the misheard version is the favorite. just think about what it implies. getting caught is just painful.

My favourite U2 misquote, which I think was one of my friends... Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses:

"You're an accident waiting to happen /
You're a piece of glass left there in the peach"


:rofl:

Ugh, even the lyrics by the great lyricists on the list are hardly the best ones they ever wrote.

Just about the only one I think they got right was Bob Marley. I love those lines from Redemption Song.

I'm not. I think it's one of the best songs released in 2004.
