I was convinced until maybe five years ago that the end of the Christmas carol "Silent Night" was saying that the Baby Jesus was sleeping in heavenly peas, not peace. I couldn't figure out what God had put in those peas that made them so good and nice to sleep in. To this day my father sings, "sleep in heavenly peas and corn," because at my house we always have corn with our peas.

I was in the car with my dad and the song "Move Along" from All American Regects came on. My dad was loving it and starting singing along. "MOW THE LAWN, MOW THE LAWN LIKE I KNEW YA WOULD!"

Instead of "MOVE ALONG MOVE ALONG"

The song: Village People’s “Macho Man”

Lyric: Possess the strength and confidence, life's a steal,

I heard “with zesty strip and confidence,” life’s a steal instead

Lyric: He's a special person in anybody's land.

I heard, “he’s a special butt sock” in anybody’s land instead

When I was a kid, I thought Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl started with "Hey there amigos!". The line is action "Hey where did we go". I always wondered who the amigos were!

I was convinced for years that the ohio express record 'yummee' went 'yummee yummee yummee, i've got bugs in my tummy'. It wasn't until I was about 35 that I realised my error.

I thought "having been some days in preparation, a splendid time is guaranteed for all" in Being For The Benefit of Mister Kite was, "some beans, some raisins, preparation, a splendid time is guaranteed for all."

When I got Bob Dylan's Freewheelin' album (around age 9), I thought the line in Honey Just Allow Me One More Chance that goes, "I'm lookin' for a woman needs a worried man" was "I'm lookin' for a woman needs a one-eyed man".

When I first got The Beatles' Abbey Road album, I heard the line "Sleeps in a hole in the road" in Mean Mr. Mustard as "Sheeps in a Hollywood toad"

When I was little, I thought the lyric in The Beatles' "Something" that goes, "I don't wanna leave her now / you know I believe and how" went, "I don't wanna leave her now / you know I believe in cow."

My mom had recently explained to me that George Harrison practiced Hinduism, thus I thought it was perfectly logical for him to write a song about a cow.

I used to think that the line, "She takes just like a woman" in Bob Dylan's 'Just Like A Woman' was, "She tastes just like a woman."

Needless to say I was appalled at the fact that one of my favorite singers had a taste for human flesh.

You know 'Are you the one' by the presets? I thought he was saying, 'hoooow, are you girl!!!'
And I used to sing it very loudly with my friends. They never even mentioned anything. They all think I'm a spaz, i suppose.

Theres that song by The Offspring that goes, 'And feels like Heavens so far away'
When I was a kid I thought he was saying
'Kevins so far away'
I just thought he was missing his friend. When I told my sister she almost killed herself laughing

Remember that Madness song "Our House"? When they said "Our house, in the middle of our street" I used to believe that the house was literally in the middle of traffic. I wondered, did the house have a big opening where cars went through and then exited through the back?

I always thought the lyrics to "Wannabe" by The Spice Girls were

"If you wannabe my lover, you gotta take off my pants." I was like 8 and sung it this way and my mother heard and about had a cow, but that's how my best friend sang it so I believed it to go that way.

I misheard the lyrics to Fallout Boy's "Sugar, We're Going Down," as:

We're going round round in a merrygoround
And sugar we're going down swinging
I'll be your number one with a bullet
A loaded gun calling,
cock it and pull it

One day I overheard my brother (about 17yrs old at the time) ask my dad for a copy of "that Elton John song...you know...uhhh...hold me closer I'm tired of dancin'."

I still laugh out loud at that one. I mean come on, it makes sense right? Yep.
