Misheard song lyrics (sorry)!
There is a song that has been playing on the jukebox at work quite a lot recently, I found out today it's Erotic by Madonna.
Until now I've been singing 'Bill Oddie, Bill Oddie, put your hands all over my body'.
I'm pretty gutted now I know the real words!

Sorry if these are repeats:
Three, two, right foot (Eton Rifles)
I can see Dierdre now Lorraine has gone (I can see clearly now the rain has gone) - was actually a spoof Our Tune but still makes me laugh.

My (adult) nephew used to sing aggressively along to The Prodigy "Smash My Picture!"

Made me chuckle, especially as he appeared to be deadly serious.

Clocks by Coldplay "shouldn't i pull off my head?"

lyrics are "shoot an apple off my head"

Tbh neither make that much sense...

Taio Cruz - "Ayo, Galileo." Turned out to be "Gotta let go". blush

[reviews posts] I am crap.

Dude looks like a lady by Aerosmith

I always thought it was do the dragon lady. DH pissed himself laughing when he caught me singing it but I thought the dragon lady was a kind of dance. Still sing my version when I hear it

My baby he stinks of pee, but that alright by me (Footloose, I think)

Never could see why she wouldn't mind!

For ages i thought Shania was singing "I can't believe you kiss your carpet knife", slightly fixed by this until I realised it was car at night.

my Mother thought it was kiss your cock goodnight!!? blush

I'm on a roll now grin

Fairytale of New York.

I could have sworn it was "And then they sang a song, the rare old Latin tune." I assumed it was about them singing Adeste Fideles, with it being Christmas and everything....

TandB Mon 04-Feb-13 18:48:09

Missed the Macy Gray ref - I swear it's "I wear goggles when you're not here."

"when I called you last night from Tesco" and "death row hard-on"

Glad it's not just me with those two!

I always thought I had these lyrics completely wrong but I turned out to be spot-on:

wise men save
near a tree by a river
there's a hole in the ground
where an old man of aran
goes around and around
and his mind is a beacon
in the veil of the night
for a strange kind of fashion
there's a wrong and a right

An old uni housemate and I regularly debated the lyrics of "died in your arms". He thought it was

Ra! I just died in your arms tonight - about a sun-god worshiper

I thought it was

Ma! I just died in your arms tonight - about someone having an affair with their stepmother. Especially since I was sure there was something in about "loving by proxy...my father's mistake"

When I called you last night from Tesco- Super Trooper

What Abba were doing in a supermarket I never did know!

Shake it like a qualified teacher - Hey Ya

Came out during teacher training so that's what we used to sing!

The Sidewinder, REM, is apparently: "Call me when you try to wake her up ..."

I prefer calling Jamaica - it's easier to sing as well grin

JaponicaTroggs Mon 04-Feb-13 17:56:15

I Will Survive - a friend of mine singing "Do you think i'd grumble"grin. My parents thought Alison Moyet's Weak In The Presence Of Beauty was "I go wee in the presence of you dear"!

"Golden brown, texture like sun, lays me down with my Mancherons"

I always thought it was ....lays me down with my machine gun grin

OhIWishThereWasABook Mon 04-Feb-13 17:47:57

Oh ooooo lying on a bed of nails (bad romance, gaga)

Funniest one 8 yr old dd

'Ohhh, your shop is on fire!)

Lived in London too long perhaps?? grin

DebK2012 Mon 04-Feb-13 17:30:17

Haha peanut! A friend of mine is adamant the song like a g6 is actually like a cheese stick shock

ScrambledSmegs Netherlands Mon 04-Feb-13 15:32:27

that's ok, My willy's good - Nirvana, Lithium.

Tbh the misheard version works just as well, if not better, that the real line.

ButternutSquish Mon 04-Feb-13 12:55:56

REM Sidewinder lyrics are "Coming to wake her up"....I think confused

Agree with so many of these especially the "I believe in Milko" & "Trombaleez"

Don't step into my, Peacock Soup.

A polish car, and a screaming siren.

Paul Weller needs to enunciate.

fluffyraggies England Mon 04-Feb-13 07:14:00

"I like peeing in the larder" (i like Pina colada) - don't know the artist.

"Frozen liver, wrapped in cling wrap" (?) - Roxy Music.

"The runway lies ahead like a great false dong!" confused - Brian Adams.

MortifiedAdams Mon 04-Feb-13 06:22:43

"Popdom Beach, Im in trouble deep.....now ive made up my mind, Im keeping my baby"

*You picked a fine time to leave me Lucile,
four hundred children and a crop in the field*

grin That baffled me for years.

In Nicole Scherzingers Wet it sounds like "take me home and pull me off in the shower" when its actually "cool me off."

Every time you go away you take a piece of meat with you - I was only about 10 when that was in the,charts.

at school - Dance now where ever you may be said the lord of the dance settee - imagined all these god squad folks jumping around on a big sofa.

'MISS MILLER! No! We will not let you go! Let him go!'...

Who the f* is Miss Miller??? And - It was only VERY recently I learned the correct version
