misheard lyricsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
My boyfriend mis-heard the lyrics in the classic cold chisel song Cheap Wine, instead of " I've got my cheap wine and a three day growth" He would belt out " I've got my cheap wine and a female goat"
Due to the foolishness of a couple friends of mine, and my gullibility, I thought that the song "Dirty Deeds" by AC/DC actually went "Dirty deeds, done with sheep" instead of "done dirt cheap".
I used to believe the lyrics to, "Secret Agent Man" were actually, "Secret Asian Man." I grew up believing most Asians were probably very secretive.
I always thought the song 'goin to the chapel and we're gonna get married...' was
'WE'RE GOIN TO STAPLES AND WE'RE GONNA GET HAIRY!!!'
when I was little I thought the George Michael song "you got to have Faith" was a song about cheese, because when I heard it in my little 5 year old ears I heard "you got to have feta, feta, feta" instead of "you got to have faith, faith, faith"
it made sense to me at the time.....but I still hear feta to this day
When I was about 6 years old, I believed the start of "Oh Canada" was: "Oh Canada, our home and naked land ... "
I couldn't figure out what not wearing clothes had to do with Canada.
I thought the song Hotel California by the Eagles said "Welcome to Oakdale California
In The Monkees song "I`m a believer", Micky Dolenz sings "When I needed sunshine, I got rain". It really sounds like he sings "what I need is sunshine on my brain". Sunshine on brain, eeeew!
When I was young,I thought the lyrics "Secret Agent man" were actually "Secret Asian Man".
I always though the lyrics to Home on the Range' were home, home on the range, where the deer and the cantaloupes play... I never did get that
Come a, Come a, Come a, to me Leon. You come and go. You come and go.
I believed Boy George sang this for at least twenty years, instead of Chama Chama Chameleon, Red Green and Gold, Red Green and Gold!
Thought it was about a gay relationship not a lizard.
My brother was listening to The Corrs and instead "leave me breathless" he would sing "give me breakfast".
Up until I was like 7 or 8, I thought the lyrics to the song "Last Christmas" were, "Last Christmas, I gave you my harp..."
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody - I thought "Be-elzeebub has a devil put aside for me" was "Be-elzeebub, not a devil, but a sideboard, me" (Satanic Sideboards? Devilled Dressers? What other kinds of hellish furniture could there be?)
Hot Chocolate - "Where you from, you sexy thing" I thought that was - "Wear your thong, you sexy thing" (Makes much more sense!)
when i was younger i thought in the alanis morsette song 'you oughta know' that she said the "cross eyed bear" that you gave to me not the "cross i bear that you gave to me." Actually thought her ex gave her a cross eyed teddy bear
Remember that song "Shake, Rattle & Roll"? When I was a child, I heard the lyrics as "Shake Marilyn Monroe, I said shake Marilyn Monroe!"
Could just picture it, too...shaking her by the shoulders, and her kind of giggling...
There used to be an Elvis Presley song called "Let Me Be there". It had a line "let me take you that wonderland where only two can share." I used to think he said "let me take you to that laundromat..." Hmm. a romantic date of doing laundry!!
I can't remember the song (I think it's called 'Praise You') but the lyrics are:
'I'm gonna praise you like I shoooooooooooooould'
Well...never hearing the D I thought it was:
'I'm gonna praise you like a shoooooooooooe.'
Hey I was little! I only found out the real lyrics when my older friend was sitting next to me on the school bus. I was singing along and she burst out laughing!
When I was about 12 the movie Flashdance came out and I bought the tape and memorized the entire thing. One day in the car my favorite song came on to shich the real words are "take my passion and make it happen" in reference to the dancer in the movie. My dad was listening to my version rather than the one on the radio that goes " take my pants down and make it happen." Now that I have kids and they say something cute he reminds me of this moment.
Not so much a prayer as a carol, but a friend of mine has a little girl, and, as children are want to do, she has made the best sense of the lyrics of a certain Christmas Carol that she can. The song in question is 'Away in a Manger'. She's got the 'Away in a Manger' part, but then she thinks it goes on:
The Little Malteasers
Lay down on her head...
I just picture them snuggled down behind the ears, you know?
