misheard lyricsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
The Shirelles' "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow"
Correct lyric: Can I believe the magic of your sighs
What I hear: Can I believe the magic of your size
You know the song by the bangles called "Walk like an egyptian?"
I used to dance around singing, "Walk like an edemption"
Jungle Love by The Steve Miller Band goes, "Jungle Love, Drivin' Me Mad, Makin' Me Crazy.."
My husband thought it was, "Chug A Lug, The Strawberry Man, Makin' Me Crazy..." when he was a child.
I used to think that the song "inside out" by eve 6 and "i am the walrus" by the beatles were the same song. i realize now how incredibly different both songs and bands are.
Eurythmics, I think, I was abiut 9 or so,
one song has the sentence: "You place a chill in my heart" I always heard: "You replace Jim in my heart"
"You know I like to keep my cheating stragety" for Blind Melon's "No Rain". Yes, I know that "stragety" is not a word. I'm still not certain of the actual lyrics because my cousin told me it was "You know I'd like to keep my jeans dry today" and I just read on here that it's "You know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today", either of which makes more sense than what I always thought.
This isn't my belief, but rather my younger cousin's- we were all driving down to the beach, and my aunt was playing her Beatles CD on the way down. The song "I am the Walrus" came on- on the part where it said "Semolina Pilchard, climbing up the Eiffel Tower", my cousin thought he was singing, "Sitting on a cornflake, looking at the Eiffel Tower" The funnier part was, I didn't know any better either, so I totally believed her! I didn't find it out until today when I was listening to the song, and decided to look up the lyrics for this one part that sounded weird to me...
When my husband was a child, he thought that the line from the Heart song "Crazy on You" was, "Let me throw gravy, gravy on you."
Instead of the real lyrics - "Let me go crazy, crazy on you..."
I always thought that Zuccero's song "Senza una dona" was actually "Sence of a woman"
That the lyrics "She drives me crazy, and I can't help myself" was really "She drives me crazy, and I can't have my snack".
For years I happily sang along to George Michael's careless whisper with real gusto "I'm never gonna dance again, can't you see I've got no rhythm" until I heard my auntie belting out I'm never gonna dance again, these two feet have got no rhythm" after much disagreement as to who's version was correct we discovered that we were both wrong and it is in fact guilty feet have got no rhythm. We still stick to our own versions though as we prefer them. If that wasn't bad enough I used to love the line in Micheal Jackson's You are not alone which goes: I can hear your prayers, Your burgers are the best.
I was disappointed when I eventully learned the real lyrics as I thought mine was better.
Around Christmas every year my Mom liked to play the album by "Boney M" and on the tape was a song called "Feliz Navidad". Well for years my sister and I always thought that they were singing "At least Mommy died" for the chorus. We could never figure out why they were so happy that their Mom had died and why it was a Christmas song.
I have two:
I thought "I'll write a symphony just for you and me" in Elton John's 'Are You Ready For Love' was "I'll ride a cell phone in, just for you and me".
Also, I thought "Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me" in 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' by Green Day was "Sometimes I wish someone will pillow fight me"!
Oh oh, I'm an alien, I'm a little alien...
In Beyonce's 'Irreplaceable' I thought she said 'In the closet that's my stuff. Yes sir i just farted, please dont touch.'
When i was about 9 me and my older cousin, who was 13 at the time were driving home from school in her mother's car when the song "Im Horny" came on.
The lyrics are "Im horny,horny,horny,horny,sooo horny, im horny,horny,horny tonight!"
Unfortunately i didnt know what horny meant and assumed they were singing "Honey".
I proceeded to sing along, and was totally offended when my aunt and cousin burst into hysterics.
When my sister was about 6 (she's 10 now), the George Strait song, "Cross My Heart" came on, and she started out with the lines "Our love is untraditional" (the real word is "unconditional"), and I thought it was hysterical. I think it should be sung that way as an anthem for alternative lifestyles.
I thought "She's About a Mover" was "Get a-buddy move on".
Thank you!. I also still think it's "you and me and leslie"..
It's still driving me crazy after 30 years
I thought the madonna song "see the way you love me" was about a blind person who couldn't see himself that loved madonna.
