Ever since the first time I heard the song “Fast car” By Tracy Chapman, I thought that it was sung by a teenage boy. years later I was shocked to find out Tracy Chapman was actually a woman
In the early 1960s, Peter, Paul & Mary's recording of "Puff the Magic Dragon" was played on the radio a lot. Yes, I am old enough to remember hearing it on the radio in my parents' car. There is a line in which Little Jackie Paper would bring to Puff : ". . . strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff". I did not know what sealing wax was; I only knew what a ceiling was. I knew plenty of people waxed their kitchen floors. But I didn't know anyone who waxed their ceiling. I still haven't met anyone who waxes their ceiling, or seen ceiling wax in any store.
I thought the song "Pop Goes the Weasel" was about a weasel exploding soda
Kasabian In the song
“you’re in love with a psycho”
I thought it said
“Jibber jabber at the bargain booze”
Are used to think the song white lines was about salt
I believed that Rupert Hrint and Ed Sheeran were the same person.
I thought that take me to church was sung by a black guy in a fedora . . . that's also what I thought Bruno Mars was
I thought Rock and Roll were 2 musicians, with one who rocked and one who rolled.
I thought the song Skip To My Lou was about skipping to the toilet.
I used to believe that the ABBA song Waterloo was about the train line in London, before realising, due to the lyrics, that I was actually about the historical battle!
