getting song lyrics wrong

Had SO many things I was going to do today, but it rained, so I didn't do them. Had an incredible MN day (on here for hours!). I've cried and then laughed and then cried again at threads.

Inspired by the one that made me laugh out loud (the thread about making inadvertent suggestive comments, if any of you want to check it out)

Have any MN-ers got song lyrics wrong?

Mine include
When the moon hits your eye like a big piece of pie....

Tea - a drink with German bread

Jumboli, cod-fish pie...

And my sister's was
Sing a new song, Chick Your Teeth Out.

(can provide answers if any of those leave you guessing). What are yours?

I'm thinking the second ones off sound of music?

I'm convinced the line "useless generations" in the manic street preachers song Repeat is actually "loses an erection"

If you ever need a laugh look up Mondegreens on TVTropes, there's pages of these

"Just let me staple the vicar" springs to mind

bungmean Sun 12-Jun-16 11:15:44

The Elzybub has a devil for a sideboard....

Even though I now know it is wrong, I can't sing anything else.

Ironic -' Its a death row pardon' I hear 'Its a death throws hard on' confused

fatmomma99 Sun 12-Jun-16 12:04:12

I got them all apart from Just let me staple the vicar. Which song is that?

Mine are
Dean Martin
Sound of Music
The Carpenters

We Are Family lol

I do this all.the.time.
DH loses the will with me. I now Google lyrics of new songs I like just to be sure!

Fall Out Boy "It's a God damn arms race" sounds like "it's a God damn arse rape" at times. I had to double check with my sister the first time I heard it and she laughed her head off at me until she heard it. Now it's all we hear.

One of Taylor Swift songs I thought she was singing about Starbucks lovers...not a long list of ex lovers

Queen, Living on my Own,

'I get so lonely, lonely, yeah - got to beat some gits round the head'.

That's a tad violent for you Freddie,

PocketFluff Sun 12-Jun-16 21:17:40

I used to think the Fall Out Boy line was "golden arse face"!

ImNotJoeMyNameIsHarry Sun 12-Jun-16 21:44:14

There's a song my dad listens to where it says "mums in the kitchen cooking Sunday dinner" but I always here it as "nans in the bathtub cooking Sunday dinner." My head must think it's a very strange house.

CharleyFarleyy Sun 12-Jun-16 21:46:33

I was singing to The Kooks "Shes got 30 kids, she moves her in hew own way!" And DH was like you what confused

absolutelynotfabulous Sun 12-Jun-16 21:50:44

Dance, dance wherever you may be
I am the lord of the damp settee...

notamummy10 Sun 12-Jun-16 21:52:54

Taylor Swift - Blank Space.

The actual lyric is 'long list of ex-lovers' but I always hear 'Starbucks lovers'

MsVestibule Sun 12-Jun-16 21:54:37

I thought it was:

'I got my first real sex dream'
rather than
'I got my first real six string'

for years.

QueenVictoria11 Sun 12-Jun-16 21:56:58

My DS 7 sings the line from Lukas Graham , Seven Years as " I only see mangos" instead of "I only see my goals". Really sounds like mangos though!

SlinkyVagabond Sun 12-Jun-16 22:05:58

when my dad sang Lilac Time, the line "when purple evening shadows Mark the time of day" transmogrified into "when purple people eaters mark the time of day". Why?

JC Superstar, Gethsemane:

"God, Thy willy's hard"

Forever in blue jeans by Neil Diamond. As a child I thought it was 'Reverend blue jeans' about a hip vicar who wore denim!? vestibule I love yours!

brokenbone Sun 12-Jun-16 22:15:03

My friends ds favourite song used to be Adeles chasing cavemen! And now that's all I can sing when I hear it. grin
