I thought that since my grandpa and my dad's names are both David, than David Bowie must be my aunt's son.

In the Beatles "Help", they sing "and I do appreciate you being 'round", "'round"of course being abbreviated for "around". However, I thought they were singing about appreciating someone literally being round. I thought it was nice they were so appreciative of fat circle-shaped people.

In the song Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer there is a line that goes "As they shouted out with glee". When my mom was little she used to sing "As they shouted out with Gleem". Gleem was a toothpaste brand back then. We still sing it this way just to tease her.

My parents were Folkies, and I REALLY murdered the beautiful, tragic"No More Songs" by Phil Ochs.I thought the line "he whithers on the beat, he's dying" was "the whale is on the beach, he's dying".I..gulp.. Sang it that way for years.

A whale of an error

When I first heard the Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah" I misunderstood the line that goes "love is not a victory march" I thought it said "love is not a HIPPY march". Oops!

In 2nd grade we sang a song for our winter concert, I don't remember what it was called but it had one line that went "With the flutes I'll play my balalaika". Well, after practice I heard a friend sitting next to me singing to themself "With the fruits I'll play my but I like ya". We still joke about it to this day whenever someone mentions a flute or a balalaika.

Beatles - Penny Lane
Actual lyrics:
Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
There beneath the blue suburban skies, I sit up, meanwhile back

My lyrics:
And Elaine is in my ears and in my eyes.
Troll beneath the blue suburban skies, I sit up, three wild ducks.
