In the song, "Puff the Magic Dragon," I always thought that Jackie Paper brought Puff ceiling wax.

When I was a kid, my teen-aged sister and her girlfriend would sing the chorus of "Woman, Woman" by Gary Puckett & the Union Gap as "woman, have you got Gene on your mind?" (Her friend was going out with this one guy but also liked a guy named Gene.) It was at least 20 years later that I finally realized the line was "woman, have you got cheating on your mind?" And even though it's been 20 years since that realization, I still sing it with "Gene" in the verse.

In the Avril Lavigne song "I Can Do Better" she sings:
"I will drink as much lemoncello as I can..."
But for a while I did not know that lemoncello is a kind of liquor, did not even know that it is a word.
So I heard it as:
"I will drink as much lemon jello as I can..."
I spent hours wondering how a person could drink jello.

So when I first heard the song "I Will Follow You Into the Dark" by Death Cab for Cutie, there was a line where I wasn't so sure what he was saying. I heard:
"If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the nose on their Vatican seasides"
Eventually I looked this up on a lyrics website. Turns out the actual lyrics are:
"If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs"
whoops.

The song sk8er boi by Avril Lavigne used to be one of my favorites. Except there was this one line where I heard:
"Sorry girl but you missed out
What the f*** that boy's mine now"
And actually, it goes:
"Sorry girl but you missed out
Well, tough luck that boy's mine now"
oops.

In the Green Day song "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" there's a line that goes:
"My shadow's the only one who walks beside me"
I thought it was:
"No child's the only one who walks beside me"
I could not quite figure this one out. I thought it might mean that the only one who walked beside him was an adult...or maybe not...i was very confused until i found out the correct lyrics.

In Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", there's a line that goes:
Sometimes, I wish someone out there would find me
I heard:
Sometimes, I wish some other girl would find me
I thought he didn't like his girlfriend.

Until 30 seconds ago, I believed that in the Avril Lavigne song "Things I'll Never Say", she was singing:
"If I could see what I wanna see
I wanna see you go down on me..." I found out that the words are actually:
"If I could see what I wanna see
I wanna see you go down on ONE KNEE..." Silly me.

in the song "take my breath away" by berlin, i thought that the lyrics was "took my brother away..." and i was so sad because someone took her brother away...
I'm a brother of three sisters, and I was also sad because of what would happen if someone took me from them - they will be sad... :(

Remember that song, "Love Potion # 9"

"But when I kissed a cop down on 34th and Vine."

I always thought (until I was like 19!!!) he said,

"But when I kissed a cow and got it ready for a ride"

In the song 'Sugar, We're Going Down' by Fallout Boy, the refrain goes:

'We're going down, down,
In an earlier round,
And sugar we're going down swinging,
I'll be your number one with a bullet,
A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it"

Until today, I thought it was

"We're going down, down,
And we're swinging around
And sugar we're going down swinging
I'll be your number one with a bullet
A Lolicon complex
Cock-eating bullet"

Silly me.
