A 1980s commercial about rail travel had a song that went 'This is the age of the train' and I thought it was 'This is the edge of the train'
I am a huge Duran Duran fan. Have been since I was 6. I always particularily loved the song Save A Prayer especially since it was written for me... "You saw me standing by the wall, corner of Elaine Street..."
And when I was much older, my heart was broken when I found out that Simon Le Bon was on the corner of Main Street.
I thought the line in the song "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" was "with nobody candy knives." I really wanted a candy knife.
The Tina Moore song that goes 'Never gonna let you go' has the line 'Worth more than a million in gold' and I firstly thought it was 'Football and a million goals'.
My grandmother has always been terrible at understanding song lyrics. She believed that "Taking Care of Business" was, instead, "take a can biscuits." She also thought that the CCR song "Bootleg Bootleg" was koolaid koolaid. And it was not "The Girl With Kaleidoscope eyes." Nope, it was "the girl with colitis goes by."
There's a lyric in the U2 song "Bullet The Blue Sky" that goes "I can see those fighter planes." My dad thought it was "I can see those spider fangs."
We'll never let him live that one down.
When me and my friend were in kindergarten, we used to sing this rhyme "hey who's that it's a missippi cat M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I". Only we heard it as "M-I-S-S-I-S-S-S-P-P-I". Well, we got into a whole fight about it with our dads, until around three months ago- I'm fourteen now- that our dads were right. I still won't admit it, though...
My son thought the words "Paparazzi" in the Lady Gaga song were actually "Papa Rahtzee" and asked me why she was singing about this random man called Papa!
Blackadder does not ride a 'Pitch Black Steed' but in fact rides a 'Black Jetski'
I dunno, I was a child. I was probably too busy shoving lego up my nose to listen to the lyrics correctly.
When I was little my dad often played a tape in his car with the song "More than a Woman". I always thought it was "four legged woman" and sung along that way.
I used to believe that one of Lady Gaga´s songs goes "bedroom ants" instead of "bad romance"
I used to think that in the song "Everytime you go away" by Paul Young that he was singing..."Everytime you go away you take a piece of MEAT with you". Just the thought of a man packing a suitcase with a big fat porterhouse steak is enough to crack me up now that I know the actual lyrics!
The Monkees song 'Daydream Believer' has the lyrics 'to a daydream believer and a homecoming queen'. I thought for a very long time that she was a queen that was literally coming home. Like from overseas or something.
When I first saw "The Sound of Music," I was baffled as to why they would be sending Maria away when they'd just sung about how good she was at solving all sorts of difficult problems. "How do you solve a problem like Maria...?"
It wasn't until much later that I realized Maria WAS the problem.
I used to love Elvis when I was a kid and I only realised last week that the words are actually "hard-headed woman been a thorn in the side of man... Ever since the world began", not, as I used to sing very loudly, "hard-headed woman with a hole in the side of her head... Ever since the waffle began."
For the song 'Listen Like Thieves' by INXS, I've been singing for ten years now, "Everybody's telling their knees... Listen like thieves!" instead of "Everybody's down on their knees..."
I thought that Radiohead's "Creep" contained the lyrics, "I'm a tree, I'm a willow" instead of, "I'm a creep, I'm a willow."
When I was a kid and I heard Bob Segars "Like a Rock" I thought he was singing Fraggle Rock and it was my fave song since I loved Fraggle Rock. My dad one day told me what he was really saying, I started to cry so he put it on and said Hey wait your right it is Fraggle Rock!
I used to think the Metallica song that says exit light, enter night. was actually talking about An EXIT light you would see above a door.
My kids a few years ago thought they knew everything!! Well,when they sang out loud ''Lock Tide'' I gave them the weirdest look and asked them what they were singing? They said it was from a wrestling CD for the wrestler HHH. Well I told them they were wrong and that the actual song tiltle was..''My Time''..they didn't care they still went on singing''Lock Tide''.
They even sang ''Take the last train to Pottsville'' instead of ''Take the last train to Clarksville'' by the Monkees...I gave up and just let them make a fool of themselves...(LOL)
