Crazy stuff, eh?
well im still a kid but on the song i dont wanna be in love when it said i dont wanna be in love i thought it said i dont wanna be a lump
Okay, you know the song Apologize by Timbaland? Some of the real lyrics go like this:
Didn't think I'd turn around, and say...
That it's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late.
Well, I thought it said this:
Didn't think I'd turn around, and say hey
That it's too late to palogize (?), it's too late
I said it's too late to pathogize, it's too late.
me being a confused person i never got the lyrics right... or the purpose to any of the lyrics... but anyway, there is a song called things we go through by: hawk nelson and part of the lyrics go.. stand up for what you beleive and shout to.. but i thought they went... stand up for what you beleive is jollytrue... now since this is a canadian band and im from the u.s. i thought canadians had a different set of words then us... like they say eh alot ive heard... so i thought jollytrue was also another word of theirs.. to this day i still dont sing it the right way... its to hard to learn any differently for me!!!
Recently my sister told me that in Fallout Boy's 'The Take Over The Break's Over' lyrics were actually 'Flash flash flash, photography', not 'Scratch scratch scratch, for tiger-people'. We both though that was pretty funny.
I used to believe that the song saying the line "Jehoviah Jira, my provider, your grace is suffecient for me" that it was "Ching Chong McGiver, my provider, you grace is a fishy for me"
In the Wings song "Listen To What The man Said" it says "the wonder of it all, baby". When I was little I thought it said "don't want to rub it off baby"
Hey it made pretty good sense to me at the time! LOL
I used to think the lyrics for sexy can I was "...It's so cold out homie, let me go and get my camera. All I wanna know is sexy can I..."
I used to think that the song 'Sexy Back' by Justin Timberlake for the lyrics on the chorus i thought it was 'Go hippy go with it, Go hippy go with it' instead of the actual lyrics.... 'Go head be gone with it, Go head be gone with it' I stopped thinking that until my brother asked me what i was singing then he told me i was wrong... i was devastated :p
When I recently first heard Incubus's "A Kiss to Send us off" I was convinced they were telling the listener to "Kiss an Elephant!"
The lyrics are "She was looking kinda dumb with her finger an her thumb in the shape of an L on her forehead." and I thought they were "She was looking kinda numb with her finger in her thumb in the shape of an elf" Lol.
when my mom was young she thought that "our lips our sealed" was sang "eyes of cecile". her latest misheard lyric is the new song by the pussycat dolls, "when i grow up" the part that says "i wanna have groupies" , she swears it says " i wanna have boobies" lol but that has been mistaken by more than just her
As a kid, my dad would play a bunch of Nirvana cds. I always thought the line in Smells Like Teen Spirit that said "Here we are now, entertain us" was "Here we are now, in containers".
I always pictured Kurt Cobain asleep in some sort of test tube, sleeping, like in a container for scientific study or something.
When I was in 1st grade we would sing My Country, Tis of Thee every day after saying the pledge of allegiance. All through 1st grade I believed one line in the song-"of thee, I sing"- was actually "of B.I.C." I had no idea what that stood for, but since everyone else seemed to know, I thought I should keep my mouth shut. Once I saw the letters b-i-c on my dad's cigarette lighter, but instead of being a tipoff that my lyrics were wrong, I assumed it must just mean the lighter was made in the USA. It wasn't until 2nd grade when the words to the song were printed on the first page of our social studies books that I discovered my error- and felt like an idiot.
When I was younger, I always swore that the Marilyn Manson song "The Beautiful People" really said "the beautiful meatball."
I have a cousin who... isn't all that bright. Well, she was listening to my iPod in the car, which was playing "Losing Grip" by Avril Lavigne.
The line was:
"I was left to cry, there waitin' outside there, grinning with the lost stare."
My cousin's version:
"I was left to cry, there waitin' outside, Cher, grinning with a nig*er."
I was just staring at her... that wasn't even remotely close!
I used to believe in a My Chemical Romance song, that there was a hidden, racist message.
The actual lyric:
"I wear this on my sleeve."
I stupidly heard:
"I work you like my slave."
I used to believe that the Beatles "Let it Be" were singing "letter B" because I had heard that latter version on Sesame Street. I remember that I got into an argument with my mother over it.
well, in micheal jackson's song the lyrics say,
"Billie Jean, is not my lover"
I thought it was,
"Billie Jean, is not a motherfucker."
The song: Do They Know It's Christmas Time
The lyric: Feed the World
What I heard: Vi-vo, whoa, oh-oh-oh-oh
