What's your favourite misheard The National lyrics, gang?

Here's mine, and they both come from Racing Like A Pro;

one time you were blowing young ruffians

your mind is racing like a pronoun



But I have others.

See you inside watching swans on TV
Livin' and dyin' in New York it means nothing to me

On "Gospel," I still hear "we'll stand by the pool and throw out our good news."

I actually thought that was what it was. Or maybe 'good minds'.

I love that "it's a common fetish for a doting man to ballerina on the coffee table, cock in hand" reads exactly like a misheard lyric, but it's the actual lyric.

I'll explain everything to the geese


Back in the day I had another, less printable, notion of how that line could be misheard.

My girlfriend hears “follow me now as I finger the ghost” in Sufjan Stevens’ Vesuvius.
