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.
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 ?
i thought the line from Grease which goes "I've got chills, they're multiplying, and im loosing control" went "i've got cheeeese, they're multiplying, and im blue said the troll"
wish i hadnt sung that in the playground when i was little...
my boss used to think Will Smiths "Gettin jiggy with it" was "Give me chicken with it"
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.
