My Mom, whose hearing isn't so great, thought for the longest time Elton John's song "Too Low for Zero" was "True Love for Vera" until Dad corrected her. I like Mom's version better.

For the first 50 years of my life, I thought Elvis was singing a song that had some connection to a candy bar called Mallo Cup. I could have sworn he was saying "Amulsha Cup", rather than I'm All Shook Up.

When my 10 year old daughter Taylor was six, the Centerfold song by the J. Geils Band came on the radio in the car. Her dad and I were laughing hysterically when she sang the lyrics as, "My angel is a cell phone" instead of "My angel is the centerfold". To this day, our whole family (including Taylor) sings the lyrics incorrectly just to tease her every time the song comes on!

When I was little and innocent (and understood hardly any English) I was sure that instead of "sex bomb" Tom Jones sings "James Bond, James Bond, you are James Bond". I was frustrated when I didn't find it from my father's "Bond theme songs" CD.

This isn't really my belief, but my mom's. Anyway, I was listening to "Okay I Believe You But My Tommy Gun Don't" by Brand New, and my mom thought the opening line "I am heaven sent, don't you dare forget" was "I am having sex, don't you dare forget".

She was concerned...

When I first heard the lyrics to "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out" I thought Springsteen was singing "Check Benny in the Freezer" *thud*

It wasn't until I looked up the lyrics that I found out Offspring's Come Out and Play was about schoolyard violence...

"Kids are stopping (strapping) on the way to the classroom, getting lessons (weapons) with the greatest of ease"
"One goes to the mall (morgue) and the other to jail"

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...'

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.
