When my cousin and I were teenagers, she

The song "The Girl is on to you" by Bette Midler has a line
"She's grown much wiser than you realize," which I heard as "She's grown much wider than you realize."

So, it turns out that Neil Diamond song ISN'T about a country pastor that goes by the name of "Reverend Blue Jeans."

In the song 'fear of the dark' (Iron Maiden) I used to think it was 'fear of the duck'. Couldn't quite figure why everyone was so afraid of that duck...

You know REM's song "It's the End of the World"? The chorus says, "Can I have some time alone?" but I always thought it said, "Can I have some Tylenol," which made a lot of sense to me. If the world were ending, I'd want a LOT of Tylenol.

I used to believe the song 'Felice Navidad' was 'Release Navidad' and was a protest song about some Latin American political prisoner. Never could work out why it then went on to say 'We want to wish you a Merry Christmas'. And this was well into my twenties.

I had always thought the song "Material Girl", by Madonna was always saying...

Because we are living in a cheerio word and I am a cheerio girl..

Mama cheerio...Mama cheerio...Mama cheerio world..

Sometimes I still sing the lyrics that way!

In the Shwayze song "Corona and Lime" there's a line that goes "I ain't met her but I'll get her when I do". I always thought that it said "I ain't mad about her ghetto attitude".

That makes more sense to me.

There is a church song called "Companions on a Journey." It goes: "We are companions on a journey, eating pread and sharing life."

When I yas little I thought (and sang) "We are camels on a journey eating bread and cherry pie."

I used to believe the words to my dad's favorite song(Mysterious Ways, by U2) were, "Shamu the mysterious whale!" Instead of "She moves in mysterious ways!"

When I was young I believed that in Queens Bohemian Rhapsody they sang..."Hes just a poor boy from a poor family. Spare him his life from these pork sausages!" when it was actually..."Hes just a poor boy from a poor family. Spare him his life from this monstrosity"

Also when I heard ABBA singing Super Trouper I thought the lyrics were..."I was sick and tired of everything, when I called you last night from Tesocs" when it's actually "I was sick and tired of everything, when I called you last night from Glasgow"...oops!

For the longest time I thought Credence Clearwater Revival's song "Bad Moon Rising" had the lyrics

Don't go around tonight
Well it's bound to take your life
"There's a bathroom on the right"

The line is really

"There's a bad moon on the rise"

In the song "Sowing The Seeds Of Love" by Tears for Fears there is a line "if you're a worried man, shout about it. For a long time I thought it was "If you're a wanted man, shout about it" and thought it was weird because if you were a wanted man I assume you wouldn't want people to know..

Cutting crew- I just died in your arms tonight...

I just died in your arms tonight, it must have been some kind of cheese. I should have walked away.

Must have been a really pungent stilton.

I don't want to know what the real lyrics are, it'll spoil my the bad stilton experience in my head.

In the Beatles "Help", they sing "and I do appreciate you being 'round", "'round"of course being abbreviated for "around". However, I thought they were singing about appreciating someone literally being round. I thought it was nice they were so appreciative of fat circle-shaped people.

This is actually a mis-heard lyric of my husband's:

In RUSH's song "Free Will" - My husband believed that the lyric was "I will choose a Bathosphere" instead of a "Path that's clear"...

I will choose Free Will!

I guess that is why he did not choose oceanography as a lifelong career...

My path is clear!

Because my mom was a big fan i used to listen to The beatles all the time.
In Lucy in the sky with diamonds I thought they sang "The girl with colitus goes by" when it's actually "The girl with kaelidoscope eyes".
Also Michelle the french part sounds so much like "Sunday Monkey won't play piano song, play piano song" when it's actually some french babble.
And then there's the classic "She's got a chicken to ride" (ticket to ride!)
Sorry Beatle people!

The Beach Boys song "Kokomo" has some lyrics that go "... that Montserrat mystique". To this day, I still here "mounds of rotten steak".

There is a song we used to sing at Sunday School that went 'Jesus' friend of little children, be a friend to me, take my hand and ever keep me close to thee....
Now my little ears heard and my little mouth sang,
Jesus scared of little children be afraid of me....

I always thought the lyrics to "Wannabe" by The Spice Girls were

"If you wannabe my lover, you gotta take off my pants." I was like 8 and sung it this way and my mother heard and about had a cow, but that's how my best friend sang it so I believed it to go that way.
