misheard lyricsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
In the song, "American Idiot" by Green Day, the line goes, "So maybe I'm the f*gg*t America," but I was in third grade and thought it was, "So maybe I'm a fat guy in America."
When I was little, I heard the song 'I Want Candy' by Aaron Carter. My name being Andy, I'd mishear the lyric as 'I Want Andy'.
I found this extremely creepy and imagined the little people in the radio being obsessed with me and wanting to capture me.
I used to believe that Leona Lewis' song "Angel" was about a ninja, because of how she pronounced the word.
I use to think that Foreigner song 'Jukebox Hero' was actually Juicebox hero... It just made more sense to me that way.
My brother was listening to The Corrs and instead "leave me breathless" he would sing "give me breakfast".
When I was about 2 or 3, I used to think Buddy Holly's Peggy Sue actually said "Eggy Soup" XP
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."
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 heard it through the grapevine...
Not much longer than the pea vine...
(I believed it was comparing vine sizes...)
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...
I thought the song "Karma Police" was actually saying "call the police" before I learned the title
I used to think the Macarena was a counting song and that there was something special about the number 10. I would sing it "one maca two maca...seven maca eight maca nine Macarena Hey Macarena!"
I thought the song Shattered Dreams was acutaly "Shadow Dreams" and wondered what shadow dreams were
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
I used to believe that the song by the monkees that says "take the last train to Clarksville" actually said "take the last Santa Claus sleigh" I didn't realize my mistake until I was well into my teens
