When I was 3 or 4 I thought that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana said "My Potato" instead of "My Libido"

When I was about 5 I used to think that the song "Another one bites the dust" by Queen was about dust bunnies that needed to be swept up in the corner.

As a child, I thought the song "The farmer in the dell" was instead "The farmer AND the dell". I knew what a farmer was from the time I first remember hearing it. But I spent a lot of time wondering what kind of occupation one would have if one were a "dell", before I finally learned the real lyrics and what a dell actually is.

For years and years I used to think that the song 'Creep' by Radiohead contained the lyrics 'I'm a creep, I'm a widow', rather than 'I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo'.

for several years as a kid, i firmly believed that these were the words to a few country songs...

She walked in Leaches, that cheyenne (Beaches of Cheyenne)

She think's I can go Kaboom (She thinks i can rope the moon)

in "Shoulda been a cowboy", I though he was wearing a sex shooter (and never sang the lyrics for fear of getting in trouble by my mom) when he really had a six-shooter (as any good cowboy would)...

My mom still makes fun of me to this day (I'm 24 and married...and yes, she's told my husband)

When I heard the Beatles song Help with the lyrics, "and I do appreciate you comin round," I literally imagined a person who was a round ball, kind of like Violet turning into a blueberry in Willy Wonka.

When I heard the Stone Roses song I Wanna Be Adored as a little I thought it was I Wanna Be A Dog

I used to think in "I'm still waiting" by Diana Ross, the line which goes "I put him off with lies, he could see i had no eyes" was actually "I put him off at last, he could see I had no arse"

When my younger brother was little, he thought the lyrics from Maroon 5's "She will be loved" weren't "I know where you hide, alone in your car", but "I know where you hide, Bologna your car". XD

A 1980s commercial about rail travel had a song that went 'This is the age of the train' and I thought it was 'This is the edge of the train'

I am a huge Duran Duran fan. Have been since I was 6. I always particularily loved the song Save A Prayer especially since it was written for me... "You saw me standing by the wall, corner of Elaine Street..."
And when I was much older, my heart was broken when I found out that Simon Le Bon was on the corner of Main Street.

I thought the line in the song "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" was "with nobody candy knives." I really wanted a candy knife.

The Tina Moore song that goes 'Never gonna let you go' has the line 'Worth more than a million in gold' and I firstly thought it was 'Football and a million goals'.

My grandmother has always been terrible at understanding song lyrics. She believed that "Taking Care of Business" was, instead, "take a can biscuits." She also thought that the CCR song "Bootleg Bootleg" was koolaid koolaid. And it was not "The Girl With Kaleidoscope eyes." Nope, it was "the girl with colitis goes by."

There's a lyric in the U2 song "Bullet The Blue Sky" that goes "I can see those fighter planes." My dad thought it was "I can see those spider fangs."

We'll never let him live that one down.

When me and my friend were in kindergarten, we used to sing this rhyme "hey who's that it's a missippi cat M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I". Only we heard it as "M-I-S-S-I-S-S-S-P-P-I". Well, we got into a whole fight about it with our dads, until around three months ago- I'm fourteen now- that our dads were right. I still won't admit it, though...

My son thought the words "Paparazzi" in the Lady Gaga song were actually "Papa Rahtzee" and asked me why she was singing about this random man called Papa!

top belief!

Blackadder does not ride a 'Pitch Black Steed' but in fact rides a 'Black Jetski'
I dunno, I was a child. I was probably too busy shoving lego up my nose to listen to the lyrics correctly.

When I was little my dad often played a tape in his car with the song "More than a Woman". I always thought it was "four legged woman" and sung along that way.
