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 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.

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 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.

You know that song "That don't impress me..." by Shania Twain. I thought the line " I can't believe you kiss you car at night" was "I can't believe you kiss your carving knife" I'm not a phsyco...honest!

I used to think the song ALL STAR went, "I ate the sharpest tool in the shed....you'll never shine if you don't blow.." I always wondered why they encouraged kids to eat sharp things and give blow jobs..

for those of you who remember the childhood song "London Bridge is Falling Down".... I seriously used to think that the correct words for this song went....London Britches falling down my bare lady.......the funny part is, is that my 3 year old son, sings it the same exact way as I did when I was a child, only I have never told him the incorrect version myself...how funny, huh ?

For years my sister (who is now 22) thought the words to the Jimmy Barnes song "Cheap wine and a 3 day growth" were actually "She's fine with her 3 legged goat". She only realised a few months ago.
