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

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.

I used to believe the lyrics to Rupert Holmes' "Escape" were "if you like pina coladas, and getting cotton lorraine". I had no clear idea what "cotton lorraine" was, but I guessed it was some kind of facial.

When I was little I loved the song Love roller coaster by the Ohio players. I used to think when he says "a crazy ride now" was "eggs and rhyme now". I got the image of scrambled eggs whenever that part came on.

I used to think in "row your boat", they said "life is butter dream". I always pictured rowing your boat down a lake of butter in the sky.

When I heard "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", I always heard "He knows if you've been bad or good" as "he knows if you've been batter good". I thought of cake batter at first, but then I reasoned that "batter good" was an odd term for "very good".

A lot of people think the song Bad Moon on the Rise is Bathroom on the right but I got to see this illustrated live at a Berkeley Folk club by the Celtic Rock band Boiled in Lead.They were introducing themselves and the club at the start of the concert and they said where the exits were, ect. and then they all broke into tune together and sang "by the way there is a bathroom on the righy" which was correct. It was very unexpected and funny and thr audience broke up laughing and clapping.Later they did one better by playing Bad Moon on the bagpipes! It was a great concert.

Bathroom was on the right
