I remember listening to the radio in the car as a child when the hymn "How Great Thou Art" came on. Instead of "how great thou art", I thought it was "I'll break your heart."

While singing Christmas carols as a child, I was confused by "Angels We Have Heard on High." Instead of "in excelsis Deo," I thought it was "in Aunt Chelsea's stable."

Remember the song from the '60's, "Beauty's Only Skin Deep"? Until I was 20, I thought the title was, "Do You Wanna See Me". I thought I was showing my worldliness and maturity when I sang it one day...that is, until my 31 year old friend laughed himself off a sofa while correcting me.

I used to believe that the lyrics "my son John" really were "mice on John" in the nursery rhyme, "Diddle, diddle dumpling, my son John, went to bed with his stockings on..." I found this to be a disturbing way to sleep. And I still have trouble remembering the real words. "Mice on John" just flows off the tongue... :)

My parents really liked Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. So imagine my mom's amusement when, in the car at age 2, I asked her to put on "Running Down The Drain". It was really "Running Down a Dream", but... I liked mine better, and I still do. =P

Elvis Presley - Suspicious Minds
"Weīre caught in a trap, we canīt walk out,..."
I heard:
"We call it fraud, we canīt walk out,..."
still sing it like that, too.

As a big Culture Club fan, I often get lyrics mixed up.
Take for example Miss Me Blind:
Bet you got a good gun
Bet you know how to have some fun and then
You turn it around on me because
I'm better than the rest of the men

I heard it as:
Bet you got a good bun
Bet you know how to have some fun in bed...

I figured that it was just another song about Jon Moss and his buns.

In David Bowie's song Life On Mars, I thought the lyrics were:

Sane Lords fighting in the dance hall
Oh man, look at those gay men go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the law man
Felling up the wrong guy
Oh man, wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best-selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It kind of makes sense.
o.o

I used to sing the lyrics to Robbie Williams's Angels 'Through it all, she offers me me protection, a lot of love and erection'... it kind of makes sense but the real lyrics are a lot nicer

I always though the lyrics to Home on the Range' were home, home on the range, where the deer and the cantaloupes play... I never did get that

There is a church song called "Companions on a Journey." It goes: "We are companions on a journey, eating pread and sharing life."

When I yas little I thought (and sang) "We are camels on a journey eating bread and cherry pie."

In "All Star," the line goes: "All that glitters is gold, only shootin' stars break the mold." (or something like that)

My friend thought: "All the rivers are gold, only shootin' stars wait for morn."

The first line of "Sweet Home Alabama" is "These wheels keep on turnin." For the longest time I thought it was "Sweet, sweet home school Bob Simon."

I used to believe that in the some "You owe me an IOU" by Hot Hot Heat that the lyric
"You owe me an IOU"
was actually
"Don't go to pacoville"
One day I heard a guy say "Lets go to pacoville!" to his dog.
you can imagine my reaction.

I used to think the song Cotton Eye Joe Said "where did you come from where did you go where did you go"
NOT where did you come from cotton eye Joe...

I never got where he keeps going and comming. I remember my dads friend had a party with a DJ and my dad tried to explain the whole DJ concept and sent me on my merry way to ask the poor DJ the song I wanted " Where'd you come from" which logically was the name of the song that they constantly say "where'd you come from where'd you go where'd you come from where'd you go" the best was when the guy asked me to sing it cuz he never heard of it.....yea that was bad I was like 13 lol

That in 'We Didn't Start the Fire', the line 'no we didn't light it' was 'well, we did ignite it'.

I still think that it's a better line.

I used to believe some lyrics in Culture Club's, "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me," were:

Bit by lust without a reason

when it's really

This boy loves without a reason.

I used to think the lyrics to Dancing Queen by Abba were "you can dance, you can die, having the time of your life." I used to remember thinking that although dancing was fun I wouldn't want to die from doing it too much
