    Default Misheard song lyrics

    Did ya'll ever mess up song lyrics when you were younger? I mean, just hilariously wrong?

    I can think of a couple. I've been a Genesis fan since I was like 3 years old or something, so I messed up a lot of Genesis/Phil Collins songs. For instance, in Invisible Touch, I thought Phil was singing "She sees the hat and invisible touch it", so I'm sitting around wondering why he's involved with some chick who steals hats lol. My friend actually thought the song was about "invisible duck shit" until like 2 years ago. And in that Anita Baker song "Sweet Love", instead of "I feel no shame" I thought she was singing "I feel like shit" (I actually sung this in front of my family at a cookout when I was little and everyone busted out laughing).

    The best was came from my cousins though. The Four Tops' "Bernadette" became "burn to death", and instead of "I'll be there" it was "I'll be damned." There were also a couple of Morris Day and the Time songs that my cousins always got wrong, but I can't think of them now. Oh and this isnt a lyric, but it's still funny: my cousin used to watch The A-Team when he was a kid. Of course Mr. T always said "I pity the fool" but he thought Mr. T said "I'm a pitiful fool."

    Anyone else have stuff like this happen?

    How's this...

    Steven Miller - Big Ole Jet Airliner

    I have no idea what that freakin' song was about. The only part of the song I THOUGHT I knew, was the chorus.

    I'm driving along with my S/O and sing just that ONE line...

    "Big Ole Jed and Aliza"

    Well, the S/O laughs his ass off.

    Instead of "I've got a feeling somebody's watching me," my sister used to say, "I caught a field mouse and daddy's watching me." It's from that song by Barry Gordy's son where Michael Jackson just sings the chorus (the line above).

    There's a bunch more songs, but I can't think of any at the moment.

    My problem is not paying attention to what I am singing.
    For example: there is an Sawyer Brown song called 'All these years'

    I had NO idea that I was singing about a woman cheating on her husband and getting caught in bed. It wasn't until I actually saw the lyrics written down that it 'clicked'.

    I think sometimes I need to stop and think a little more

    She likes adventure with security
    And more than one man can provide
    She planned adventure feeling sure that he
    Would not be home 'till after five
    He turned on the lights and turned them off again
    And said the one thing he could say

    and


    She said, "You're not the man you used to be"
    He said, "Neither is this guy"
    She said, "There's some things you refuse to see
    But I guess sometimes so do I"
    She made no excuse why she was lying there
    She said the one thing she could say

    I'm usually pretty good with song lyrics, and if I'm not sure I have to look them up on the net, otherwise it does my head in!!

    One of my friends though that in the R Kelly song 'The Greatest' instead of 'I am an eagle' she sang, 'I am a negro'

    My uncle sang the Gabrielle song as 'Vallerieee' instead of 'Out of reach' He thought the song was about a woman called Vallerie.

    Someone else I knew sang a song, I can't remember what it was or who it was by but the words were 'standing strong forever' and she sang 'Stan is gone forever'

    It's always pretty funny catching someone in the act and watching them squirm as you tell them the right lyrics and laugh at them

    I found this link with loads of misheard song lyrics and you can vote for wether you think they're funny or not...

    We use to sing the Rolling Stones Beast of Burden. WE thought he was singing "I'll never leave your pizza burning. I walked for miles, my feet are hurting, all I want is some pepperoni with cheese."

    Games with out Frontiers: We would sing: She's so fucked today. It really is She's so popular.

    LA Woman by The Doors: We would sing: LA woman, Subway afternoon. What it really is: LA Woman Sunday afternoon.

    For He's a Jolly Good Fellow: WE would sing: For he is a Charlie Defallow.

    This isn't a song but my mother use to say to us, "This isn't a resturant." We would mock her and say, "This isn't a nestertait." She said for years she didn't know what the hell we were talking about.

    When I was little, I thought that Christmas song was Good King Wesces.

    Good King Wences' car backed out,
    On a piece of Steven.
    When the snow lay round about
    Deep and crisp and even.

    I pictured this king with a crown driving this big Cadillac type car, and of course he gets stuck (it was snowing, all big cars get stuck in the snow!) and he accidentally drove over some guy named Steven, who I figured probably slipped and fell in the snow under the car. What an idiot I was.

    I always used to mess up Pearl Jam lyrics when I was a kid. I thought "Don't go on me" was "Dunk the wombat" and "Can't find a better man" was "Can't find the butter, ma'am".

    I heard a song on the radio before, I have no idea who it's by, it was some rapping song, but anyway, half way through it I just stopped working to listen. I wondered why the hell these men were rapping about Kate Bush. Then the DJ interrupted the song to announce that was 'whoever it was' singing 'kick push'

    I like that one! That site's quite amusing. Some are a plain daft though. For example:

    Police: Every Breath You Take

    The real lyrics were:
    How my poor heart aches...

    But I misheard them as:
    How my poo hole aches...
