If you've ever heard the Def Leppard song, "Pour Some Sugar on Me" you likely recognize that line. It's something that's always puzzled me – after all, doesn't the yellow light come before the red? :) Maybe someone can clarify why the line is like that? Has there ever been a song with a line that confused you? Post the song name, the line that confuses you and maybe someone can help you figure out what it means? :)

I guess it would probably sound okay to sing yellow light, red light, green a light go, maybe it just didn't sound right to Joe Elliott. I thought I was the only one in the world who analyzed stuff like that. Thank you so much!
