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....
Alanis Morrisette hit it big in the U.S. when I was about 13. My favorite song on her album was the one that went:
"You live, you nerd.
You breathe, you nerd..."
The song seemed to be about how, no matter what you do, someone is always going to make fun of you for it. I thought this was a very cool, and very true, idea for a song.
I remarked to my older sister, "Don't you love that song, 'You Nerd'?" She laughed and set me straight: it was actually "You Learn".
I never liked the song quite as much after that.
when i first heard boyfriend by Ashlee Simpson i thought she said, "I'm pregnant with you boyfriend" instead of "I didn't steal your boyfriend." I couldn't understand who would have a fetus for a boyfriend.
I was in the car with my dad and the song "Move Along" from All American Regects came on. My dad was loving it and starting singing along. "MOW THE LAWN, MOW THE LAWN LIKE I KNEW YA WOULD!"
Instead of "MOVE ALONG MOVE ALONG"
when i was little i was a huge fan of the Sound of Music. And whenever they sang edelweiss, I thought that they where saying little mice
I used to believe that the kids poem "finders keepers, losers weepers" really said "finders keepers, losers sweepers." I figured that Cinderella had a hard life, and she did a lot of sweeping!
I still believe that there's a line in Rock around the clock which goes,"when the clock strikes twelve we'll poo our pants" although it's supposed to be "when the clock strikes twelve we'll cool off then" -No simularity!
My ex was convinced the line from David Bowie's "Suffrigette City" was "don't lean on me man 'cos you can't afford the chickens" (as opposed to "you can't afford the ticket")
A friend of mine used to sing 'Oh my god! There's a snowman' instead of 'All we've got is this moment' to INXS's - Need You Tonight.
He was convinced that these were the correct lyrics and tried to justify this to me by saying 'Well, they come from Australia, so they've never seen snow before'.
In Middle Of The Road by The Pretenders, I knew I could never be as cool or as free as Chrissie Hynde because I could never see myself "standing in the middle of life with my pants behind me."
I only recently learned it was "standing in the middle of life with my pains behind me." To me it still sounds like "pants."
There is this Christmas song that has the lyrics, "we will have some pumpkin pie" and I always thought it was we will all have some "F___in" pie". The sad part is I thought this becasue that is the way I remember my grandmother singing it.
I spent the early part of my childhood (at least primary school) thinking that two people featured in songs that actually never existed.
1. Anne Jenoit... "If you're happy, Anne Jenoit (and you know it), clap your hands...
2. Ray Novarus... "send her victorious, happy and glorious, belongs to Ray Novarus (long to reign over us), god save the queen.
I slowly disabused myself of these misconceptions but I miss my two childhood friends
This is really embarrassing as I wasn't even a child at the time!
When I was 14 I got a Bryan Adams CD which I really liked. Unfortunately I thought the first line of "Summer of 69" was "I had my first real sex dream" instead of "I got my first real six string." My church youth leader said we could bring CDs to the youth group as long as the songs didn't have anything rude in them and I never took my Bryan Adams CD along because I thought it was rude!
I am now 23 and only found out a couple of months ago what the real words are. My husband is still laughing at me.
I used to think that the lyrics to the Pink Floyd song "Another Brick in The Wall pt 3" Were
"The Dukes of Hazzard in the classroom" but, much to my dismay I think Roger Waters was singing about the dark sarcasm.
At the end of the song "another one bites the dust" there is a part where Freddie Mercury keeps repeating Another One bites the dust, then he says "I'm Adopted". I thought, How cool, so am I! Never understood what it had to do with a shootout though. I always suspected that wasn't what he was saying, but until now, I never knew he was actually saying "Bites the dust-ah" putting a little more emphasis on the end of the word.
I think it was a secret message to his birth parents though.
Who remembers the Wham Classic Wake Me Up And Bring Me Coco (as in hot chocolate)?
I sang that for years, how embarrassing.
I thought the line in Need You Tonight by INXS was "Oh, we'll boycott a snowman" as opposed to "All we've got is this moment." I first heard it at a wedding when I was 7 and had all the other kids there singing "Let's boycott a snowman!" Nobody could work out why.
In the song, "Kung-Fu Fighting" the lyrics are, ""Everybody was kung-fu fighting; those kicks were fast as lightning." I heard, ""Everybody was kung-fu fighting; those ; 'cats' were fast as lightning."
I couldn't figure out why they mentioned cats in the song.
