Misheard lyric in Sam Cooke's "Twisting The Night Away": it's actually supposed to be "dancing with the chicken slats". Chicken slats are the boards that make up the framework of a chicken coop. This would have been familiar to Cooke who was from rural Mississippi. Also it's crucial to the song: as in "Another Saturday Night" the protagonist didn't have a girl, thus he was dancing with "Chicken slats ".

I thought the song Smooth Operator by Sade sounded like Rudolph the Reindeer. Also thought Betty Davis Eyes by Kim Carne sounded like 'Better days to decide'.

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..."
