When I first saw "The Sound of Music," I was baffled as to why they would be sending Maria away when they'd just sung about how good she was at solving all sorts of difficult problems. "How do you solve a problem like Maria...?"
It wasn't until much later that I realized Maria WAS the problem.
I used to love Elvis when I was a kid and I only realised last week that the words are actually "hard-headed woman been a thorn in the side of man... Ever since the world began", not, as I used to sing very loudly, "hard-headed woman with a hole in the side of her head... Ever since the waffle began."
For the song 'Listen Like Thieves' by INXS, I've been singing for ten years now, "Everybody's telling their knees... Listen like thieves!" instead of "Everybody's down on their knees..."
I thought that Radiohead's "Creep" contained the lyrics, "I'm a tree, I'm a willow" instead of, "I'm a creep, I'm a willow."
When I was a kid and I heard Bob Segars "Like a Rock" I thought he was singing Fraggle Rock and it was my fave song since I loved Fraggle Rock. My dad one day told me what he was really saying, I started to cry so he put it on and said Hey wait your right it is Fraggle Rock!
I used to think the Metallica song that says exit light, enter night. was actually talking about An EXIT light you would see above a door.
My kids a few years ago thought they knew everything!! Well,when they sang out loud ''Lock Tide'' I gave them the weirdest look and asked them what they were singing? They said it was from a wrestling CD for the wrestler HHH. Well I told them they were wrong and that the actual song tiltle was..''My Time''..they didn't care they still went on singing''Lock Tide''.
They even sang ''Take the last train to Pottsville'' instead of ''Take the last train to Clarksville'' by the Monkees...I gave up and just let them make a fool of themselves...(LOL)
In 1976, aged 11, I misheard the title of Gallagher and Lyle's big British hit 'Heart On My Sleeve' - I thought it was called 'Hat On The Street'!
i used to think the words to the now familiar csi:miami's "won't get fooled again" theme song was: "we don't get food or game".
My Mom, whose hearing isn't so great, thought for the longest time Elton John's song "Too Low for Zero" was "True Love for Vera" until Dad corrected her. I like Mom's version better.
For the first 50 years of my life, I thought Elvis was singing a song that had some connection to a candy bar called Mallo Cup. I could have sworn he was saying "Amulsha Cup", rather than I'm All Shook Up.
k this is from my mom .. i just think its hilarious.
we were singing a song by joan jett
i love rock n roll
put another dime in the juke box baby
well she thought it was
put another log on the fire baby
My younger (male) cousin thought a song that went "I wanna be your lover" went "I wanna be your lawyer"
born to be wild lyrics to me from about 5 years old where...
get your motor running
granny on the highway
loking for adventure
in whatever comes her way
oh the embarressment when my boyfriends mates found out
i used to think that the line in the queen song bohemian rhapsody 'spare him his life from this monstrosity' went 'spare him his life for this one cup of tea'
i also thought that the song cotton eyed joe said grandpa joe
When my 10 year old daughter Taylor was six, the Centerfold song by the J. Geils Band came on the radio in the car. Her dad and I were laughing hysterically when she sang the lyrics as, "My angel is a cell phone" instead of "My angel is the centerfold". To this day, our whole family (including Taylor) sings the lyrics incorrectly just to tease her every time the song comes on!
When I was little and innocent (and understood hardly any English) I was sure that instead of "sex bomb" Tom Jones sings "James Bond, James Bond, you are James Bond". I was frustrated when I didn't find it from my father's "Bond theme songs" CD.
This isn't really my belief, but my mom's. Anyway, I was listening to "Okay I Believe You But My Tommy Gun Don't" by Brand New, and my mom thought the opening line "I am heaven sent, don't you dare forget" was "I am having sex, don't you dare forget".
She was concerned...
When I first heard the lyrics to "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out" I thought Springsteen was singing "Check Benny in the Freezer" *thud*
It wasn't until I looked up the lyrics that I found out Offspring's Come Out and Play was about schoolyard violence...
"Kids are stopping (strapping) on the way to the classroom, getting lessons (weapons) with the greatest of ease"
"One goes to the mall (morgue) and the other to jail"
