Misheard Song Lyrics?
 
I was just listening to a classic rock station, and the Steve Winwood hit "Higher Love" came on. I really like the tune, but it made me recall when I was a younger guy and I heard the song for the first few times. I was under the impression that the song was called "HIred Love", and I was certain it was about trying to convince someone to buy him a prostitute.

Then, there's the Speedwagon tune 'Riding the Storm Out', which I thought was 'Light In the Whore House'. No misheard lyrics really other than the title part...

And last but not least, there was a hip hop tune that came out in the early 00s, I believe. It was super popular. It was by Fifty Cent, or someone of that sort. The chorus of the song, if you could call it that, was "everybody in the club getting tipsy", which I heard as " everybody in the club gettin' tits." I'd hear the song, and it would get stuck in my head, so I'd be walking around singing it. This went on for three years, before I was corrected.

I think you mean ERYBODY IN DA CLUB GET TIPSY.

I thought it was "revved up like a douche" and not revved up like a deuce for a while.

Misheard lyrics are called mondegreens (Google it, it's funny).

Earthrocker, you have sooo failed the musical inkblot test!

When our band was covering White Room we debated whether it was "until my seas are dried up" or "until my seeds are dried up" ...

I thought Huey Lewis was singing "I want a new truck" in his song "I Want A New Drug".

It's pretty prevalent in metal, with all the incoherent grumbling, but Meshuggah's Rational Gaze always makes me laugh. He says: Our light-induced image of truth, and even though I know that now, I still here I like juice! every single time.

And I'm not the only one, apparently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFbVlYXKnDk Warning, you might wanna turn down the volume.

I was absolutely convinced that one of the lines to Empathy by Crystal Castles was "I bet all of these idiots feel dumb"

Turns out it's "Down down cities come down, on me".

Needless to say it made this idiot feel pretty dumb

Sting/The Police

The line is "How my poor heart aches, with every step you take" but all I hear is...

"How my pooh hole aches, with every step you take"

You're welcome. I remember seeing him on his first tv appearance doing the Celine Dion/hotdogs bit.

I was a little confused about Jimi Hendrix when I thought he was singing: "Scuze me, while I kiss this guy."!

Love this thread - my favorites.

1. Blinded by the Light by Manfred Mann's Earth Band

"Wrapped up like a douche another runner in the night" - think maybe we all thought that was right.

2. Dream Weaver by Gary Wright

My little brother one day was singing "OOOOO Green Weiner".

3. Escape (The Pina Colada song) by Rupert Holmes

My friend was singing "If you like beans in Granada"

4. Bennie and the Jets by Elton John

"She's got electric boobs" - again one I think we all thought was right...

5. Panama by Van Halen

We knew better but still sang "GRANDMA!"

I like to staple the vicker! When he played the actual song I lost it. That was classic.

Fat Bottomed Girls is one that's always been misheard by me. For longer than I care to mention...

Actual lyric of third verse:

"Hey, listen here
Now your mortgages and homes, I got stiffness in the bones..."



Misheard lyric by brady:

"Hey, listen here
Now your mortgages and homes, I got syphilis in the balls..."
