    What is that song by Blondie--is it "Hard As Glass" or "Heart of Glass" or what?

    My aunt (who is insane anyway) used to think it was "Hardee Glass" and I would sing "Party Glass" ....we were all so confused. lol

    Folk musicians commonly call lyric screw-ups "mondegreens."
    Background of the term, and some hilarious examples here:
    http://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=46820&messages=82

    Among my favorites are:
    "There is a bathroom on the right" - John Fogerty/CCR
    "He looked to me to be the eyes of Ish as the smoke ran out."
    (from Mr. Bojangles)
    "Olive, the other reindeer" - from Rudolf
    And, from a Clay Aiken/AI2 website:
    "Feel me up, buttercup!"
    Dogs have owners. Cats have staff. ;-D

    I believe its Build me up, buttercup...

    The sum41 song, Still Waiting. In the beginning it sounds like there saying, "So am I still waiting for this participating." There actually saying, "So am I still waiting for this world to stop hating." That annoys the hell out of me lol.

    My Husband sings "Roam" by the B-52's as follows:

    Roam, Nipsey Russell, Roam around the world

    I also remember babysitting one night (back in the 80's, I'm old), and the little girl was singing "I don't want to take you fishing" instead of "I don't want to be your prisoner" in Madonna's "Borderline"

    I used to think The Rascals said in "Groovin'" said "You and me and Leslie", which made no sense. (it is a PG song)
    Now I know it is "You and me endlessly"

    LOL! What Michael is saying is cha' mon- meaning come on. You know, you've heard people say "cha mon now!" in the seventies?

    My brother (who is older than me) use to sing when he was little, another one of Michael's songs "Dilliard..Dilliard nights..." meaning thriller.

    Everyone has heard of Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl". When I was little I thought one line of the lyrics was " she's been waiting in the white man's world" than later thought it to be "wide van world" because it made more sense.
    A couple of months ago I found out he says ' she's been waiting in her white bread world". *hangs head in shame *

    My girlfriend used to think from the song ?I really want to see you tonight. The lyrics are "I'm not talking about the linen, but what it says is "I'm not talking about moving in" this one is for those of you who will even remember that song
