In the song "Suit and Tie," there's a line that goes:
"Can't wait to get you on the floor, good looking"
For months, I sang it as:
"Can't wait to get you on the floor, toboggan."

Let's toboggan already!

In the song "Big Yellow Taxi", I was baffled when I heard, "Fake paradise, to put up a f***ing lie." instead of, "They paved paradise to put up a parking lot." I was surprised they'd put a song like that without censoring.

I thought the words in a line of the song "Little Deuce Coupe" by The Beach Boys were "and comin' off the line when the light turns green, well, she grows the marijuana like you've never seen"! Little did I know that the line was, "well, she blows 'em outta the water like you never seen". Embarassed!!

A co-worker sent me into gales of laughter when she told me she thought the lyrics in "I Am So Into You" by the Atlanta Rhythm Section were "When you walked into the room, there was doo-doo on the wall"! You should have seen her face turn red when I told her the lyrics were "When you walked into the room, there was voodoo in your vibes".

One time when I was little, I heard someone singing the song "My bonnie lies over the ocean". I thought they were saying "my BUNNY" and imagined a giant humanoid rabbit sadly waving goodbye as she sailed away on a ship.

I thought "a partridge in a pear tree" was actually a cartridge in a pear tree, and I don't know why they would put a cartridge in a tree. I thought "two turtle doves" was a turtle and a dove, making two in total.

I used to think that the song "my Bonnie lies over the ocean" was actually "my body lies over the ocean", about a dead person's ghost singing about his/her floating body :/

Lysics by Anastacia: I paid my dues.
Lyrics as i sang them: I paid my jews.
I just assumed the jews where bankers and she had a debt from an old loan.
Believed this until I was 15...

My husband told me that when the song Rock Me Amadeus came out that the lyrics were "I'm potatoes I'm potatoes." I guess he used to actually sing it with his friends, who all thought the same thing, on his schoolbus

When I was little, instead of singing 'Shake it like a polaroid picture' when listening to Hey Ya!, I sang 'Shake it like a bowl of raw pizza'. It's my mums ice breaker whenever she meets my friends/ boyfriends.

I thought on the song The Safety Dance by Men Without Hats when they say "we can act real rude and totally removed and I can act like an imbecelle" was actually "we can act real rude and totally removed like an African imbecelle" and was shocked they would put that in a song because it seemed really racist!
