Well I've only just figured out that the lyrics for 'Concrete Jungle' by The Specials aren't 'Concrete jungle, animals are after me, concrete jungle, incest on the street." they're actually "it ain't safe on the streets"....x

In "These Colours Don't Run" by Iron Maiden, the lyrics go:

"Paying for my freedom
with your lonely unmarked graves."

I always hear:

"Paying for my freedom
with your laundry on most graves."

Gwen Stefani-Now that You Got It.

"The Award is a purple heart, it could be yours, if you earn that medal yeah you can be my boooy."

I heard "the award is a paper hat, it could be yours."

My little brother just misheard Rob Zombie's Superbeast as 'Superfish'.

I nearly passed out laughing and think it's a better song premise actually..

^ :D

For a while I thought a line in Grinderman's song 'Heathen Child' was "happy as an asteroid", turns out it's actually "heavy as an asteroid".
Shame, I preferred happy as an asteroid.

I have some pretty hilarious misheards in Czech but in songs that are in English I either hear correctly or don't hear at all and have to google the lyrics.
   However, once my uncertainity about English vocabulary led to a funny misinterpretation. In Nick Cave's ''Do you love me'' there is a line ''in my bed she cast a blizzard out''. For months I couldn't figure out why she would release a reptile in his bed. I simply confused a lizzard and a blizzard.

In the song 'Death Valley Superstars' by Murderdolls, I misheard the line 'A ticking time bomb ready to blow' as 'A ticking tampon ready to blow'. Even when I know the right lyrics it still sounds like 'tampon'.

The Princess thought that the lyrics of Cry Me A River (The Justin Timberlake version, not the good version) were "Tell me you really love... (baby go on and just) tell me you really love"... despite the title of the song being "Cry Me A River"...

I thought that Hole's Celebrity Skin said "Model, actress, hug a waitress" instead of "model, actress, hooker, waitress."

For a long time, I thought the words to The Pussycat Dolls' song "When I Grow Up" were "... wanna see the world, drive nice cars, I wanna have boobies"
Apparently it's "groupies".




I heard exactly the same ...

There's a song called "Mr. Dobalina, Bob Dobalina" (I think it's a quote from a film) it was running a few months ago on the radio when K. and me drove to his house and we both went like:
Did he say "Double wiener"?

ô_____O

(It has been a running gag since then.)

The Evil Clone makes a point of saying 'The hotdogs go on and on' when singing the Titanic theme tune. Considering I first heard it from her when I was six and my mum wouldn't let me watch Titanic I was wondering what hotdogs had to do with a sinking ship. I imagined them all sat on the deck eating hotdogs and waiting to die.

I overheard Greenday's Boulevard of Broken Dreams one summer when it was on every radio station (probably when it was released) and even though I knew the lyrics I was still hearing 'I waddle on'. The source of much hilarity on a road trip :S

With regards to the pussycat dolls one, i think there are 2 versions, so both groupies and boobies are right :)

I think it's the funniest thing ever when I realize wrong lyrics my favorite band, Horrorpops has this one song "Julia,"  I think the first line was

"Hi, Hi, Julia.... *nananana*.. I can't understand the rest."

I can never fully understand what Patriccia Day is saying, but she  sounds beatiful.

"The Sporting Life" by the Decemberists.

"There's my goat cheese, looking down!"

It's actually "there's my coach, he's looking down!"

I love this thread. It reminds me that I'm not the only one with a filthy mind when it comes to lyrics....

I went to see the Horrorpops a few years back! It was so much fun and their go-go girls were awesome! Yes Ms. Day has a great snarl, I can't understand what she's saying half the time either but your quite right Eruaphadriel it doesn't matter a bit.

When I sing along to 'Julia' in the car it's "Hey, hey, Julia, the something and the something that you'll something something..." which amuses the other passengers greatly.

In the Garbage song 'I'm only happy when it rains' I thought the line "You know I love it when the news is bad" was "You know I love it when the musics bad" which frankly I think is a much better line ;) Aren't I conceited!

My friend misheard 'Beautiful monster' as beautiful lobster.
I prefer her version.

I always always always hear "secret asian man!!" instead of "secret agent man!!" In fact, it's a joke in my history class now. -_- Glad y'all think I'm so amusing, 4th hour history. Yeah, I'll be here all week.

Anyway... I always heard the line "Good job Judas/Good old Judas" in the song Blood Money from Jesus Christ Superstar as "You're not Judas/You're a Jesus."

GIRL by Robots In Disguise

And don't you want to be in the gang, because ladies need a modern vocab.

I heard "ladies need a Madeleine McCann."
