Default Misheard lyrics

List yours here.

I used to think "I wish that I could feel like a cool kid" was "I wish that I could feel like a pool cue."

There was a boon out in a spade
But a clown lifta ova his fade
Yak is may and when Ottawa A
The night we called in a day.

I hurt a song of the spheres
Like a monoman in my hears
I haven't a heart left of Bray
That night we caught in day

Saw through the dog
Lahuhubbaoutinnasky
Sad though his saw
No bluer than a he deny

Daboon winnoun
Destars waggone
Butta sun diddle rye pour a doll
There was suthy leffasay
That night we callin' aday

Saw through the dog
Dahoodubanowindasky
Sawthatloozong
Nah blue was in zee wazzai

Dah moon wedow
Astarz waggone
But the sun diddle rise with da dog
There wasn't a thing leftazay
The night we calledinadeh

In the song Budapest, I thought "I'd leave it all" was "Why D.V. dough?"

Bon Jovi's Bad Medicine, the chorus sounds like, "Your love is like bad venison!"

In Want Ads, I thought "Experience in love preferred but will accept a young trainee" was "...but will accept a young Chinese."

Mr. Mister had a song called "Kyrie", which incorporated a Greek phrase often said in prayer that meant "Lord, have mercy".

"Kýrie, eléison, down the road that I must travel
Kýrie, eléison, through the darkness of the night"

However, as a kid, I heard:

Carry a laser down the road that I must travel.
Carry a laser through the darkness of the night.

I thought "Heard It In A Love Song" was "Purty Little Love Song." Great song BTW.

Bobby Brown's "Every Little Step" contains the chorus:

"No matter what your friends try to tell ya
We were made to fall in love.."

But it sounds like, "No matter whatcha French fries tell ya,
We were made to fall in love..."

This isn't a lyric but it was misheard.

In one of my sister's high school classes the students were assigned to write a paper about euthanasia. One boy misunderstood and wrote a paper about young people in Asia.

Heck, that wasn't even misheard so much as misunderstood. I figure he heard it exactly like it sounds. If I was the teacher, I think I'd give him full credit...once I stopped laughing, anyway...provided he wrote a decent paper about Youth in Asia.

And not the band Youth In Asia?
That seems like a missed opportunity!

As for misheard lyrics, this one's my favorite:

I thought "Ain't nothing gonna break my stride" was "Ain't nothing gonna break my spine."

I really like Roth, but sometimes I can't understand what he's saying in between Indian yelps and banshee screams.

At one point in Runnin' With The Devil, he sings "I'm livin at a pace that kills"
I always thought it was "I'm livin and I respect you"

A friend of mine said he used to think this song was about marijuana and that they were singing, "Hell, fire up."

I used to think in "Spiderwebs" by No Doubt that the line "I have to screen my phone calls" was "I have to scream my balls off." Oddly enough, online I found a couple others who said the same thing.

Yeah, well Manfred Mann purposely slurred it so it sounded like that. Springstein's original is quite clearly "deuce" though. He even was recorded to say that the song didn't become popular until Mann made it about feminine hygiene.

In Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA," I used to think he was saying "got into a hotel jam" for "got into a hometown jam." Actually, it didn't matter, though since I still knew he was enlisting to avoid jail.



It's ironic that Reagan tried to get this song for campaigning (thinking the chorus was partiotic) but was denied by the Boss. Apparently, neither Reagan (who quoted it in a speech) nor his people listened to the rest of the song.

In Celebration by Kool and the Gang, I thought "Yahoo!" was "Get Off!"
