top belief!

I used to think that in the song "Everytime you go away" by Paul Young that he was singing..."Everytime you go away you take a piece of MEAT with you". Just the thought of a man packing a suitcase with a big fat porterhouse steak is enough to crack me up now that I know the actual lyrics!

The Monkees song 'Daydream Believer' has the lyrics 'to a daydream believer and a homecoming queen'. I thought for a very long time that she was a queen that was literally coming home. Like from overseas or something.

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'!

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.

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...
