Fun with misheard lyrics

I'll start

John Mellencamp's Keywest Intermezzo (I Saw You First)

I heard, "She stirs the ass in the glass with a delicate finger"

Actually, and more obviously, "She stirs the ice in the glass with a delicate finger"

PS- NO "Excuse me while I kiss this guy" from Hendrix' Purple Haze. Too obvious.

This one comes from my best friend who was busted and teased mercilessly for singing this lyric really loudly and confidently in the car one day (HeartlandGirl will appreciate it):

"I got me samosas to write on, to write on"

actual line: "I got me some horses to ride on, to ride on"

("Horses" by Tori Amos)

I haven't had samosas in a long time... It's been even longer since I've written on one...

joyful, didn't one of your friends or a roommate get busted botching up a Radiohead song? I don't remember the details, but I remember it being hilarious. Maybe something from Idioteque?

I heard- Hark the HERD of Angels sing...
After my entire family ridiculed me I was corrected
Hark the HEARLD Angels sing...

Still can't live that one down!

Yikes! I had problems with the same song!

I heard "with angelic oldsmobiles" instead of "with angelic host proclaim." Don't ask me how I got a car out of that, but I did! And an angelic one at that!

It's the same person--my former housemate (who moved back east last month ). He never looks at lyric sheets or titles. He "learns" songs just listening to them in his car and identifies them by track number and never gets the words right! It's hilarious. Yes, there was a botched Radiohead lyric (from HTTT I think?) that I mentioned in here but now I can't remember what it was.
