When I heard the song "Oh Susanna" as a very little kid I was very confused about the verse about coming from Alabama with "a banjo on my knee".I literally thought it meant the guy had limped a long distance with a banjo tied or strapped to his knee, which must have made his knee really sore and raw! My belief in this idiotic idea was further confirmed by my grandmother who for some reason didn't think it was very Ladylike to play a banjo.When she heard me singing the song ( we learned it it school) she commented sharply that she hoped she would never see me with a banjo on my knee.I quickly agreed with her.Who wanted to do anything as stupid and painful as to strap a banjo on my knee and go hiking to another state until my skin rubbed off? It was several years before I figured out the actual meaning of the song and the snobby attitude behind Grandmother's comment.
When I was young I did not asscociate the Danny Boy song with Scotland, and with the words "... the pipes the pipes are ca-alling"; the image I had was of vague industrial water pipes - and wondered why someone was being called by them, but song lyrics were often pretty strange, so I just left it at that.
I used to think that the lyric "boiled or stewed, whole or chewed" in Cookie Monster's healthy food song was "almond stew, polo chew".
I thought my parents had written "Don't Worry, Be Happy".
I always thought the lyrics in I'm Blue were "I could beat up a guy"
I used to believe that Murray from 'The Wiggles' was actually a girl. I never heard the name Murray before and probably associated it with Mary and he had longer hair than the rest of them. It was probably a bit of wishful thinking on my part because I got angry when other shows did not include a girl.
When I was 5-7 I thought "let the bodies hit the floor" was "let the parties at the flow" I knew about that song because I watched youtube back then (this was like 2008-2010) so there was many videos with that song in the background. I didn't know much english but knew a few words. After I found out the name of the band was "drowning pool" I thought they lived in an inflatable empty swimming pool that was stranded at the middle of the ocean.
I used to believe the line, "take it back now y'all", in the Cha Cha Slide was "take it back daddy y'all".
In one part of the sound of music where the captain plays the guitar and sings edelweiss, i thought he was saying anal wipes
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.
