I used to think that the lyric "boiled or stewed, whole or chewed" in Cookie Monster's healthy food song was "almond stew, polo chew".

When I was 5-7 I thought "let the bodies hit the floor" was "let the parties at the flow" I knew about that song because I watched youtube back then (this was like 2008-2010) so there was many videos with that song in the background. I didn't know much english but knew a few words. After I found out the name of the band was "drowning pool" I thought they lived in an inflatable empty swimming pool that was stranded at the middle of the ocean.

Up until five minutes ago, I thought the lyric in Maybe Tomorrow by the Jackson 5 was "I only know my head when it's here on Earth, this time you'll look into my eye" when it turns out it's really "I only know my heaven is here on Earth, each time you look into my eyes". It's strange because my version still made sense to me.

When I first heard the song "Feliz Navidad", I had no idea that it's a Spanish phrase, so I thought it was actually something like "At least knock me down"

I used to believe that swing low sweet chariot was talking about some guy named Jerry-O. I may have read the word chariot but never heard it. Also, I thought "Jordan" referred to my mother's maiden name, not knowing of the river.

I thought the lyrics to Changes by David Bowie specifically the second verse "I watch the ripples change their size but never leave the stream of warm impermanence" as "I watch the nipples change their size but never leave the stream, I want another sandwich"

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.

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.
