In Elton John's "Tiny Dancer", I thought it was "Jesus frees...out in the streets", when it really was "Jesus freaks...out in the streets"
Silly me!

I was listening to an old record of a gospel group that I had never heard before and still don't know who they are. The music was good, but the record was scratchy and the sound quality was not very clear. A song came on and I heard them sing, "Hickory on the rock." I couldn't figure out what a gospel song had to do with a hickory on a rock. When I heard the chorus again, I realized why that sounded stupid. The correct lyrics were "Victory on the rock." Duh!

I used to believe that the lyrics "Don't go chasing waterfalls" TLC's song "Waterfalls" was actually saying "Don't go Jason water ball" referring to Jason from the original Power Rangers TV show. I was always confused because I could never understand why they said "Water ball"

I used to believe that the chorus to boys of summer were "I can tell you my love for you will still be strong after the poison enters my body", cute as a kid, however I did not realize my mistake until it was remade and I was caught shouting it in my mid twenties

When I was little I thought the song line "every time you go away, you take a piece of me with you" was actually "take a piece of meat with you." I imagined a girl leaving with a big steak or something. The worst part is my parents would hear me sing it and they thought it was so cute they didn't bother to correct me.

I thought the line in Need You Tonight by INXS was "Oh, we'll boycott a snowman" as opposed to "All we've got is this moment." I first heard it at a wedding when I was 7 and had all the other kids there singing "Let's boycott a snowman!" Nobody could work out why.

I loved the song "Flying North" by Thomas Dolby as a kid. When I was about nine I was listening to the song one day and it suddenly struck me; there was a bad word in the song! The line was "N*ggers steaming in the chilly air of the morning." I was so shocked, I couldn't stop crying. However, on further listen, I concluded that the word must have been "knickers" to make "Knickers steaming in the chilly air of the morning." Ahh, I was a lot happier after that.

(It's actually "Lincoln".)

I thought in 12 days of Christmas song that "1 partridge in a pear tree" was actually a cartridge in a pear tree (I didn't know what "partridge" was, so I thought the word was "cartridge" but I didn't know why they put it in a tree), and "2 turtle doves" was actually 2 turtles and 2 doves.

In that song "Kung Fu Fighting", it says, "Everybody was kung-fu fighting; those kicks were fast as lightning." For the longest time, I thought it said "Those STICKS were fast as lightning." Sticks as in needle sticks, like injections.

This was accompanied by a mental image of little kids kung-fu kicking doctors since they didn't want to get shots. Thus, the doctors had to hurry up "fast as lightning" to give them their shots.
Makes sense to me; I was one of those kids that would scream and kick and cry hysterically when I had to get a shot.
It wasn't until about 3 years ago that I was enlightened to the song's true lyrics! (I like my version better.)

My boyfriend told me when he was younger, he was listening to "Lucy in the sky with diamonds" with another child. The line that says "the girl with kaleidoscope eyes" played, and my boyfriend sang it right but his playmate said "The girl with colitis goes by." I laughed for an hour or so.

Yesterday our family was watching the Seinfeld episode "The Pothole." At the end, Newman was singing "You're once, twice, three times a lady" when his truck burst into flames. After the episode was finished, my brother (17 years old) was replaying it in his mind and sang, "You're once, twice, three times later."

My mom used to think that the line "I'm not talkin' 'bout movin' in," from England Dan's "I'd really love to see you tonight" was actually "I'm not talkin' 'bout the linen" (a reference to sheets).

I used to believe that the lyrics to "My eyes adored you" were really "Liza Georgia, though I never laid a hand on you Liza Georgia" and that the song "Forever in Blue Jeans" by Neil Diamond was really "Reverend Blue Jeans" and wanted to go to his church!

Up until recently I thought the lyrics to "Winter Wonderland" were:
Later on, we'll perspire
As we dream by the fire
To face you're away
The plans that we hate,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

My mom had a good laugh at that one.
