Misheard Lyrics

I find those instances of "Now I can't unhear it" incredibly funny; whether due to lack of enunciation or the true lyrics simply "getting lost in the mix," often what one random person hears is better than the actual lyrics.

The following song is based on sampling (and i guess sentence-mixing to some degree) so it might not be a true example but i'm always looking to laugh and can only ever hear "i **bleep** through the night."

What are some other good ones?

One of the worst ones for me is.. also making me listen to the song considerably less often.
No matter how I try, all I hear is "Oooh sexy children!" shouted out during the chorus. 😬

spotify:track:5uFNJWnU1imR5jC5FuSLQM:small 

It's supposed to be "Sweet sensation".

 

Save me.

Sorry if this might be a bit of low hanging fruit, but who can't hear Banana Tiger?

**bleep** for me its Fleetwood Mac's Rhiannon - I always think she says "she rings like a PRAYER in the night" but its "BELL" lol.

I just learned yesterday that nowhere in this song do the words "burn it down and get me out of here" occur. Nothing even close. Lyrics sites say it's "daddy, daddy." I am shook.

All the time I spent in my youth trying to figure out what they were really saying at the end of this song, which sounded like “fried chicken,” was wasted because they were, in fact, saying “fried chicken.”

I always thought it was "Hit me with your pet shark,"

turns out it was "Hit me with your best shot"

Another misheard lyric is from the song "Good for you," by Selena Gomez.

I thought it was, "I'm farting carrots," but it was actually "I'm 14 carats."

Bad moon rising

I hear there's a bathroom on the right instead, of ¨There's a bad moon on the rise¨

This song is rather infectious, both the sound and the lyrics.. the lyrics especially.

spotify:track:5MoD6vwEeKoFvNYPQQj0pp:small 

but I can't stop hearing the following line
"How I'd trade my arm for just another kiss"

:')

(heart)

 

I should mark down random mishearings now, because they happen more or less commonly.

Actual lyrics: "You really are the best..."

I hear: "You really are a b@$+@rd..."

Hah, it's hard not to hear anything else at that point 😄

 

Anyway.. recent occurrence:
I was sitting in the kitchen one morning, alone at home and "pigeon-sitting", keeping my eye on our pet pigeon and reading some ghost stories on reddit (which I really shouldn't do). Kitchen radio was playing, spewing out hit after hit. All old well-known tunes.

Then this came on:

spotify:track:4XX1pFUkQOZTYp6Hb6a6Ae:small 

 

The longer this played, the more i wriggled on the chair, both smirking and grimacing.
I don't even want to say what I kept on hearing, but is it even possible not to hear this song all wrong?? 😅😂

I think they should just go ahead and change the official lyrics to "frozen fruit" because no one is ever going to hear anything else.
