I used to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and frequently sang along to the theme tune. I thought the end of the song was "Toodle pop" - as in a really twee english way of saying goodbye. It actually says "Turtle Power"! I was in fits of laughter for weeks!

When I was younger, we had a record player in my basement. My brother and I would listen to the Beegees, because they were out favourite out of all the records down there.

When I use to listen to staying alive I always thought the lyrics opposed to the actual ones

"Music loud and women warm.
I've been kicked around since I was born."

Were:

"You can tell a Willy Wonka,
Saying Gingerale, no time to talk."

I find it pretty hilarious since, that is absolutley not close to it. Up to a few weeks ago when I googled the lyrics, I truthfully had no idea what they were- and believed they were somewhere close to my misheard lyrics.

On "This Ain't a Scene (it's an arms race)" by My Chemical Romance...

"This thing this thing it's a god damn arse face"
I knew this probably wasn't right but thought it was better than the real words. It also fits in with how the first line "I am an arms dealer" sounds like "I am an arse feeler".

My father, as a young boy, misunderstood some of the lyrics in Roger Millers 'King of the Road':

Actual words: 'Trailer for sale or rent...'
He heard: 'Trailer for sailorettes (as in, female sailors!)

I thought that in the song "Last night i had the strangest dream" that swords and guns and UNICORNS were scattered on the ground. this made perfect sense because unicorns have sharp horns which could be used as weapons!

I was about 10 when I started to get into theatre. My grandparents took me and my cousin to go see Mamma Mia! on Broadway. I liked it so much that I got the soundtrack. In the actual song titled "Mamma Mia!", Donna sings, "I can't count all the times I've cried over you." Up until a couple weeks ago, I though she was saying "I camped out all the times I cried over you." I pictured a scenario in which she couldn't even sleep in the same house with the guy.

I used to think that there was a line in the Box Tops song "Cry Like A Baby" that was "When I think about the good lucky caveman, I cry like a baby." (The line actually was "When I think about the good love you gave me, I cry like a baby.")

It made perfect sense in my head--the singer envied cavemen since they got to live in a world unsullied by pollution. I made up my mind that the song was an environmental message.

I used to believe, that when you had to sing a song, it didn't matter if you screwed up the lyrics with something you THINK souned like the words, because if YOU thought it sounded like it, everyone else wouldn't notice 'cause it souned similar.

Oh how wrong i was. I found out that is not true after i sang science i walked away from school,
when it should have been SINCE i walked away from YOU.

How embarrasing (sp?)

Intewwups-choo.

I thought that in Ride The Wings Of Pestilence by From First to Last was

'I'll drag your body to the ground'.

'I'll drag your body to the car.'

And the same song

When it was actually

'As blood races down my arm'

When I was in elementary school we used to listen to 60's 70's and 80's songs and I thought the lyrics for "Hey Mickey" were "you take me by the paw when you take me by the hand instead of "you take me by the heart when you take me by the hand"

One day while rideing in the car with my 2 friends the song "Unwritten" by Natasha Benningfield came on. So we all started to sing along. As i started to listen to my friend singing next to me. I realized that she was saying:


"Release Your Intermissions,
Feel The Rain On Your Skin."

Its Inabitions, not Intermissions.
