Subject: Funniest misheard lyrics

Written By: Mergal on 12/27/04 at 9:02 pm

I'm Down On Bended Knee----Boyz 2 Men  "I'm going to swell up my brain. Say I'm sorry. Jump on you're fingers." I knew I wasn't hearing them properly, but that's what the lyrics sounded like!

Every Time You Go Away----Paul You  "Every time you go away, you take a piece of cheese with you."  I actually thought those were the lyrics, but I was only nine.

Take On Me-----A-Ha  "Baby lone. Baby lonely. Baby lone. Baby lonely....." I didn't take the time to actually listen to the lyrics.

Years ago, there was a very lovely song called 'Send In The Clowns' (written by Steven Sondheim, I think...) - and somewhere in the lyric is this line...'don't you love farce...'

Which, if you're not paying attention, could quite easily become...'don't you love arse...'...!!

Carly Simon's "You're So Vain"

The line that says you're with "the wife of a close friend"
my ex always sang you're with "the wife of the postman"

a well known one is from Jimi Hendrix- Purple Haze "excuse me while I kiss the sky"
                                                                                    or
                                                                      "excuse me while I kiss this guy"

Well there was The Night Chicago Died by one hit wonder "Paper Lace".

"And he kissed my mother's face, and threw mustard at her face."

I don;t know what the REAL lyrics are but they cannot be what I thought I heard.  ;D

On FRIENDS Phoebe makes a comment about Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" being the most romantic song.  She says "you know the one..hold me close now Tony Danza"  Well I thought he said that too!!  I never really thought about it but when I was a kid I always thought thats what he was singing and then she said it on Friends and I was thinking "I thought that too!"

"I sometimes see your pants outside my door" instead of "I sometimes see you pass outside my door", from Lionel Ritchie's "Hello".

When I was into metal as an early teen, we used to try to decipher the lyrics of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Tank, Savatage, Celtic Frost etc. Then when we later got copies of the actual lyrics, we found out that in many cases, we were completely wrong, with some hilarious results...

"Easygroove" instead of "eezer good", from "Ebeneezer Goode" by The Shamen. It should be said, though, that this song was deliberately meant to be misheard, the chorus went:
"eezer good, eezer good, he's Ebeneezer Goode"- the song was released around the time that the Ecstasy culture was at it's peak in the UK.

My two most embarrassing ones were:
ELO, "Blinded by the Light", where the real lyric is "revved up like a deuce" and I always heard "wrapped up like a douche", and Asia, "Africa", where "Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti", and I spend many fruitless hours wondering what the hell "a limpus" was.

Del Amitri- 'Roll to me'



Correct Lyrics  ~And I don't think I have ever seen a soul so in despair

What the 7 year old Beth used to sing~ And I don't think I have ever seen the soap scum in the sink.


Well...obviously I was wrong....but that's what I always heard.



~Beth :)

"Kitchens to the right"
Now that one confuses me.

I thought Bryan Adams's song "Summer of 69" was all about a sex position.

I used to work with this woman who told me when she first heard the Eagle's Take it to Limit, she heard the line, "Put me on a highway" as "p*ssy on a highway".  Now, I can't hear that song without thinking of that and laughing.
