Misheard lyrics...

Have you ever misheard the lyrics to any U2 songs? If so, share 'em (misheard lyrics stories are always fun to hear about).

And if you've misheard lyrics to songs other than U2 ones, you can share those, too. .

I know that I often misheard U2 lyrics, but I can't say one right away. Maybe with a bit of thinking... *thinks*

I used to think that the opening of Ultraviolet went...

"Sometimes I feel like I don't know...Sometimes I feel I chicken out." Sometimes I still slip and sing it wrong!

I know there have got to be others but I can't think of any at the moment...

For years I thought the line "What more in the name of love" from "Pride" was "One man in the name of love."

The only one I can recall right now (I know there have been other ones! ) is from "Walk to the Water". I heard "He said he was an artist/but he really painted billboards" as "The city wasn't honest/with pretty painted billboards".

I still can't think of anything good! That's so depressing - when I don't need those slips of my tongue they're everywhere!

I used to think "Pride" said "One more in the name of love" and "I Will Follow" was "Your eyes make a circle, I see you in your wedding veil."
I have a ton more misheard U2 lyrics but it's hard to remember the wrong ones once you've learned the right ones.

I think I've misheard just about every line of "Elvis Presley.." from UF. I had such a hard time hearing the words it's become somewhat of a joke and became my signature line

That is a tricky one, isn't it?

For a while I thought it was One More.

I used to think that half the lyrics to "I Will Follow" were nonsense syllables. Like, instead of "If you walk away, walk away, I walk away, walk away..."

I heard:

"Wah-hoo-way-wah-hoo-way-ah-wah-hoo-way-wah-hoo-way"

Dear, sweet Bono before he learned to enunciate. So cute.
