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.

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,
'EEEEMO WOMAN!'
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.

Hilarious. .

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?"

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!!

Her name in Rio and she dances in the sand were the actual lyrics to the Duran Duran song that I used to sing along with. But...I sang slightly different words.... her name is Rio and she doesn't understand. Poor confused Rio!

You know that Keley Clarkson song Behind These Hazel Eyes. When I was 8 I thought she was saying Jesus Christ instead of behind these hazel eyes. Months later when I bought Kidz Bop 8 I realized my mistake. Before that,I thought it was weird she saying Jesus Christ, I'm 10 now. I hate Kidz Bop now.

Back when I was younger, I got very into Ricky Martin music. Remember his song, "Shake Your Bon-Bon?" Well, there's a line in there where he says,

"I see your silhouette,
Are you my Juliet?"

However, when I heard this line, it got all slurred together in my ears, and I heard it as,

"I see your silhouette,
Are you magillient?"

"Magillient" isn't a real word by any stretch of the imagination, but since I was convienced that that was what he was singing, I tried to look it up in the dictionary. The closest word I could find was "malignant," which according to the dictionary ment "a life-threatening cancerous tumor."

Thus, I believed that Ricky Martin had some kind of strange cancer fetish.

A 20-something friend of mine would hear this line from Jon Sebastian's "Welcome Back" (theme to Welcome Back, Kotter):
"Your dreams were your ticket out"
But she thought he was singing:
"Your jeans are torn. Check it out!"

A few years ago, when I met Sinatra's "LA is my lady", I thought he sang "I leave behind the father of myself", while the correct line is "I leave behind a part of myself". That may not make sense in English, but I'm Brazilian and my English was even poorer at that time.

In the song "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen, there's a part where he goes "Bite-ah the dust-ah!!' really fast, and once I was listening to it in the car with my mom, and I said, "doesn't it sound like he's saying 'I am adopted!'?"
Then (and I don't think I'll ever forget this) my mom laughed dismissively and said, "That's what he IS saying."
I still have no idea why my mom would think he was saying 'I am adopted!", especially since it makes absolutely no sense in the context of the song.

In Edwin McCain's song "I'll Be" There's a part where he goes "I'll be captivated". As a kid, I always thought he was saying "I'll be Captain Vader". I envisioned a guy dressing up like Darth Vader in an effort to impress the girl of his dreams.
