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.

Until I was about 16, I though Huey Lewis's "The Heart of Rock and Roll" said "The OBOE may be barely breathing" as opposed to "old boy." I still hear oboe when I listen to it.

When I was little I thought that Madonna was singing "Cereal Girl" instead of "Material Girl". I though it was a song about cherriohs.

In "Song 2" by Blur the first line is "I got my head checked, by a jumbo jet" for a long time I thought it was "I got my head shaved, by a chimboche" I thought chimboche was some Indian tribe or something

I believed the lyrics to "Show me the meaning of being lonely" by the Backstreet Boys was "show me the meaning of being long-legged."

I thought Mary Black's song "Columbus" was not saying " You dream of Columbus" but "You dream of plumbers ( streched out to three syllables to fit the cadence of the song) till I found out the song's name

I thought in the song "First and Last and Always" by Sisters of Mercy the first line was " I see her body and I dream of the dentist" (instead of the correct "dead days") I figure for some people dreaming of the dentist would be more scary than the dead days!

I used to believe that the lyrics to Metallica's "Sad but True" actually said "Sad Patrol" and envisioned a cop-like patrol of people set out to spread sadness.
