funny lyric misunderstandings

hey,

i think everyone kinda knows that:

you hear a song and then start singing it without really being sure what the lyrics are...

 

what were funny misunderstandings of lyrics you might have sang yourself for some time? or maybe you liked the line you understood even better than the original one?

 

i can remember that i always sang (and still do) 

"she gives appropriate shape to my heart"

instead of

"she keeps it pumpin' straight to my heart"

when we used to play NIRVANA's Aneurysm.

what's your own favorite misunderstanding?

 

 

cheers

First time here in the Spotify forums, so sorry if I obliterated the unspoken rules here

Before the Chorus, it's supposed to be:

"Give me, give me, give me"

But no matter what, I always hear:

"Kermit, Kermit, Kermit"

Very fun topic @mkmusic

 

What it supposed to be:

"All my friends are heathens, take it slow"

 

What I heard:

"All my friends are eating steak and snow"

Ohh, misheard lyrics... :') Naughty things are heard!

 

The following song is pretty notorious:

spotify:track:1foMv2HQwfQ2vntFf9HFeG:small

Youtube comments are full of people that heard the same as I did, initially
"I like big tits big tits big tits...."

And once I played the track during a Skype videocall, and my friend heard
"I like s*x s*x s*x...." (I suppose that speaks of the audio quality...)

 

It's really supposed to be "It's electric-ic-ic-ic-ic-ic"

 

Unfortunately I'm not mishearing lyrics too often anymore. Headphones are too clear. :')

@mkmusic one of my favourites is 'Skinny Love' by Bon Iver

 

I always sing it:

 

"And I told you to be badass" in the bridge.

Just suddenly remembered one track from years ago:

Another electronic dance track was released and it became very very popular.

I was a member of a certain site for young people of Estonia. Every now and then there was some topic in the forums, or someone coming to the chatroom with the following question:

 

"What's the name of this song where it says "Like a cheese sex" or something?"

 

That's the song:

@Sebasty ha good one

 

Instead of 'I don't have to worry', I now hear 'I'm a cassowary' in Flume's remix of Hermitude's Hyperparadise
