Part of the UK National Anthem goes:
'Send her victorious, happy and glorious'
I thought it said:
'Send her Victoria, happy and Laura'
As there were some twins in my class called Laura and Victoria, this sort of made sense, though I wondered how on earth they had made it to the national anthem.
When my brother was little he heard the song "Le Freak" by Chic (Ahhh, freak out!) like this: Ahhh, free cow!
I believed that there were two types of trees. There were the "Partri" and the "Ginapear" trees.
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a Parti, Ginapear tree......
I used to think in ''Your the one that i want '' from Grease, the lyrics were ''meditate my erection'' instead of ''meditate my direction''
i thought the beatles song Lucy in the skies with diamonds was about the peanuts (charlie brown) cartoons. i heard "Lucy in Disguise with Linus." i thought the seahorse people and colidiscope eyes were her disguise
In Edwin McCain's song "I'll Be" There's a part where he goes "I'll be captivated". As a kid, I always thought he was saying "I'll be Captain Vader". I envisioned a guy dressing up like Darth Vader in an effort to impress the girl of his dreams.
I used to believe that the song "Life in the Fast Lane" was actually "Slide in the Vaseline" ! I think I was deaf as a kid?
I used to believe that the Beatles "Let it Be" were singing "letter B" because I had heard that latter version on Sesame Street. I remember that I got into an argument with my mother over it.
When I was younger, I always swore that the Marilyn Manson song "The Beautiful People" really said "the beautiful meatball."
As a kid, my dad would play a bunch of Nirvana cds. I always thought the line in Smells Like Teen Spirit that said "Here we are now, entertain us" was "Here we are now, in containers".
I always pictured Kurt Cobain asleep in some sort of test tube, sleeping, like in a container for scientific study or something.
I thought the lyrics to "We're going to Ibiza" by the Venga Boys was "We're going to eat pizza"
The Police - Message in a Bottle:
Actual line: "A year has passed since I wrote my note"
I thought it was: "A year has passed since I broke my nose"!
correct lyrics: "if we can count on you, scooby doo, i know we'll catch that villain."
what i heard: "if we can't count on you, scooby doo, i know a cat that's willing."
While singing the Australian Anthem in primary school, I was utterly convinced the first line (actually saying "Australian all let us rejoice") said "Australians all eat ostriches."
I found out otherwise when my teacher overheard my loud singing and pulled me aside to get me in trouble. I was very confused.
When I was in the 8th grade, there was a
fairly popular girl in school who thought that
George Harrison's song "I've got my mind set
on you" was actually "Wake up I might sit on
you" yeah, she was blonde...(no offense to
the intelligent towheads!)
When I was younger, like around nine or ten years old, I loved Duran Duran. In the song "Save A Prayer", there's a lyric that goes "Some people call it a one-night stand, but we can call it paradise". I thought Simon LeBon was singing about a night stand, like the one by his bed where the lamp is. For years I was confused by why he thought a night stand was paradise, but I figured he was rich and had bought the coolest night stand ever. Wouldn't that be paradise!
I used to believe Madonna was singing 'poppadom peach' rather than 'papa don't preach'! I found out my mistake when i sang it really loudly and got laughed at by my friends
This is not my belief but my 5 year old cousins. I heard her singing Beyonce the other day.. according to her it's 'All the single lettuce, all the single lettuce'
I used to think the song Secret Agent Man was actually secret asian man. I was singing along in the car when my mom started laughing and told me it was agent, like James Bond, not asian. I had always wondered how a person could secretly be asian. I was 16 when I finally found this out.
When I was little, I heard the song 'I Want Candy' by Aaron Carter. My name being Andy, I'd mishear the lyric as 'I Want Andy'.
I found this extremely creepy and imagined the little people in the radio being obsessed with me and wanting to capture me.
