misheard lyricsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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
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."
"This ain't where it's at, my friends'll second that, and I got to admit, sometimes it's pretty sad."
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"
In the Tears For Fears song it goes:
"Shout, Shouts, Let it all out,"
When I was 5, I thought the lyrics were:
"Shout, Shout, La De Do Dout."
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'!
I thought when i was like nine in the song allstar by smashmuth went like this.
Hey no your a rockstar,get the show on get laid.
So when i sung that in front of my family and friends they made me wash my mouth with soap.
Not my fault lol
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!
"Big "Ol Jet Had A Light On" aka Big Ol Jet Airliner - Steve Miller Band
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.
