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.
When the TLC song that goes "Don't go chasing waterfalls" first came out,when I was about 8 I had to persuade my older sister that the lyrics were NOT "Go Go, Jason Waterfall". I think she thought Jason Waterfall was some wierd kind of superhero who TLC were fans of...
When I first heard the song "Push It" by Salt N Pepa, I thought the chorus said "Aah, bullshit".
Also, in "Sad Songs Say So Much" by Elton John : "Just feel their gentle touch"..I first thought it was "just feel their genitals"
In "Silent Night", it was a "Holy imbecile, tender and mild"
"You know I'd like to keep my cheese androgynous."
The song was "No Rain", by Blind Melon, and the actual line is "I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today". Everyone in my circle heard the line differently. Who didn't?
I am also convinced that the Manic Street Preachers song "You stole the sun from my arse" and not "you stole the sun from my heart"
me and my friend were listening to the radio and the song 'love lift us up where we belong' comes on...only she thinks the words were 'the lift goes up when we get on'.
For about 20 years I thought the first lines of Elvis Presley's 'Suspicious Minds' were "I'm courting a trout, I can't walk out". It may be a weird concept and not make sense but at least it rhymes better than the real lyrics!
To a classic song my brother thought the words were as follows: "Home, home on the range. Where the deer and the ENVELOPES play." The oddity of such a situation never seemed to occur to him.
When i heard POD's "youth of the nation" for the first time, then i heard this:
You cross the line and there’s no turning back
Told the world how he felt
With the sound of a gat
I thought they sang something about a guy commiting suicide:
You cross the line and there’s no turning back
Took his own life
with the side of a cat!
Yup! I really thought this guy committed suicide by knocking himself down with a cat :)
When i was younger i liked the song lets talk about sex which goes, "Lets talk about sex baby lets talk about you and me..." My mom, not wanting to explain sex to me yet convinced me that it went "Lets talk about socks baby, n how they get dirty..." I thought that it went like that until i was about 12.
"Somewhere over the rainbow
Weigh a pie."
Why did Dorothy weigh a pie somewhere over the rainbow?
When I was younger, maybe 7 or so I used to think the line in the song Barbara Anne by the Beach Boys "went to a dance, lookin' for romance. Saw Barbara Anne so I thought I'd take a chance" REALLY was saying "Went to the dance, lookin for some pants. Saw Barbara Anne's so I thought I'd take her pants"
I have always been (and still am!) convinced that the Beach Boys song 'I Was Made To Love Her' has the refrain 'Hey, hey, you son of a b***h!'. I am told that it actually says 'Hey, hey, yes I was made to love her' - but I don't believe it!
until about 3 years ago, i believed in mary had a little lamb the song, they said "had fleas as white as snow" instead of "fleece."
I used to think that the lyrics "just a special touch of paradise" were "just a special touch of parrots eyes". The song was sampled on an advert for Malaysia. I used to love that song, and imagined travelling to Malaysia and being able to pet the parrots. I decided I would be kind and not touch their eyes, though, because they probably didn't like that much.
The theme song of Grease, instead of your the one that i want, i thought it sounded like 'your the wobbley dog'
I thought she'd find that a bit insulting, i would.
for a long time this is what i thought part of fall out boy's Sugar we're going down was:
Tell Mommy i'm watching you two from the closet
wishing to be the freak **** in your sheets
this is how it really goes:
Don't mind me watching you two from the closet
wishing to be the friction in your jeans
i was pretty stupid....
