I thought it was I BET it rains...
Mind blown.

I had the same with Begging You. I thought it was Peggy Sue. With a line, "One eyed lady". Which was actually "Why baby?"
It all made sense once I knew.

What are your misheard lyrics?

Gold on the ceiling was homeless feeling for years

Reminds me of Jasper Carrott
Beelzebub has a devil for a sideboard. Me.

Livin' On A Prayer by Bon Jovi. I thought it was "Tommy used to work on the DART". The DART is a train in Dublin and it makes complete sense that a rock band from New Jersey would sing about it in the 80s smile

My mum loves lady gaga and thought it was "cherry pie cherry pie no he can't read my poker face"

'Golden Brown' by The Stranglers.

I thought it was "Lays me down with my Rancheros'. Rancheros were a crisp brand that were around back then. I don't know if they still make them.

Oooh, I got my first real sex dream, bought it at the five and dime.

my brother thought Bob Dylan - Blowing in the Wind was "the ants, my friends are blowin in the wind, the ants, are blowing in the wind".

Apparently Neil Diamond didn't sing about the Reverend Blue Jeans. I disagree. smile

I'm living on sexy carpets

Sure that was florence and the machine with Calvin Harris and actually said I'm living on sweet sweet living. But I thought it was sexy carpets.

Fun and sunshine there's enough for everyone
Ohh, just pissing in the sea....'

And I thought 'she kept her moles with shovels in a fancy cabinet'

Turns out it was moet Chardon

Mondegreens. There's a whole website dedicated to them.

www.kissthisguy.com ['Scuse me while I kiss this guy :D ]

Was just listening to this one tonight:

It's more than a feeling
(More than a feeling)
When I hear that old song they used to play
(More than a feeling)
I begin dreaming
(More than a feeling)
'Til I see Marianne walk away
See my Marianne WALKING TO WORK confused

What are you telling me?

I always sing: "I guess the rain's down in Aaaaafrica "

I was just explaining to DS the other day how this is such a cryptic song

Can’t read my, can’t read my, no he can’t read my poker face.

That’s what I was though it was, my mum was the queen of mishearing song lyrics though, we’ve always said about her, if you don’t know them make them up!

Hong Kong elements in the air
Cymbals crashing everywhere.

Only it wasn't until years later that I realised it was actually Harmful Elements.

If you haven't put Peter Kay misheard lyrics into YouTube then please do. It's hysterical!

Mummyme1987 Sat 21-Oct-17 00:12:11

YouTube search that was supposed to say.

Down in Dino's bar in Rhyl. Boys are back in town.

Once he said it I now can't hear anything but Michael Jackson and "my burgers are the best" and Celene's " my hotdog will go on."

The nightsky, before I look ot up I am just telling you I always thought it was "charisma", not cherry pie grin
