I used to look after a little boy who would sing "the ants go marching one by one- RAAA! RAAA!". He was very disappointed when he saw real ants and they weren't giant monsters.
There's a spanish line in the Clash song Spanish Bombs which I've always sung as "oh my coloured thong" I just googled it and it's really "oh ma corazón" I've been trying to google a translation but can't find one.
and finally, the Macy Gray song "I try"- I always heard "I wore goggles when you are not there" when she sings "my world crumbles when you are not there"
My sister used to sing "i can see clearly now the rain is gone, i can see all testicles in my way" instead of obstacles.
one of the only times i remember my mum getting angry. oh boy did she get in trouble!
When I was a kid I used to think 'Electric Blue' was 'Electric Poo'. No wonder Mum kept playing it and laughing at me :-/
I thought cheap wine said "cheap wine & a free leather coat"
Makes more sense to me
And another misheard:
"Let me go on, I've got a twister in this song!"
I always thought that Brittany spears song with the line "show me how you want it to be..." Was "show me how you wanna do me..."
I always thought it was so cras for a singer who appeals mainly to underage teens!
ohhh .. how appropriate since I have a song miss quote stuck in my head at the moment (DH is playing me 80's tunes to get it out lol)
"Sweet Nothings" by Calvin Harris (quite a new song)
His line: "When you're giving me such sweet nothing"
My line: "You're giving me sexy elephants"
Listen to the song and exchange all of his 'such sweet nothings' for 'sexy elephants' ..... you'll never sing along to it the way it's intended again
BTW ... I actually cannot stand the song
DH used to sing 'take me to the plaza bar..' Instead of 'take me to the clouds above (that dance tune which I have no idea who sings it)
I used to think lyrics were 'I'm your p3nis, I'm your fire, your desire' I stead of 'I'm your Venus...'
I have more but can't think of them now
My friend thought that 90's song 'How Bizarre' was "how was I? How was I?" instead of "how bizarre, how bizarre".
I used to think that song 'Bette Davis Eyes' was "she's got better days her size". WTF?!
