Songs ruined by misheard lyrics?

My husband is a bugger for changing lyrics to songs.
Most recently it was the Rag n Bone Mans 'Human' that he ruined for me.
He changed to words to 'I'm in a human casserole' instead of 'I'm only human, after all'
Before that it was the song that goes 'ciao, adios, I'm done' which became 'shower de horse, I'm done'
Now when I hear them I can't hear the originals!
What songs have been ruined for you?

Macy Gray - I Try "Though I try to hide, it's clear, I wear goggles when you're not here".

Or any of the lyrics on kissthisguy.com!

"Got a KitKat"

Instead of got to get that (I think) black eyed peas?

And many more

Christmas song I dislike. I know it's "Are you waiting for the family to arrive?
Are you sure you've got the room to spare inside?"

I always hear "Are you waiting for the family to arrive?
Are you sure you've got the will to stay alive?"

Yes, I am a grinch at Christmas usually.

Bette Davis eyes by Kim Carnes

My husband sings ‘she’s had better days besides’! Drives me insane.

It’s a common one but I cannot see a sale without humming to myself the Rita Ora “you know you only want it cause it’s half price now”. I annoy myself

For ages I used to think it was:-

'I'm in the mood for dancing, romancing...
You know I shat on a star tonight'

wrapped up like a douche in the middle of the night gringrin

Mine's Pulps 'disco 2000':
'Deborah do you recall? We would shit on the wall'

It was woodchip on the wall.

"Paparazzi " by Lady Gaga. All I can hear now is "Robert Runcie " .

For months I genuinely thought the song ‘feels’ was ‘don’t be afraid to catch fish....I know you ain’t afraid to catch fish...’

Bamboofordinneragain Thu 02-Nov-17 20:54:05

Wait, wait.... if it isn’t about fish, then what is it about?????

@awwlook - love that - am now imaging a grandma shouting out "those bastards" at full notch at a kids party smile

Brian Adams ‘I want to runter you’. Friend at school thought it was very rude indeed!!

Someone on here posted:

Don't go out tonight
'Cause it's bound to end your life
There's a bathroom on the right.

hmm😂

My friend thought that Nelly Furtado - Maneater went, "...makes you want more buffalo", instead of "...makes you want more of her love".

My other friend's grandmother used to love the thong song but thought it was "let me sing that song", instead of "let me see that thong".

You’re so vain “with the wife of the postman........wife of the postman”
