Mis-heard song lyrics thread

Any song lyrics you found out you heard wrong/were singing along incorrectly only to find out what they really were?
I’ve got a few but can’t remember them all. I’ll start with one:
As kids, my brother & I thought Sadé’s song “Smooth Operator” that she was singing “ooh boppa-red-eye”

Smashing Pumpkins song:
I thought it was “Despite OF my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage” but it’s “despite ALL my rage”

I thought that was " despite of my age" till now! :joy:

Miley Cyrus had a song a few years back about wrecking balls. I asked my son while driving (drunk, probably) if Miley was a lesbian now. He was, like, wtf… Why? I said it sounded like a kind of gay pride song since she is “coming in like a rainbow”…

As a child I liked my dad’s music. He liked Evil Woman and I must have heard it 3 times a week my whole life. Advancing to when he was teaching me to drive. I’m doing good so he is allowing me to alternate shifts driving from Indianapolis to Virginia Beach. I’m driving and he is playing DJ. I asked why he is confused about being a woman. My dad has never let me live it down that Evil Woman sounded like “he is a woman” to me.

Finally, TOOL. 4° the correct lyrics are “It brings us closer than, dying and cancer and crying” but I pretty much always hear “It brings us closer than dying, than 2 children crying”. I like it better like that. The imagery is kind of perfect. That song is so fucked up, but I love it. Who am I kidding, I loved all of Undertow.

Garth Brooks when I was young always the it was, I’m shavin instead of I’m shameless…lol. I remember my dad ask me why would he be singing about shaving.

My Daughter is 17 and when I was in rehab she sent a recording on my awnsering machine to my rehab room phone. I had to see my therapist and talk about why it was inappropriate and in bad taste. I thought it was great!!!:joy::joy::joy:

As a Dutch boy, Elvis singing “return the Zündapp” seemed a bit odd, but hey, Elvis was a bit odd in the 70’s. He must have lent it to a friend. And it was a cool moped.
