In the song "Smooth Operator" by Sade, as a kid I heard....

"No need to ahhsk he's a smooth carburetor.."

I guess the word carburetor was probably heard from my dad who often talked about cars, fixing engines, etc. So I must've plugged the word into the song. I was probably 8 or 9 so what the hell would a smooth operator be? I learned the correct lyrics when I was older.

In The Monkees song "I`m a believer", Micky Dolenz sings "When I needed sunshine, I got rain". It really sounds like he sings "what I need is sunshine on my brain". Sunshine on brain, eeeew!

When my mom was a little kid she heard a song called "I"ll See You Tonight" a lot. She always wondered what the guy singing meant when he sang,
"I'm not talkin' 'bout the linen..."
It was not until college that she was told it was actually
"I'm not talkin' 'bout movin' in..."

i used to always mishear the bridge and the chorus of the Fall Out Boy song 'sugar we're going down' as:

we're always sniffing ink and sniffing
for the roll tear
we're going down down
do do do do da
do do do do do do da da
number god complex
cocked it and pull it

when it is in fact:

we're always sleeping in and sleeping
for the wrong team
we're going dow dow
ina n earlier round
sugar we're going down swinging
i'll be your number one with the bullet
loaded god complex
cock it and pull it.

for a while i always thought the singer just got bored and decided to change it

Until my sister saw the Star Spangled Banner written down on one of those paper flags that were passed out after 9/11 she thought the line went.. Oh say can you see by the donserly light... She was so suprised that it was actually Dawn's Early light. She just thought that the donserly light was a type of light that they used back when the song was written. (she was 18 at the time :oP )

you know the song "Lithium" by Nirvana? when i first heard it in the part where he says "I miss you, I'm not gonna crack" i thought he said "I miss you I'm not gonna CRAP"! and if that wasn't enough, i spent the next year or so terrified that if i missed someone enough i wouldn't be able to poop! bear in mind that i would've been 4 or 5 at the time

I used to believe that the lyrics to "Linger" by the Cranberries were not, "Do you have to let it linger?" but "Do you have to, Lennon Linger?"

I thought in the 90's when I was younger that in Beck's song "Loser" he was telling me different ways to kill myself.

I thought the beatles' lyric "I'll give you everything I've got for a little peice of mind" was "I'll give you everything I've got for a little peice of pie." I always wondered why he wanted pie so much.

Yesterday I was in the cafeteria of my college campus. They were playing some kind of music video channel. They played this song that was in a foreign language. I know it didn't say this, but I heard the singers holler, "Rolaids" like three times and then sing a short phrase and then repeat the chorus. I thought that was hillarious, so I started making up words to the other part that went like this:
Rolaids, Rolaids, Rolaids, that's the way you spell relief.

On Death Cab for Cutie's expo 86 (or whatever it's called), I thought the line, "as if you held in your hand a smoking gun, and on the floor lay the one you loved" was really "as if you held in your hand a smoking gun, and on the four-legged one you loved."

Also when it said "familiar resolve" I thought it said "familiary's song". Not quite sure what I thought a "familiary" was...

Not so much a prayer as a carol, but a friend of mine has a little girl, and, as children are want to do, she has made the best sense of the lyrics of a certain Christmas Carol that she can. The song in question is 'Away in a Manger'. She's got the 'Away in a Manger' part, but then she thinks it goes on:

The Little Malteasers
Lay down on her head...

I just picture them snuggled down behind the ears, you know?

When I was about 5, I used to love singing christmas carols, and my favourite was "I saw mummy kissing santa claus".

But I always thought the line "underneath the mistletoe last night" was actually "on his little missing toe last night"

My mum still has video tapes of me singing those lines to the song, even pointing to my toes while I was singing it.

What I wanna know now is; Even if Santa DOES have a "missing toe"...how could anyone kiss it? IT'S NOT THERE!
