I used to hear the lyrics to Culture Club's Karma Chameleon as "Become-a come-a come-a come-a come-a comedian..." Oh well...

I used to think that the song from CATS ("Gelical cats!") actually went "Genital cats!" I thought Genital Cats was like, another euphemism for crabs or soething, because the song went, "Genital cats are black and white. Genital cats are rather small...."

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"

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!

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.

Who remembers the Wham Classic Wake Me Up And Bring Me Coco (as in hot chocolate)?
I sang that for years, how embarrassing.

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 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.

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!

"We built this city" by Starship. All younger members in our family were upset to find out that the lyrics actually went 'we built this city on rock and roll' and not 'we built this city on sausage rolls' as we had thought.

I thought Californication by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers lyrics were:

"Dream of midget fornication"
as opposed to:
"Dream of Californication"
I often wondered why the song had no reference to its title!
