I used to believe that "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot said "I like big butts in a can..." Always wondered how anyone could get their butt in a can... Then the line "When a girl walks in with a really big bin" helped me make the connection that those "cans" were really trash cans, aka garbage BINS. So I envisioned that Sir Mix-a-Lot liked girls who walked around with trash cans on their butts...

I thought the chorus of You Give Love A Bad Name by Bon Jovi was:

"Shout to the heart, and you're too vain. You give love a band aid."

My sister used to think that the words to Manfred Mann's song 'Doo Wah Diddy' were 'I'm hurt, she's mad...' instead of 'I'm hers, she's mine...'

I used to believe that in the Hot Chocolate song "You Sexy Thing", the lead singer was singing "I believe in wackos" instead of "I believe in miracles".

The song "Unstoppable" by Kat DeLuna came on the radio the other day. My friend Liv thought the lyrics said, "You can talk all you want, but my skin is really thick...I'm a soccer ball."

Hey, it works.

I used to believe that in the song "Roxanne" by The Police, that Sting was talking about a light that people turn on and off in their bedrooms when he was singing, "You don't have to put on the red light".

I always thought that the song "Dude Looks Like A Lady" by Aerosmith was really "Do Just Like A Lady." I figured that the lead singer had seen a really hot girl and was saying something along the lines of "now that's what I call a lady."

I think I was in high school when I figured out it was about drag queens.

I used to think the song Secret Agent Man was actually secret asian man. I was singing along in the car when my mom started laughing and told me it was agent, like James Bond, not asian. I had always wondered how a person could secretly be asian. I was 16 when I finally found this out.

When I first heard the song "Mi Vida Loca" by Pam Tillis, I was totally unprepared to understand the line that says "Destiny turns on a dime". For one thing, I'd known a girl named "Destiny" but wasn't familiar with "destiny" as just a common noun. As a WORD I had no idea what it meant. Secondly, I was totally unfimiliar with the phrase to "turn on a dime". The only way I could guess the meaning was that first, It was about a girl named "Destiny", and secondly the turning on a dime" was meant as if somehow a dime might have an on / off switch. But I puzzled greatly how one could "turn on" a dime in that since (as if it were a light or something). So the song left me wondering in what since a dime could possibly have been "off" so that this girl Destiny could then turn it "on".

Near the beginning of the song 'Billy Jean' by Michael Jackson, there's a bit that goes 'Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed'' and I used to think it was 'Then Harry hit her with ice cream'.

I used to believe that the lyrics to The Christmas Song were "... and so, I'm offering this simple phrase to kids FROM ROOM 292..." the number of the room in which my elementary school music class took place.

I used to think one line to the All American Rejects' "Gives You Hell" was "I've never seen you fart so hard." Turns out it's actually "fall!"

Also, I thought that some Mamma Mia song had a line that said "Ooh, since the baby farted..." My friend agreed with me. After a few more times hearing it I figured out that it's actually "Since the day we parted."

I have a pretty wrong mind when it comes to lyrics... and farts...

For the longest time I thought Credence Clearwater Revival's song "Bad Moon Rising" had the lyrics

Don't go around tonight
Well it's bound to take your life
"There's a bathroom on the right"

The line is really

"There's a bad moon on the rise"

I was 19 when I was singing "Dirty Deeds Dunder Chicken" which my now husband looked and said WHAT? The AC/DC song Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheep was on. He died laughing. I just knew Done Dirt Cheap was Dunder Chicken.

When I was young I believed that in Queens Bohemian Rhapsody they sang..."Hes just a poor boy from a poor family. Spare him his life from these pork sausages!" when it was actually..."Hes just a poor boy from a poor family. Spare him his life from this monstrosity"

Also when I heard ABBA singing Super Trouper I thought the lyrics were..."I was sick and tired of everything, when I called you last night from Tesocs" when it's actually "I was sick and tired of everything, when I called you last night from Glasgow"...oops!

When I first started school, my class used to sing the hymn 'He's got the whole world in his hands' and I thought the words were 'He's got the whole world, P.E. Sands'. I wondered who P.E. Sands was and why he would be holding the world in his hands.

In Beyonce's song "Single Ladies" are the lines:

"I need no permission, did I mention?
Don't pay him any attention."

For a long time I thought those lines said:

"I need no permission, did I mention?
Duct tape 'em many attentions."
