Swedish country and pop singer Kikki Danielsson scored a 1986-1987 hit with the song "Papaya Coconut" (which she also recorded once again with Dr. Alban in 1998). I used to belive she sang "Pattaya Coconut", refering to Pattaya in Thailand, famous for it's child sex tourism (Actually it's true that the song lyrics refer to holiday travels to warm places).
When I was younger, like around nine or ten years old, I loved Duran Duran. In the song "Save A Prayer", there's a lyric that goes "Some people call it a one-night stand, but we can call it paradise". I thought Simon LeBon was singing about a night stand, like the one by his bed where the lamp is. For years I was confused by why he thought a night stand was paradise, but I figured he was rich and had bought the coolest night stand ever. Wouldn't that be paradise!
For the longest time, I thought the song "Paperback Writer," by the Beatles was actually called "Paperback Right Turn."
Kentucky HeadHunters Song "Dumas Walker" I thought the lead lyric was "Were all going down to do Ms Walker..."
Tom Cochrane's song Big League says "Sometimes at night, I can hear the ice crack."
For a long time, I believed it was "Sometimes at night, I can hear my ass crack."
The next line (and this is true) adds to this by saying "It sounds like thunder and rips through my back."
Oh Tom... There's medicine that can help with that.
I first thought Taylor Swift's "Teardrops on My Guitar" said Teardrops on Rocky Top. And I would sing it wrong, very loudly, in my car.
I thought the words to Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana were "hey, wait, I got a real gold plate," instead of "hey, wait, I got a new complaint."
I used to think that Billie Jean Song by micheal jackson went "Billie Jean has got my glove"
But its really "Billie Jean has got my Love"
I thought David Archuleta's song Crush said "where this sneaker go" instead of "where this thing can go".
I used to think Michael Jackson's song 'Liberian Girl' was 'Librarian Girl'. I quite liked Michael Jackson's admiring of the quieter woman.
The lyrics later on in the song seemed to fit in with my belief as when it says 'Naku Penda Piya - Naku Taka Piya- MPENSIWE', I thought it was 'Naku Penda Piya - Naku Taka Piya - MY PEN'S AWARE . (Librarians use pens alot)
When I was young, my hearing was much worse. I always heard the Paul Simon song "Call Me Al" on the radio and until I was 10 and found out the real name of the song, I always thought it was called "Cornmeal", and wondered why a song about corn was so popular.
My best friend used to sing the line in Garth Brooks' "Much too young to feel this damn old" where he says "lonely women and bad booze" as "lonely women and baboons". She did that until we were 17 and I heard her and started cracking up!
The song "Chasing Pavements" by Adele goes like this:
"Should I give up, or should I just keep chasing pavements?"
For the longest time, I thought it went like this:
"Should I give up, or should I just keep chasing penguins?"
When I was younger and my friends came over I wantd to act cool and know all the words to a song they liked soo when they played it and they were singing I would say the last word of every line and it would look like i was singing it
What is funny about this is that now when my other friend come over not the same one thought she does the same thing but she thinks i don't notice it but i do!! :p
I used to believe that the kids poem "finders keepers, losers weepers" really said "finders keepers, losers sweepers." I figured that Cinderella had a hard life, and she did a lot of sweeping!
I used to think the lyrics in Madonna's 'Material Girl' was 'Cos everybody's livin in a material world, and i am mom material girl' I just thought it meant she was the leader or 'mother' in this material world of hers :D
When I was younger I didn't have the greatest hearing. I would sing songs with the lyrics I thought I heard and add my own rationale to why they would be saying these things. For instance, I thought Sinead O'Connor's song "Nothing Compares" was Compincon Pears. An exotic fruit she was handing out. "Compincon pears to you!"
I believed this far past the age I should have.
When I was growing up in Southern California, there was this used car lot that would play commercials on TV. They always started out with "This is Cal Worthington and his dog Spot." Then the theme song would start. For years I thought the chorus of the song was "pussycow, pussycow, pussycow" instead of "go see Cal, go see Cal, go see Cal". For years I wonder what the heck a pussycow was.
When I was in the 8th grade, there was a
fairly popular girl in school who thought that
George Harrison's song "I've got my mind set
on you" was actually "Wake up I might sit on
you" yeah, she was blonde...(no offense to
the intelligent towheads!)
When my cousin and I were teenagers, she
used to think that the Stacy Q song "Two of
Hearts" was actually "2 poptarts". mmm, yum!
