Another one I just remembered:

Duncan Sheik's "Barely Breathing":

Actual lyric-"I am barely breathing, and I can't find the air"
I heard-"I am barely breathing, and I can't find Pierre"

I was always wondering who this Pierre person was he was trying to look for. It wasn't until a few years ago that I realized what he was saying.

yeah, it can be hard to understand john sometimes. there's that one ccr song, "down on the corner," i think it's called. i thought they were saying, among other things, "you don't need a pinhead just to hang around, but if you've got a nipple, won't you lay your woman down?"

i should just post what the hell i thought he was saying when i was little. needless to say, i think i misheard every single line in the song.

My favorite though is one I read on a misheard lyrics website for Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl".

The person wrote that instead of "You my, brown eyed girl" the lyric was:
"You my, four eyed squirrel"

not because they misheard it, they just thought the song was "more interesting that way"

Now whenever my sister and I hear that song on the radio, we always sing it as "You my, four eyed squirrel!"

i misshear lyrics daily.

bruce springsteen--loose ends, actual lyrics:

"it's like we had a noose and baby without check/ we pulled until it grew tighter around our necks"

what i heard:
"we poured some liquid tied (sp...tyed? you know, the laundry detergent) around our necks"

i never could figure out the words to that song, and it used to drive me nuts.

i think i got them now, but there's probably something i'm still hearing wrong.

I just posted this one on the Now Playing thread I didn't know this one existed!!

The first time I heard the NYC live version of 10th Avenue-Freeze Out I thought that duing the chorus instead of "10th Avenue-Freze Out!" the band was singing "Gimme power, gimme freedom!" Now I only sing that way!!!!!!

Also:

Bruce Springsteen's Atlantic City:
Lyrics: "Now our luck may have died and love may be cold but with you forever I'll stay!"

Me: "Now love may have died and faith may be cold but with you forever I'll stay!"

I like mine better! I had many others but I forgot them all.

I just remembered another one.

At the end of Bruce's Backstreets instead of "Hiding on the backstreets, hiding on the backstreets...", I thought it was "I've become a backstreet, I've become a basktreet..." I still sing like that too.
