I used to think (being a boy into cars) that Don't Stand So Close To Me by The Police, had the line
"Wet bus stop, she's waiting, his car is four wheel drive" - I was confused to find out many years later that in fact "his car is warm and dry".
Still think 4 wheel drive is better....
In the Kenny Rogers song, You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille, I always thought the line "four hungry children" was actually "four hundred children". Surprisingly it never occured to me why they had so many children.
I used to think the Police song "So Lonely" was "Salami".
I used to think (for an alarmingly long time, well into my teens) that the very last to words to "My Country "Tis of Thee" were "and from every mountainside, let free Yombre" (let freedom ring). Now I had no idea who Yombre was or in which particular mountains he was being incarcerated, but this was AMERICA DAMMIT! and LET FREE YOMBRE!
I used to think the song that goes, " I can see clearly now the rain is gone... I can see all obstacles in my way, was, I can see clearly now the rain is gone, I can see all popcicles in my way!
The Canadian Rock group Harlequin had a hit with a song called "Innocence." I swear that in live shows they would sing "Anal Sex" - that 's all you ever needed.
"Anal Sex" - that' all you ever need from me......
I remember telling a friend that I didn't like the new Duran Duran song because of the terrible sexist lyrics... I had a big problem with them saying, "I'll slap that %itch when I find her."
(The Reflex - I'll cross that bridge when I find it.)
For years my Mom has sang "To legit to quit" as "Do the jerk, do the jerk at work", and she's a teacher
Not my belief, but when my daughter was around 3 we had a tape we played in the car and it had the song "Raise a Little Hell" by Trooper on it. We heard my daughter's little voice in the back seat singing "Raise your little hands" at the chorus part, and she'd wave her arms in the air!
On the 'Dead Ringer for love', song by meatloaf and Cher, I always thought that the lyrics were: 'Ever since I can remember you've been hangin' round with George!' The actual lyrics are: 'Ever since I can remember you've been hanging 'round this joint!' I used to wonder who George was and why he was such a good friend?!? I still prefer my version and I still insist on singing those lyrics when I hear that song.
A friend of mine told me the children in "Another Brick in the Wall" by Pink Floyd were making fun and singing "all in all you're just a-nother prick in the hole"... I'm still not convinced this is wrong!
My little brother (he's 5) sings the chorus from the Jimmy Eat World song "little biddle in the middle exercise" instead of little girl you're in the middle of the ride."
He will still argue with you if you try to correct it.
In the Chorus of the song The Motivation Proclemation by Good Charlotte, there is the line
"Captivate me, I want good thoughts inside of my head"
I always sang it as
"Captivate me, I want catharsis out of my head"
I used to think that the song went "Why does it always rain on me, is it because I live in a submarine". I thought the submarine had wholes in it, i didn't know it was "..is it because I lied when i was 17". I could hardly belive it when I found out about a year ago!
I used to believe that when the group TLC was singing their song "Don't go chasing Waterfalls" they were singing "Don't go Jason Waterfalls"
I used to love the song "Hitchin a ride" but I always sang it "ride ride ride, hey Generide" where Generide was a girls name, and they were just saying hey to her
When I was young, easy-listening music was my favorite. When I first heard Louis Armstrong's "Blueberry Hill," I thought that he said "I found my drill on Blueberry hill..." and it turns out "I found my thrill..."
I used to believe that on Ace of Base's All that She Wants she was saying Ohh Matchy Box, I could never figure out why she was singing about what I thought to be match boxes.
you know that song called "Our Lips Are Sealed" by the Go-Go's, I always thought it said 'I'm a succeeder'And succeeder isn't even a word!!!
Whenever I sang to TLC's "Waterfalls" I sang the lyrics differently, I sing it like "don't go jason waterfalls lipstick to the---" my family always laughed at me untill I got the picture.
