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!

Pancakeflipper Fri 01-Feb-13 22:33:41

Not for 1 minute do I believe you reckoned Madonna was singing about Bill Oddie. Tim Brooke-Taylor is more her type.

Wolfiefan Fri 01-Feb-13 22:35:17

Beelzebub has a devil for a sideboard!

Feed the lion my eye.

yaimee Fri 01-Feb-13 22:38:27

I might not 100% have believed that bill oddie were the real words but I couldn't for the life of me fathom what they were and that's what fit in beat for me so that's what I sung, I'm disappointed now! Also, I didn't know it was Madonna! I know I should be ashamed!

When I was younger I used to sing "I shot the cherry" out loud instead of sherrif...

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream McGlintoo

I could never work out what a McGlintoo was...... blush

DD has a toy wiggles guitar, which I think sings about wanking a dog. DP assures me I'm wrong, but hasn't worked out what the lyrics actually are...

Shellington Fri 01-Feb-13 23:11:07

Lion King
"and believe I say"
is apparently
"it's a leap of faith"

Whatever, Elton.

Shellington Fri 01-Feb-13 23:13:36

sadeyedladyofthelowlandsase Fri 01-Feb-13 23:54:42

Someone I know (no, really) thought that 'You can't touch this' was actually 'king justice.'

And that 'Here comes the hotstepper' was 'Here comes the odd zebra'.

LaVolcan Sat 02-Feb-13 00:03:50

Isn't that what it is? Must google to find the real words.

"I'm a Cilla Black fan on bike" is apparently not the message that Meatloaf was hoping to get across in Bat Out of Hell.....

Midlifecrisisarefun Sat 02-Feb-13 06:44:55

DD used to sing 'more than a woman' as 'more than a womble'

scrivette Sat 02-Feb-13 06:47:37

YY Crosspatch. I only found out the real lyrics on Mumsnet a few weeks ago.

'My love has got no money, he's got his strombelice'.

ErikNorseman Sat 02-Feb-13 06:50:08

That Florence and Calvin Harris song is currently stuck in my head. I hear 'you're giving me sexy airplanes' which I know cannot be right, but I have no idea what it is.

greenandcabbagelooking Sat 02-Feb-13 07:09:20

It's not "the devil is the skies". I learnt this circa one year ago.

barefootwalker Sat 02-Feb-13 07:12:51

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.

As a teenager, listening to the Dirty Dancing soundtrack I was a little horrified when my Mum began to sing "hold my arse..." instead of hungry eyes,I had to correct her. Oh the embarrassment!

My mum thought Take that's 'All I do each night is pray' was 'all I do is shine my face'

A few years ago now but still makes me smile.

TheNebulousBoojum Sat 02-Feb-13 07:37:02

DD used to sing 'Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go...with a shovel and a pig and a walking stick...'
She had numerous reasons why the dwarves would take a pig with them.

wooga Sat 02-Feb-13 08:09:06

This old farney,now we don't talk anymore - Cliff

And I feel like icecream - Will Young

'cause you sentenced me to paradise - Bruno M.

Meatballs,meatballs,meat-meat-meat-meat-meatballs - some eighties song,can't remember who!

Funnily enough just yesterday I was listening to REM The Sidewinder Sleeps & thinking about 'calling Cheryl Baker up'. Still not sure what the words are but I'm pretty sure Michael Stipe isn't singing about phoning a member of Bucks Fizz grin

catgirl1976 Sat 02-Feb-13 08:27:18

There is a dance tune that goes

"Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Can't get enough. No, no, no, no"

DH spent many a year trying to look cool in nightclubs whilst singing

"Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Can't get it up..........."


Maebe Sat 02-Feb-13 08:35:09

That Ocean Colour Scene song. I always thought it was "write another song like 'Billy Heard the Day He Caught the Train'", as if that was the full name of the song, rather than writing a song that was like the one Billy heard that day. On worked that out a few weeks ago!

chanie44 Sat 02-Feb-13 09:10:22

My niece (aged 10) thought that Michael Jacksons 'billie jean' was 'skinny jeans'.

TLC 'creep' - I always sing 'you're a creep'. It was only recently that oh corrected me that its 'so I creep'.

DebK2012 Sat 02-Feb-13 09:15:37

My daughters friend thought the words to I'm sexy and I know it were when I wobble by girls be looking like gooey fly instead of when I walk on by girls be looking like god he's fly confused

A "deathrow hard-on" always confused me too! I assumed it was caused by the effects of the chair! shock

On Tears Are Not Enough I thought there was a bit that said 'yes you showed your penis, yes you showed your chuff' shockblush

Madonna - Isla Bon ita

marjproops Sat 02-Feb-13 20:56:37

real lyric is ''thats just being''!!!

and isnt there a janet jackson song where she sounds like she's saying ''in dog shit'' ???

CatsRule Sat 02-Feb-13 22:23:22

I always thought night fever went:

'I guess it might be the night fever' - how non-committal!

LetUsPrey Sat 02-Feb-13 22:59:58

Thought a line from "What A Feeling" by Irene Cara (I think) was "take your pants off, and make it happen".

It's "take your passion" although either would work I suppose.

Elmotickler Sat 02-Feb-13 23:05:16

I thought Elvis Costello had a song called "I love a zombie"

"I love a zombie, he's here to stay"

laughing so much at this thread I'm disturbing my feeding baby grin
"Try" by Macy Gray - my mate thought 'my world crumbles when you are not near' was 'I blow bubbles when you are not here' - I like the wok wobbles version too! grin

Dsd when about 4 or 5 used to sing 'I am a professor, turn my clothes around', instead of 'I'm a different person, turn my world around' in Lola's Theme by Shapeshifters. She denies it to this day but we still laugh at her grin

lottie63 Mon 04-Feb-13 03:18:59

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

scratchandsniff Mon 04-Feb-13 06:03:04

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.

*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."

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

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

"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.

Don't step into my, Peacock Soup.

A polish car, and a screaming siren.

Paul Weller needs to enunciate.

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"

ScrambledSmegs 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.

"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 father's mistake"

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."

TandB Mon 04-Feb-13 18:53:15

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....
