Totally true, for years I sang 'another one find a duster, another one find a duster' instead of 'another one bites the dust, another one bites the dust'. Freddie Mercury. Queen. Those were the days.

Anyone else have any shameful songs/lyrics they have misheard and sang? Possibly for years?

"Excuse me while I kiss this guy"

Purple Haze

Thought I would squander this one early doors, being that it is the most obvious influence on my thread.:D

I remember a good mate claiming there was a sea creature called a "lobstacle"...she actually swore blind she'd seen a picture of the little fella'.

I was completely baffled.

"You know" she said in all innocence... "It's even mentioned in that song...", she then went on to croon the following..."I can see clearly now the rain has gone...I can see all lobstacles in my way"

I just shook my head in disbelief.

I AM ACTUALLY PISSING MYSELF AT THAT POST!

Holy shit, that is quality!!!!

P.S. My dad used to sing, "I can see clearly now Lorraine has gone".

It's my mum's name. Still, that post will take some beating!

I couldn't even begin to name all the lyrics from Abba I've mangled. I've liked this group for nearly 30 years, and I still make up the words when I sing along to their songs. I just sort of slur or la la la my way through them, for some reason this has never bothered me.

one of my fave jokes of all time is to sing the chorus of Smells like Teen Spirit wrong, it really annoys people.

In EMF's Unbelievable, the background refrain 'whoa, what the fuck was that?"...

Well, my mum told me he said 'bop-de-bop was that?' and I was furious when no-one would believe me. So naive. So sad. So...terribly true...

When I first heard the song, I would've sworn the chorus went:

"Wake me up before you go girl, don't leave me hanggy wicka yogo"

My friends used to make fun of me in high school because I thought the lyrics to Blister in the sun were:

Party at petes I steal my sheets.


Didn't hear the end of that one for awhile.

well, when I was a 'youngn' I used to sing:

'Take it...to the Olympics...one more time '(which of course I realize now is 'take it to the LIMIT one more time', hence the title of the Eagles song)

and I'm ashamed to admit that just last year my most misheard lyric was (gulp!):

"Play me a song Purty slow, purty slow..."

It wasnt until I realized that the NAME of the Lynrd Skynard song is actually 'Curtis Lowe' and that I had been singing it wrong my whole life!

:D :p

I never really though this was the lyric, but the Cream song Badge has one. When Clapton sings "Then I told you 'bout our kid, now he's married to Mabel..." it really sounds like he says "Then I told you 'bout our kid, now he's not a tomato."

Listen to it and tell me I'm wrong...

When I first heard Bananarama's Venus on the radio, I was convinced she was saying penis.

"She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your penis, I'm your fire
At your desire"

I still have my doubts.

I remember one guy singing SOAD and saying "I don't think you trust...in...my...let's go to west-side".

Haha.

I used to think that in Blink 182's "What's My Age Again?", he said " I walk alone ", instead of " I wore cologne ". Hey, innocent mistake.

Besides that infamous Grease malapropism, there's that Billy Ocean song (jeez, doesn't that show my age) that I always thought was called "Caribou Queen."

In Blister In The Sun, it sounds to me like they're saying, "Big Hands, I Know You're The One". But those could be the right lyrics.

Now for a gross one:

When I first heard the Mariah Carey song Without You I thought the first line was:

"No, I can't forget the semen on your face as you were leavin'"

It's actually:

"No, I can't forget this evening or your face as you were leaving"

Yeah, that's right - it's an ode to "self-love."

I remember hearing Australians thought The Go-Go's "Our Lips Our Sealed" was "Alex The Seal"


And a mean-spirited take on Hendrix has always been, "Excuse me, while I puke and die."

My huzzie recently revealed his mangled lyrics to Madonna's "La Isla Bonita":

"Tropical the island breeze" = "Chocolate-covered onion rings."

Eew! For years he sang that with a straight face.
