The song "The Girl is on to you" by Bette Midler has a line
"She's grown much wiser than you realize," which I heard as "She's grown much wider than you realize."

Bon Jovi was a huge hit when I 13 and I used to think that they lyrics to "Wanted Dead or Alive" were...."on a steering horse I ride", my husband informed me 2 years ago that I had been singing it all wrong for 17 years.

Anyone remember this hysterical Bilbo-Baggins-song done by Leonard Nimoy? At one point he says "to help some dwarves get back their gold" and it totally sounds like "help some whores" I used to wonder what whores were doing in a song about Hobbits, and even now I hear whores instead of dwarves every time!

I must've thought the song " Blue " was written posthumously by Eiffel65 because I was certain the lyrics claimed " I'm blue I was beat up and died... "

Although I now know the lyrics are " I'm blue ba-da-be-ba-da-bi " in the song Blue, I still can't help singing what I'd always thought Eiffel65 sang... " I'm blue I got beat up and died"

Hearing the theme song every week, I I thought The Who were threatening some kind of extreme supplies embargo on C S I Miami when they menacingly sang " W O N T get food A G A I N ! " .

There was a song I misheard when I was really little. I don't know the title, but I thought it went like this:
I tut (like king tut) you once, I tut you twice
A walnut cold at any advice
(That's all I remember. I wrote down my wrong lyrics somewhere, and it was at least the whole chorus.) I always assumed it would make more sense when I got older. And it did, but only when I found out it went like this:
I touch you once, I touch you twice
I won't let go at any price
(at least, I think--my hearing's better now, but I've never really looked it up.) I don't think that would have made sense to the little kid me either ;)

I used to believe Madonna was singing 'poppadom peach' rather than 'papa don't preach'! I found out my mistake when i sang it really loudly and got laughed at by my friends

I used to believe the words to my dad's favorite song(Mysterious Ways, by U2) were, "Shamu the mysterious whale!" Instead of "She moves in mysterious ways!"

I thought the line "Gina works the diner all day," in Bon Jovi's Livin' On A Prayer was "Gina wants to die of old age,". My friend thought it was that too ...

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."

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 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)
