When I first heard Bruce Springsteen's song, "Born in the USA," I thought that the song was "Porn in the USA"

As a child I always thought that the King of Israel was named "Born" - King Born. From the Christmas Carol "The First Noel"....."Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel" BORN IS THE KING of Israel

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.

When I was about 5, I used to love singing christmas carols, and my favourite was "I saw mummy kissing santa claus".

But I always thought the line "underneath the mistletoe last night" was actually "on his little missing toe last night"

My mum still has video tapes of me singing those lines to the song, even pointing to my toes while I was singing it.

What I wanna know now is; Even if Santa DOES have a "missing toe"...how could anyone kiss it? IT'S NOT THERE!

As an elementary school child I believed that in "Winter Wonder Land" they perspired instead of conspired by the fire.

In the Band Aid song I always thought that it went 'Beaver, woah, do they know it's christmas...' not 'feed the world, do they know it's christmas'.

When I was younger & listening to Madonna's 'Material Girl' on the radio, my little sister decided one day to sing along. Of course it wasn't till after the song ended that I realized what she was saying: "Cuz I'm li-ving, in a Cheerio World, and I'm a Cheerio girl!" --Today we still laugh our butts off about it as adults!

My brother believed that Michael Jackson's song 'Billy Jean' contained the words, 'Don't go around breaking young girls' arms'!! (It was supposed to be 'hearts'!)

For the longest time I thought that in Bruce Springsteen's song, "I'm on fire', where he says "Ooooh....I'm on fire", I was sure he was saying "Ooooh....I might fart".

Oh Irah-ah-ahn ... Iran's so far away ...
Yah you know that song by the Flock of Seagulls? Eheh, yah. Being the geographically smart kid that I have always been, I figured that was what it said. Jeez I'm stupid sometimes.

Heh heh, "Billy Jean" by Michael Jackson:

Billy Jean is not my mother!
Just a girl who says that,
"I am your mom",
But the chair is not my son!

Nobody can tell me different, because that's how it goes. Seriously. I know. I think.

I heard a Billy Joel song that went "You may be right, I may be crazy" as "you make the rice, I'll make the gravy". Also, until reading on here, I thought the Sir Mix-Alot song "Big Butts" said "Oooh Rumpelstiltskin" not "I wanna rub you smooth skin" as well.

When she was little, my mom thought that "Winter Wonderland" was actually "Winter Underwear." Too bad nobody told her differently BEFORE she sang it in front of the entire church.

My Ex-wife when she was little used to believe that the name of the song was "Only Baloney" instead of " Only The Lonely."

In the Who's song 'Who Are You,' I thought the line was 'I remember throwing budgies around' instead of 'I remember throwing punches around.' For many years I always imagined Roger Daltrey throwing small pet birds around the recording studio.

You know that song that goes "When the moon hits the sky like a big pizza pie, it's amore"? well, i used to think he was saying "it's a Moray", and it made no sense to me until i discovered that AMORE is "love" in Italian! lol

When I was a kid, I thought Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl started with "Hey there amigos!". The line is action "Hey where did we go". I always wondered who the amigos were!
