "G.D.F.R.," the line "It's no thots, only Anna Kournikova's/I set records, ratchets hold up" is edited to "It's no game, only Anna Kournikova's/I set rackets, rackets hold up." Fun to imagine the board meeting in which someone at Kidz Bop said, "So what should we change 'thots' to? 'Game'? Okay, great."
4. On Maroon 5's "Sugar," the lyric "Yeah, you show me good loving" becomes "Yeah, you show me good dancing." The kidz love their "good" dance moves, and they are rightly exalted here.
3. On "FourFiveSeconds," "If I go to jail tonight, promise you'll pay my bail" is changed to "If we're going out tonight, promise I'll pay the bill." This... is pretty cheap, Kidz Bop Kids! You won't go out until someone else PROMISES to pay for you? Have some dignity!
2. On Taylor Swift's "Style," "And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt" becomes "And I got that good girl faith and favorite shirt." Hard to say what's on that shirt, but glad to hear it's a Kidz Bop fave.
1. On "G.D.F.R.," the line "Your girl just kissed a girl/I do bi chicks" changes to "Your girl just danced a twirl, I do high kicks." This is just impressive, and impressively nonsensical. Your girl just danced a twirl? Cool. Guess what else: I do HIGH KICKS. Do these things relate to each other? Nah, but don't worry about it, because it's GOIN' DOWN FOR REEEEEAL.
