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.

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.

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 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.

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.
