misheard lyricsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
you know the song "cheer up sleepy jean_____a daydream believer and a homecoming queen"? I thought the words were: " cheer up sweet pea gee, ______ a daydreaming beaver and I hope you are clean"
A little while ago I went on vacation to Las Vegas. My parents could only find out how to turn the rental car's radio to one station, and it was the crappy 80s and 90s station.
We were driving around the strip looking for some restaurant, and I was bored out of my skull when suddenly a song came on that I thought went,
So I started laughing hysterically, picturing the typical "emo kid" sterotype and the band ELO singing about it. My parents were like, "What are you laughing about?"
So I told them, expecting them to be like "Oh yeah! Isn't this song funny?"
They actually just corrected me. Turns out it was actually "EEEEVIL WOMAN!"
They have NEVER let me forget this.
Summer of 1972...the song is "Too Late To Turn Back Now' by The Cornelius Brothers and Sister Rose.
In the bridge of the song, one "brother" sings the most convoluded lyric in the world...
He sings and my sister and both heard him warble this: "I wouldn't mind da if I nooped do really love me doo".
The advent of PCs and the Interent and posting of lyrics revealed that said brother was actually singing, "I wouldn't mind it, if I knew she really loved me too".
Well maybe, but this one Cornelius brother did it with marbles and mayonaise in his mouth.
Also in the oringal early 60
s son "Last Kiss", listen for the part where the soprano singing in the background goes flat and her voice falls and trails off.
After the lyrics..."that I heard last"..
And they actually left that in the master recording.
You know the song, "Groovin'" by the Rascals?
I was convinced that a specific part of the lyric was/is..."that would be ecstasy..you and me and Leslie"..
I kept thinking, "Who in the hell is Leslie?"
i always thought it was Grape Balls of Fire instead of Great Balls of Fire
dirty deeds done dirt cheap beacame slighty twisted and more confusing...as a child I sang along to the song... Dirty d's and the dung-dirt chief. I'm laughing right now just thinking about that! But the worst part is..even though I know the REAL lyrics I still hear the wrong ones!!
