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.

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.

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"

In the Tears For Fears song it goes:

"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'!

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!
