    Hey, another fun thread. I bet this has happened to you to, you heard a song, and misunderstood it. Recount your most funny misheards here.

    To kick it off, I'll mention a double-mistake. It sounded like this to me, though I never could attach a meaning to it. It's a line from Hot Chocolate's "Sexy Thing":

    >> ... I believe in knuckles
    since you came along,
    you saxophone... <<

    Typical scene from the car with my mom:

    Me and mom are listening to Madonna's new song "Hung Up"
    Mom: Wow, Madonna is really putting her self out there with those lyrics.
    Me: Well, she is known for pushing the envelope musically. And, actually, those lyrics are quite tame, especially for her.
    Mom: Are you kidding? "Waiting for your cum every night and day ..."
    Me: Uh, mom ...

    "Oh, ho it's my dick!"

    They kept singing that line over and over and I couldn't believe that they were saying that on the radio.

    Then, I found out that they were singing, "it's ma-gic"!

    The Pogues - Fairytale of New York:

    Female - You're a bam, you're a punk
    Male - You're an old slut on Chocolate and something and something something something a boat!


    Actual:

    Female - Youre a bum, you're a punk!
    Male - You're an old slut on Junk, lying there half dead on a drip in that bed!



    I actually prefer "You're an old slut on chocolate!" It's a much better image, and a fantastic insult!

    From Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody:

    "I see a silly whistle of a man:
    Scary moose, scary moose,
    Will you do the fun dangle?"

    "The owls above have a devil of a son for me."

    One of the funniest misunderstandings I have heard is from Pink Floyd's Another Brick In The Wall:
    "No dog's orgasm in the classroom..." :confused:

    I'm going to have to go with the Hendrix classic:

    "'Scuse me, while I kiss this guy".

    Also another one from Dylan's Mighty Quinn (aka Quinn the Eskimo):

    Actual: [FONT=Courier, Courier New]... But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here ...
    Misund.: ... But when Quinn the Eskimo gets the fish ...

    It made sense to me, left some questions open, but not in a dramatic way.

    We do Woaaaoha-oh!"

    That one song of Alanis Morisette (spelling?)...

    I always understood: "...You've seen all my light and you love my dog..."
    Did find out later she meant "dark"... until then I kept on wondering...

    From Barry Ryan, Eloise, instead of the chorus "Eloise", I heard "And I breath...".

    From Albert Hammond, Free Electric Band, I heard "... and I gave it up for music, and a free electric man." instead of "... electric band."

    Can say I have it with choruses.

    Britney Spears, Toxic:

    "... With the taste of your lips I'm on the ride, your toxic cum slipping under..."
    Somehow wondered how his cum came to his lips... Unfortunately she sings tongue... cum would make the song more interesting...
