Yep...


Also, the following isn't mine, but it's funnier than any of mine so I'm using it.

"the snipers are harder to see, my friend"

"the snapper's the heart of the sea my friend"

Ah, yes. The wise snapper. He is indeed the heart of the sea! lol.

oasis - don't look back in anger

my words:

where nobody knows if it's not ok

correct lyrics:

where nobody knows if it's night or day

unfortunately since i've been singing the wrong words to the song since 96 i can't sing the right lyrics cause i'm too use to singing what i always did.

From Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas:

Misheard lyric:
"Carry on you will always remember,
Carry on, with the evil suspenders!"

(I was 6 at the time).

Correct lyric:
"Carry on you will always remember,
Carry on, on the eve of this madness!"

the pogues "thousands are sailing"

"did you work upon the rialroads
did you rid the streets of crime
were your dollars from the white house
were they from the five and dime?"

i thought mr macgowan was saying 'daughters', not 'dollars'




i've misunderstood at least one line from pretty much every clash song that joe strummer sings. i can't help it, i love the music, joe strummer is god, but he's impossible to understand...

in garageland:

"back in the garage with my bullshit detector"

i thought he was saying "motion detector" for about a year before someone told me that i might not want to play that on the radio cos i technically can't get away with playing music with the word bullshit in it...


nearly ALL of "safe european home" i've had wrong

normally i don't really think other words are being said, i usually can't figure out what's being said at all, so if i'm singing along (which much to my friends and family's dismay, i do quite frequently) i'll usually sing some nonsensical rambling of sylables that don't really make a word...like in electrical storm...car alarm won't rencham back to sleep...didn't know it was "let you" (or "letcha") for a little bit, and now i can't seem to remember the correct words...

Jesse Malin's "Riding On The Subway"...I always thought he said "A man sells pencils in the heat"...but it's "A man sells pretzels in the heat"...which makes a helluva lot more sense. I was always like, pencils????? WTF???????

true, dat.
I once mistook a Clash lyric in Straight to Hell.
the part where it goes:
Photo photo graph of you....
I thought (about 10 years ago) that he was saying:
Photo photo graph fuck you.

Love that song though

Of course, we all have, but sometimes I find the ones I thought I heard were better than what I found them to actually be and was disappointed

Judge Yourself by the Manic Street Preachers

Supposed Lyric: Blessed be the blades/blessed be the scythes
Actual lyric: blessed be the blades/blessed be the sighs

doesn't even make sense. damn those manics.

I used to make up most of REM's lyrics...they never used to print them in the album sleeves and Stipe is unintelligible much of the time

Was kinda fun though, wish I could remember some of the good ones before the internet came along and enlightened me.
