misheard lyricsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
While singing Christmas carols as a child, I was confused by "Angels We Have Heard on High." Instead of "in excelsis Deo," I thought it was "in Aunt Chelsea's stable."
I used to believe Abba sang 'Kimmy, kimmy, kimmy, a man after midnight.' And that the song was some kind of spell that would make me a boy over night.
I mishear more and more with the passing years... but my two best date from a while ago:
Bohemian Rhapsody -"Spare him his life from these pork sausages!" (=Monstrosities - still can't hear it any other way though!)
and Tom Jones' 'Sex Bomb' -
"Infra-red semen shoots through the night..." (well it IS Tom Jones!!) I believe it's Infra-red, see me speed through the night...
ah well... ;¬)
i knew someone who believed for ages that the words to Madonna's 'like a Virgin' were actually 'like a fir-tree' ;-)
I believed that "video killed the radio star" by the buggles was "professor plum killed the radio star" I found out when I sang it in my wedding karaoke and my mum in law fainted
I used to sing at the top of my voice "OLD GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN"
You know the song 'All Star' by Smash Mouth? Well, the lyrics go, "She was lookin' kinda dumb with her finger and her thumb in the shape of an 'L' on her forehead" but my friend thought they went, "She was looking kinda dumb with her finger in her thumb and the shape of an elf on her forehead"
I used to believe that in Barry Manilow's "Copacabana" the reason Tony and Rico got into a fight was beacause Rico called Lola a dog....
"And when she finished, He called her Rover"
I am still tempted to sing those words even today.
I thought the Beach Boys song went 'Wouldn't it be nice if we were older, then we wouldn't have to wear a thong.' I sang it once while showering at a hotel and a whole line of people told me in the breakfast room the right lyrics. I still think mine are better.
When my husband was a child, he thought that the line from the Heart song "Crazy on You" was, "Let me throw gravy, gravy on you."
Instead of the real lyrics - "Let me go crazy, crazy on you..."
In "YMCA" my friend used to believe that the line "Young man!" was actually "Gonads!". Her brother never bothered to correct her...
When i was little my mom and my aunt told me that the song "The Macarena" was actually called Morgarena and that it was written for me...i believed them for a good 4 years. Its still a joke between them....haha very funny
I was 19 when I was singing "Dirty Deeds Dunder Chicken" which my now husband looked and said WHAT? The AC/DC song Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheep was on. He died laughing. I just knew Done Dirt Cheap was Dunder Chicken.
Back in elementary school (and really, just about right up until high school), I used to think that the second line of "Do, a deer" was "Ray, a chocolate-golden sun". That lasted until I was about 13.
When we first heard the song 'Super Sex World', my sister and I thought it was 'Super Saiyan Squirrels'. From then on I thought that all romance songs were about Martial Arts squirrels.
My son learned to sing Ba ba Black Sheep in preschool and sang very loudly for his grandmother - - one for the bastard, one for the dame one for the little boy who lives down the lane...
In Eurythmics' song it says:
"Sweet Dreams are made of these"
I thought it said "Sweet dreams are made of cheese!" oopsies!
The first time I heard someone in a rap song go "Drop it like it's hot," I thought he said "Drop it like a sock!"
The song: Do They Know It's Christmas Time
The lyric: Feed the World
What I heard: Vi-vo, whoa, oh-oh-oh-oh
My mom had a friend named Pat back in high school, and he would always sing "Banana Woman" when "More Than A Woman" would play on the radio. XD
