When I was little we grew up in the countryside,and every New Year I thought they were singing about "Old Egg Signs" instead of "Auld Lang Syne", which to me was quite odd and I was always to afraid to admit not knowing the connection between New Years and Eggs, so I never asked.Im 41 now and still sing it "old Egg Signs"

When I was younger, I thought that John Berry's "She's Takin' A Shine" was really "She's takin' a shower" and would sing it this way at the top of my lungs in the car.

On the song Psycho Killer by Talking Heads he says "Psycho killer, Qu'est-ce que c'est" (French for "what is it?") I thought at first he was saying "Psycho killer, kiss Casey" and I wondered who Casey was and why the psycho killer would kill him/her

In the movie Grease 2, one of the greasers tells the girls to "read it and weep!"after they win at bowling. I thought he was saying "read it in a week!". I thought that was a very strange phrase because that's a very long time to read the scores to their game of bowling.

In the song "It's a hard knock life" from Annie, I used to believe the song was saying "it's a hard enough life!" I was told a few weeks ago that it wasn't. I'm 16 years old.

My daughter's version of "The King of Rock and Roll" by Prefab Sprout is cute. Instead of "Hot dog, jumping frog, Albuquerque," it's "Hot dog, jumping frog, I want cupcakes."

I like her version better.

When i was little, i believed that 'Dirty Deeds done dirt cheap' actually said 'thirty deeds, thunder chief'. i never listened to any of the other words, so i always thought it was about indians.

I used to believe that the stable that Jesus was born in belonged to someone named Aunt Chelsea because when we sang "Angels We Have Heard on High" in church, it sounded like "In Aunt Chelsea's Stable" instead of "In Excelsis Deo".

I used to believe Abba sang 'Kimmy, kimmy, kimmy, a man after midnight.' And that the song was some kind of spell that would make me a boy over night.

My family is Catholic, and every Sunday when I was a kid we'd go to church. Just before the kids left the main sermon for Sunday school, we'd sing Hosanna in the Highest. Despite being in the church choir, five-year-old me thought "Hosanna" was actually "Lasagna." (We're also Italian; maybe I had lunch on the brain?) I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out why the adults were singing about holy lasagna.

I thought in the song "The Caterpillar" by The Cure the line "I'll dust my lemon lies, with powder pink and sweet" was "I'll toss my leather gloves, where Power Pig can see"!

In Elton John's song "Honky Cat," when he sang "get back, honky cat," I thought he was singing "get back, hump a cat." I sang that with my friend, he laughed at me and gave me the correct lyric lol

I thought the song by The Human League that goes like "And so the conversation turned, until the sun went down" was "And so the confirmation burned, until the buns turned brown".

There's a John Mellencamp song that has the line "I fight authority, and authority always wins." I thought they were saying "I fight Dorothy, and Dorothy always wins!"

There is a Christmas song that goes "Mary's boy child, Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas day..." But I always thought that it was saying "Where is Pork Chop? Jesus Christ! He was born on Christmas day..." I thought they were actually talking about the character Lamb chop but had just gotten his name wrong....I used to sing it that way too! O_O

In the movie Mary Poppins when she sings Feed The Birds there is a part that goes "all the saints and apostles" that, when I was little, I was convinced went "all the snakes and opossums". My dad always told me I was right and would sing it to me like that when I was going to sleep.

Ya'know the song Lonely by Akon, well I just realized a few days ago that the lyrics are "I've got nobody, and I'm all on my own." I always thought they were "I've got no body", as in a head without a body.....

Blind Melon's "No Rain"---

"You know I'd like to keep my chi extracted, eh." instead of "You know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today." Still hear it every time.
