I thought that "toony" was a slang term for a part of your body of which you had two, as in the song "Ballin' the Jack" (First you put your toonies close up tight). (OUCH!)

My initials are REM, so I always thought the R.E.M. albums that my parents owned were connected to me somehow.

I used to believe part of the lyrics to Fall Out Boy's "Centuries" went:
"You look so pretty, but your gun's so soon."
When, really, it's
"You look so pretty, but YOU'RE GONE so soon."

top belief!

There's a song which has lyrics that are basically just a bunch of actions followed by "Rawhide" and then it starts again.
Up until I was *seventeen*, I had only heard of rawhide as that stuff you give dogs to chew on, so I thought that it was akin to have a song where you shout, "Dog food!" at random intervals, so the song made no sense to me.

Up until I was like 7 or 8, I thought the lyrics to the song "Last Christmas" were, "Last Christmas, I gave you my harp..."

I used to listen to this song at school, and the lyrics were things like "Welcome back" and "We're proud of you". I thought it was about a girl (no idea why I specifically thought she was a girl) graduating a boarding high school, and it was sung by her parents.

Later, I learned that it was about welcoming soldiers back after a war, but I thought my version was better.

When I was a child, I used to believe the singer or the music group lived in my CD's and they allowed to sing (and live) only when I wanted.
