I know a lot of people believed this but ... I used to believe the CCR song "Bad Moon on the Rise" was "There's a bathroom on the right." I thought they must have had some kind of traumatic experience to write and sing a song about where the bathroom is.

My dad used to sing the song "It's Raining, It's Pouring" to me when I was a kid. When he came to the part that goes "and he couldn't get up in the morning" I used to think he said "and he cooked it up in the morning". I had this scary mental picture of an old man bumping his head so hard that his head fell off, and then he cooked his OWN HEAD the next morning. Why, I don't know. I am laughing so hard right now while typing this that I have tears coming out of my eyes.

Rememer the cheesy 'Superman' song that was around in the late 80's? (Comb your hair, brush your teeth, now FLY! etc) Well I taught all my friends the dance with all the actions. Only I thought that 'Hitch a ride' was actually 'Hit your eyes' so I had all these kids at the school disco hitting themselves, and nobody knew why.

Pink Floyd- Brick Wall.

I used to believe it was "we don't need no fart control" in the second line there.

That Cher song that goes, "I feel something inside that says". I have until this very day thought that she was singing, "I feel something inside this @$$".

In the song "I'm Not a Loser" by the Decendents, I thought the line "you just bought her a gram of coke" was actually "you just bought her grandma a coat" which isn't very punk at all.

I used to believe - well actually, somewhere inside I STILL believe - that in Michael Jackson's "Billy Jean", the refrain goes:

Billy Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who says that I am the one
BUT THE CHAIR IS NOT MY SON!

Alright, so it doesn't make much sense, but I like it that way. And MJ should sing clearer.

My son, who's just turned nine (bless him!), chanted this out the other day:

"Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Stabilise! Stabilise!"

Put this to the tune of to the tune of the Bee Gees' 'Staying Alive' and you'll see where the confusion comes in!

When I was a kid, one of my favorite songs was "I'm in Love with My Car" by Queen. However, I was confused by the line, "get a grip on my boyracer rollbar," probably because I heard it as "catch a whiff of my boyish aroma."
