Up until five minutes ago, I thought the lyric in Maybe Tomorrow by the Jackson 5 was "I only know my head when it's here on Earth, this time you'll look into my eye" when it turns out it's really "I only know my heaven is here on Earth, each time you look into my eyes". It's strange because my version still made sense to me.

top belief!

When I was a little kid, I liked listening to a song called "The Yodeler" while riding in the car. One lyric was "When he met with an avalanche interrupting his cry". I thought that an avalanche was a type of animal, like a bear or squirrel. I also thought that the part "Once an Austrian went yodeling" was "Once an ostrich went yodeling" and I would picture an ostrich walking across a nature trail to the mountains.

When I was 5 I liked listening to my kid songs CD in the car, and one of the songs I liked was called "Skip to My Lou", which I would sing as "Sing to My Jew". My mom would laugh whenever I sung it, and I never understood why since I had no idea what a "Jew" was yet. It was funny though

When I first heard the song "Feliz Navidad", I had no idea that it's a Spanish phrase, so I thought it was actually something like "At least knock me down"
