I used to think that the lyrics to "Big Ol' Jet Airliner" by Steve Miller Band went: "Big, old Jed had a lighthouse..." I thought somehow that this "Jed" was the same Jed from the 'Beverly Hillbillies', and that he was so rich, he bought his own lighthouse. To this day, I still sing those lyrics.

I thought that the lyrics to The Rocket Summers, Brat Pack were,

"This goober, this hat, my friend's at second bat, and I've got to admit, sometimes he's pretty quick."

It's really,

"This ain't where it's at, my friends'll second that, and I got to admit, sometimes it's pretty sad."

LOOOL.

I use to believe that the lyrics of the song 'kick a little' by Little Texas actually said 'you've go to kiggle-it and cause a stir' instead of 'you've got to kick a little'. The fact that the song was named kick a little never struck me. It wasn't until I was a Junior in college and singing in my car with all my friends that I was corrected...and really embarassed...personally I think kiggle-it-up sounded better anyway!

In the song "Holiday" by Green Day, the real lyric is "Kill all the f*gs that don't agree" but I used to think it was "Kill all the fats that donut crave!" And it made me want donuts. Also, in their son "Waiting" The lyric was "Better count your lucky stars" and I thought it was "Better count the non-gay stars"

when i was a child i always thought the the first line of the song 'run to me' by The Bee Gees was ''if ever you have got brain in your heart''! i used to think it's a song by count dracula (god knows why) who asks everybody to run to him whenever somebody has 'brain in their heart'!

Remember the theme song from the Winnie the Pooh eighties/early nineties? It goes, "Pooh bear, Winnie the Pooh bear, searchin' for fun, oh, won't you take me please? Pooh bear, I know he's out there. Rumbly tumbly, climb in a honey tree," and then there is another verse that starts. To this day I don't know what the real words are, but when I was little, and even now, it sounds so me like, "How could this cancerous, be so advancerous? it does this now and again." then back to normal "And when you're alone and there's nobody home, it's nice to be able to count on a friend like Pooh bear."

SO.. the man singing the pooh bear song is cancerous?

In the song 'Just Like Jesse James" by Cher, when she says "Think your so bad driving women folk wild"...I thought it was "Think you're so bad driving women f***ing wild"...and thought how can they play this on the radio and not edit it!

In the song 'Ironic'...the line "An old man turned ninety-eight"...my boyfriend thought it was "Milkman turned ninety-eight"...and also "Free ride when you've already paid"...he thought was "Creamy white on your roll everyday"...what's ironic about that? HA!

Much to my shame I was a Shakin' Stevens fan as a kid, and he had this song called "A Letter to You"..and I spent my childhool wondering what on earth "oh oh you don't know that a tiggarain bar and sent it off in a letter to you" meant, until I heard the song years later and worked out he was in fact singing "oh oh you don't know that I took a rainbow, and sent it off in a letter to you"!!! what a twit....!!!

There's this song by the Animals called "Spill the wine and take that pearl" but because the singer fails to sing intelligably-it always sounded to me like "Do My Tic Tac Toe" and near the end more like "Tickle My Tic Tac Toe" I still can't hear it properly.

She said "what?"
He: "You know, where you all hold your hands up in an arc."

Early this year, when Apologize was repeatedly being played on the radio, I kept on hearing it and singing it as "It's shoelace to 'pologize" And I'd ask what "'pologize" meant to all my friends and they'd give me funny looks. Haha. :P I'd also imagine the music video with a bunch of dancing shoelace. :))
