This is why the internet exists
Have you ever been singing along with a great song on the radio - you even have most of the words right - but you really have no idea what it's really about? YES YOU HAVE!!
I've been singing "Viva la Vida" by Cold Play for months now just SURE that it was all about Elvis Presley - how he used to be "King" and "I used to roll the dice" (which sounded like a perfect tie in to Viva Las Vegas)...etc, etc. It made perfect since....well, most of it anyway....except the part that made NO SENSE.
Lyrics (dot com). AHA - "Roman Cavalry choirs are singing"....WHAT??
My old friend Google beckoned me... "ASK ME ANYTHING and I'LL TELL YOU THE ANSWER". So I said "OK - FINE....what does it MEAN??"
Turns out it has nothing to do with Elvis. I feel betrayed. *sigh*
