The Beach Boys song "Kokomo" has some lyrics that go "... that Montserrat mystique". To this day, I still here "mounds of rotten steak".
Did anybody besides me believe that Londonderry Air was actually London Derriere?
I always thought the lyrics to "Wannabe" by The Spice Girls were
"If you wannabe my lover, you gotta take off my pants." I was like 8 and sung it this way and my mother heard and about had a cow, but that's how my best friend sang it so I believed it to go that way.
When I was growing up in Southern California, there was this used car lot that would play commercials on TV. They always started out with "This is Cal Worthington and his dog Spot." Then the theme song would start. For years I thought the chorus of the song was "pussycow, pussycow, pussycow" instead of "go see Cal, go see Cal, go see Cal". For years I wonder what the heck a pussycow was.
I used to believe that the last line of Row Row Row Your Boat was 'Life is butter dream'.
When I was little, instead of singing 'Shake it like a polaroid picture' when listening to Hey Ya!, I sang 'Shake it like a bowl of raw pizza'. It's my mums ice breaker whenever she meets my friends/ boyfriends.
Imagine her surprise and my absolute amusement when I heard my friend Linna singing, "Play that monkey music, white boy!" and I told her it was 'funky music'. What a hoot!! Can't hear that song today without seeing her snappin' her fingers and struttin' her stuff, singing those lyrics. A great memory for me!
I always thought the hook in Kim Carnes' "Bette Davis Eyes" was "all the boys think she's a spaz" instead of "all the boys think she's a spy." D'oh!
My brother used to love Billy Jean by Michael Jackson, but used to sing along to the chorus "Bit of Cheese, that's what I like"...bless
When my younger daughter was small she loved to sing in the car. One day she demanded we sing "The Rabbit In The Sea" It took us at least 15 minutes to figure out that she meant "My Bonny (bunny) Lies Over The Ocean.
For a long time i thought the song 'take my breath away' was 'take my bread nowhere' only recently did i figure it out...
My father listened to a lot of Queen. Whenever I'd hear the song "Another One Bites the Dust" I wondered why people would bite on tables covered in dust. I tested that out once, and bit the end table at my grandma's house. Now, when ever I hear that song, I can taste lemon Pledge, and feel wood under my teeth. There are still some teeth marks on my grandmothers end table!
Remember "Crazy for You" by Madonna?
I heard "two by two their bodies become one" as "two by two their bodies decompose". As I was not quite 10, I thought this was the nastiest thing I had ever heard!
I, too, sang "every time you go away, you take a piece of meat with you."
In "Got my Mind Set On You" by George Harrison, I used to sing it "Oh, God, my mom sat on you", and could never figure out why it was gonna take plenty of money to do it right.
My mom thought that "Never gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley went "Man, I'm gonna give you up, Man I'm gonna let you down, Man I'm gonna run around and desert you." I was 15 when I finally figured out why she always wanted me to change that "hateful" song when it came on the radio.
I thought for the longest time that elvis' "Suspicious Minds" began "They called him a tramp! I can't hold back!"
I was also a victim of "Lucy in the sky with diamonds, the girl with colitis goes by." I always thought it was weird.
Lyrics to Prince's "When Dove's Cry"
Original: "Maybe I'm just like my mother, she's never satisfied..."
What I heard (and sang alound): "Maybe I'm just like my mother, she never sat inside..."
In the Prince song which goes
"I will die for you"
I always used to think it said
"Yabba Dabba Do"
So I just thought that Prince had a thing for Fred Flintstone or something
I thought "having been some days in preparation, a splendid time is guaranteed for all" in Being For The Benefit of Mister Kite was, "some beans, some raisins, preparation, a splendid time is guaranteed for all."
In Danity Kane's song "Damage" there's a part where one of the girls sings:
"My heart is damaged, damaged, damaged"
over & over again.
I heard "I want a sandwich, sandwich sandwich"
