    Misheard lyrics

    Now, I know I'm not the only one who ever listened to a song and thought the lyrics were saying one thing when it was actually something else. So let's hear people's experiences with this. A few right off the bat. In "Lucille" by Kenny Rogers, I always used to think he was singing "when 400 children are locked in a jail." When the actual words are "with 4 hungry children and a crop in the field." In "You don't Have to Say You Love Me" by Dusty Springfield, I thought she was singing "just because you can" when in actuality she was singing "just be close at hand."
    That's just for starters. There are more which I will share later.

    I wondered if there was a thread like this somewhere.
    I have many but here's my personal favorite:
    From Wonderful World
    WRONG:
    The bride blessed the day;
    the dog said goodnight.

    RIGHT:
    The bright blessed day;
    the dark sacred night.

    When my son was 5,while traveling in the car he would sing along to the radio in the back seat. I would often turn down the volume to "catch him" midverse. Natalie Merchant was blasting and he was singing along-
    wrong verse: I like to VACUUM VACUUM
    Right verse: I'd like to Thank you, thank you.

    I heard that CCR didn't even realize that everyone thought the lyrics were the bathroom on the right until they were singing a concert and that is what everyone sang.
    A few of my favorites (and a big thank you and to my kids who are notorious for singing the wrong words)

    Tim McGraw incorrect - "I like it, I love it, I want some more nuggets!"
    correct - "I like it, I love it, I want some more of it!"

    Josh Gracin- incorrect "breaker, breaker one nine- she's a big ole bird"
    correct "breaker, breaker one nine, she's a big ole' flirt"

    John Michael Montgomery: incorrect: "trying to find the courage to ask her out was like trying to get off on a water spout" (sorry- gross I know
    correct: "trying to find the courage to ask her out was like trying to get oil from a water spout"

    Now I'm off to think of some more

    :OMG I always thought it was big ole bird too! Wow! Thanks for the correction Sunny!
    Another one that I can remember being teased about endlessly years ago by my best friend's sister who was a die hard Aerosmith fan:
    Wrong lyric: Weird emotion
    Right Lyric: Sweet Emotion
    Hurley: (holding up a Jesus statue) I don't know. I thought there might be a prowler or something.
