Before I found any lyrics site giving the lyrics for Lady Gaga's song "So Happy I Could Die", I thought she was singing "So happy I could die. I'm A Samurai." On finding the real lyrics from a site, I found she is only saying "So happy I could die and it's alright." That is way "lame" compared to what I first thought I heard. Possibly I've never visualized anything else so wildly ludicrous as Lady Gaga posing as a Samurai!
I used to believe Row Row Row Your Boat was 'Row row row your boat gently down the stream. Merrily merrily merrily merrily life is butter dream.' Then I realized I was completely wrong a few year ago.
Come a, Come a, Come a, to me Leon. You come and go. You come and go.
I believed Boy George sang this for at least twenty years, instead of Chama Chama Chameleon, Red Green and Gold, Red Green and Gold!
Thought it was about a gay relationship not a lizard.
"Blinded by the Light" by Manfred Mann goes
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
My dad used to think it was:
Blinded by the light,
wrapped up like a douche,
another boner in the night.
I used to believe the song on Home Alone was "The cold wind blows around the street of Denmark..." and the other line "The music plays all night, it's idyl-idlyic" It still sounds a bit like that!
When I was little, I heard the last song that's played in Grease and thought John Travolta was saying "I got juice in the blender" instead of "I got chills, they're multiplyin." I have no idea how I thought that.
When I was younger I used to believe the song 'poetry in motion' was actually 'all the tree is ocean'. I really liked that song untill my mother corrected me.
One day I was in the car with my niece and I was flipping through the stations when the song "How Low Can You Go" came on and my niece goes "OH I LOVE THAT SONG! HEL-LO STINKY TOE!" I laughed so hard as she sung along.
As a thoughtful and intelligent little boy around age five or so during Christmas, I one day approached my Mother and asked, "Whose story is Rudolf in?" My Mom, perplexed, asked what in heavens did I mean. I replied logically, "The song keeps saying 'You'll go down in his story': whose story does he go down in?!"
my husband nearly killed me with laughter singing in the car one day! the song "keep it copacetic" was on the radio but he was singing it "get yer goat sally" and he really thought that was the words!
The line 'The dark sacred night' in What A Wonderful World is actually 'The dogs say goodnight'...
I thought in the song Zombie by The Cranberries she was not saying "In your head, in your head, zombie, zombie: but rather "In your head, in your head, ze army, ze army" (i.e the army said with a German accent, and for some reason it didn't occur to me that she didn't have a German accent any other time she sang..)
When I was younger and Breaking Benjamin was the thing, I could never quite understand that he was singing "Diary of Jane". I was so curious as to why he would be singing about a "Diarrhea chain", or what the hell a Diarrhea chain was. I didn't like the song for a while until I realized he wasn't singing about feces.
You sexy thing-Hot Chocolate
What the real lyrics are: "I believe in miracles"
What I heard: "I believe in marigolds"
In the 70's KC and the Sunshine band had a hit called something like "Get down tonight." or at least that was one of the lyrics. I had a lot of hearing problems as a kid ( infections, etc.) that affected my hearing. So I always thought that KC was singing "get calgonite" which I thought was some kinda brand name dish washing soap, and was always mystified why he was doing a song that was kinda a commercial and so into dish washing soap.
I always thought that the lyrics to Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire" were "Trouble in the sewers" instead of "Trouble in the Suez."
The Macy Gray song, 'I try' has a line that says...My world crumbles when you are not here' but for years I was convinced it was 'I wear googles when you are not here'
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
