misheard lyricsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I thought the song Controversy by Prince was not saying "controversy" but instead "count your blessings". I like my version better
I had been listening to the song "AFRICA" by Toto since I was about 9. well for some reason I could never get what he was saying in the chorus. I asked around and people said he was saying "I guess it rains down in Africa!" It didn't make a whole lot of sense either. like why wouldn't it rain there? I started singing that but it still didn't sound right. And it didn't make sense eith I finally found out it was "I BLESS the rains down in Africa!" when I was 22!
Eurythmics song of "right by your side", I used to think that it was a song about a man in love with a 12 yr old boy because it sounded like a man singing and I thought the lyrics was like this " I want to be right by your son!!!" XD oh gosh that one part gave me a very bad thought and I was freaking out whenever I heard that song.
One of the first songs I learned in nursery school was "My Bonnie is over the ocean". We used to sing it with the English lyrics even though none of us little children understood the meaning, and so I always imagined a pony on a ship crossing the ocean.
At the end of the song, the chorus goes "Brought back, brought back, oh brought back my Bonnie to me" - in my version, this became "Brotbeck (= bread baker in Swiss German), Brotbeck, oh Brotbeck my pony to me". Makes sense, right?
I used to love the song All Star, by Smashmouth. I always thought some of the lyrics were "She was looking kinda dumb with her finger up her bum, and the shape of an elf on her forehead."
The children were never given service books in the choir. We learnt the service by heart. The first time I was given a service book I was shocked that in the Eucharistic prayer it said, ' It is meet and right so to do.' I had always thought it said, '...meat and rice.'
I thought in the Transformers theme song were it says "robots in disguise" it was saying "robots in the skies" which I thought was weird because not all of the robots can fly!
I used to believe that Madonna's "dress you up in my love" was "dress you up in nylon."
I used to believe that the line "Wo-oo we're half way there" in "Living on a prayer" by Bon Jovi was "Oh-oh half-laid egg", and every time the words "make it" were used, that they were "naked", for instance "It doesn't make a difference if we're naked or not", and "Take my hand, we're naked I swear!". Even now, I cannot hear the song without indefinitely hearing "Half-laid egg.", It just seems to sound closer to that than "Half way there."!
Michael Jackson song Billy Jean says the KID is not my son. I always thought it said the CHAIR is not my son. Well of course it isn't...duh!
Steve Miller Band song "jet airliner" has the lyric " big ole jet airliner, don't carry me too,far away" which I believed until just a few years ago, was "big ole chair that I'm lyin' on, don't carry me too far away."
I used to think that in this song, forgot the name, in a part that said " A little bit busy on my telephone " said, " Im a little bit busy on my planet, Bone." My sister had to correct me many times....
When I was little, my dad would often play "Hot Rod Lincoln". There was never any alcohol in the house, and I'd never heard anybody drop the 'g' from a word ending in 'ing' before, so I thought Drinkin was a place, and that the guy driving the Hot Rod Lincoln was going to give him a lift.
Apparently in the song Eton Rifles by the Jam, they sing 'Eton Rifles, Eton Rifles' and not, as I thought, 'Meets a right one, Meets a right one'.
In the song, "American Idiot" by Green Day, the line goes, "So maybe I'm the f*gg*t America," but I was in third grade and thought it was, "So maybe I'm a fat guy in America."
When I was little, I heard the song 'I Want Candy' by Aaron Carter. My name being Andy, I'd mishear the lyric as 'I Want Andy'.
I found this extremely creepy and imagined the little people in the radio being obsessed with me and wanting to capture me.
I used to believe that Leona Lewis' song "Angel" was about a ninja, because of how she pronounced the word.
I use to think that Foreigner song 'Jukebox Hero' was actually Juicebox hero... It just made more sense to me that way.
My brother was listening to The Corrs and instead "leave me breathless" he would sing "give me breakfast".
When I was about 2 or 3, I used to think Buddy Holly's Peggy Sue actually said "Eggy Soup" XP
