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!

In the song 'Boys' by Sabrina, I thought the lyrics were 'Everybody Needs Someone to Love'. instead of 'Everybody, Summertime Love'

My mom almost wrecked the car when she heard my sister and me singing along with Helen Reddy: "Yes, I was, but I squeezed up all the paint!"

Turns out she was saying, "Yes, I'm wise, but it's wisdom born of pain." That doesn't sound like near as much fun.

Cutting crew- I just died in your arms tonight...

I just died in your arms tonight, it must have been some kind of cheese. I should have walked away.

Must have been a really pungent stilton.

I don't want to know what the real lyrics are, it'll spoil my the bad stilton experience in my head.

On the show "My Life as a Teenage Robot," there was a song called "The Miki Momo." I was so sure as a kid that it was a direct parody of another song, called "Michi Mombre." I had even heard it in my gym class:

"Mombre, muvva-nuvva, I'm gonna mamba, I'm gonna Michi-michi-michi-michi Mombre, muvva-nuvva...."

What I was ACTUALLY hearing was the song "One Way or Another" by Blondie. For years I thought the song was called "Michi-Mombre" and there was a dance that went along with it, obviously, called the "Michi Mombre Muvva-Nuvva."

When I used to listen to The Ballad of John and Yoko I thought there was a friend of the band who was of African descent and resembled Paul McCartney named Brown Paul who was mentioned in the lyrics “Brown Paul say you can make it okay. You can can get married in Gibraltar or Spain”. The actual lyrics were “Peter Brown called to say you can make it okay”

I used to think that in the song "Fly on the Windscreen" by Depeche Mode Dave Gahan said, "There are lands for the Sultan, waiting to die" but just recently I found out that he really says, "There are lambs for the slaughter, waiting to die"

My parents played Chicago songs a lot when I was little. I always thought that in "If You Leave Me Now" the line was, "If you leave me now, you'll take away the biggest part of meat." I thought the song was about some poor guy whose girlfriend was stealing all his food.

I used to think that the song "Helicopter" by Bloc Party was all about cows for some reason. At the beginning, when it said "North to south" i thought it said "Not his cow" like a farmer not wanting his cow to be killed. What really confused me was the chorus which i thought was saying "Are you happy for a moo-cow?" rather than "Are you hoping for a miracle?" also, in a verse i thought it said "Master's tired of milk and shaving"

In the song "Sowing The Seeds Of Love" by Tears for Fears there is a line "if you're a worried man, shout about it. For a long time I thought it was "If you're a wanted man, shout about it" and thought it was weird because if you were a wanted man I assume you wouldn't want people to know..

this isnt my belief but when my sister was little she was practising a song for her christmas play at home for weeks and kept singing 'we are fluffy shepards' we were all quite confused as to why the shepards were fluffy. it wasnt until we went to watch the play and heard the class sing 'we are scruffy shepards' that we realised she'd been singing the wrong words!

I used to love that song that played before Friends. I used to sing along, too.
"So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job's a jojabro
Your love's lost you your way"

To answer any follow up questions, I have absolutely no idea what a jojabro is.

A couple years or so ago when Jesse McCartney was super famous and he came out with the song "How Do You Sleep?"
When he sings the part "it still smells just like you d*** those sweet memories" I thought he was saying man not d***
