They do what they do.
Thinking about schools and peers and parent-child attachments....I came across one of my favorite posts .
This is funny, but there's a British vs. American English problem. I doubt there's such a thing as an American popular song that even uses the word "vicar". Similarly, an American would never hear "our soul" as "****hole".
Also, there's an American song that I for years misheard as a complaint about a "medieval woman". It's by Electric Light Orchestra.
I had a hard time with the first few minutes because I didn't know the original songs. Then I quit listening.But my mother-in-law hears an AC/DC song lyrics as "dirty jeans, tie-dyed cheap."Now I do too :-)-Mark Roulo
Peter Kay speaks non-standard English; he uses "were" for "was", as in, "I thought it were 'birdseed'"! I don't know what his dialect is.Part of the "vicar" problem is that in Black English, a short "i" is used where White English uses a short "e", so, for instance, "pen" is pronounced like "pin". That's how "record" can be heard as "vicar".
