Song lyrics gone wrong

I realised today that although I think I know the words to a song, I often times have no idea what’s being said. So when I sing those parts aloud, I sound like a complete jackass. Here are a few examples:

Idioteque - Radiohead

Another Brick in the Wall (Part II) - Pink Floyd

Pump It - Black Eyed Peas

Love the Way You Lie - Eminem feat. Rihanna

Gimme the Light - Sean Paul

EDIT: I only recently found out that I was incorrect by singing “I throw my hands up in the air sometimes, singin’ ayyyy-o, Galileo!” (Dynamite – Taio Cruz) I mean, I knew it didn’t make sense, but eventually I just accepted the fact that perhaps pop/R&B artists were starting to appreciate famous astronomers.

      Yeah I don’t know why, but it still sounds wrong to me. Why would he watch her burn, and why would she say “Oh it’s cool, I like he way it hurts. Wink!” She cray-cray.
