OK, so have you ever had that time where you listen to a song and just COMPLETELY get the lyrics wrong? Well, share those times with us here.

For example, Pennywise, You Can Demand. I thought it kept shouting YOU CANDY MAN!!! YOU CANDY MAN!!!


Rise Against Re Education. I thought it said "Rick Roll" instead of "We Crawl"
Tonight, we stagger out from the basement...


I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody.

The Aaron Carter song "I Want Candy." I originally interpreted the lyrics as "I'm a donkey."

Got another one. The Offspring's "Genocide" when it says "Dog eat dog, every day!" I thought it was "Donkey Kong! Everyday!"

during the chorus of "down from the sky" by trivium, when it says fire rains down from the sky, every person thinks its tears rains down from the sky.

An American saying arse, that's new...
Anyway, I'll remember in a sec.
Edit: In Nirvana's Polly:
Easily,
Have a seat,
Let me clip
Your dirty wings.
Let me take a ride,
Cut youself.
Want some wine
To please myself.

The song's meaning is pretty horrible.

I wanna leave Bennigan's
One bizzare hymn
On a beach the little horses
Mona said
I wanna leave Bennigan's

On a wheel, on a wizard, on a whale
Anna Nicole's mama said, I won't wanna see Anna fall down again
And the wizard, on Aleve a Gump, I know
I said I don't want a whale in a box or a bag

Ah yeah, can you see dem?
Out on the porch
Potato wave
Icy dems
Brown the runway
Anna no, Anna no, I don't wanna see

(make me fries...)

while listening to the last verse of Black Sabbath's "Black Sabbath" i thought ozzy sang "Sand's coming around in a van"
instead of "Satan's coming round the bend."

don't know what made me think that

When Hendrix says "Excuse my while I kiss the sky", I always think he's saying "Excuse me while I kiss this guy". hehehe

Oh also in Hammer Smashed Face by Cannibal Corpse I thought he said Woof in the middle of the song. Terrible band.

the song "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen says "there goes my baby"
and i thought that it was (in spanish) "me gusta el tenis" and that is "i like tennis"
Hola.

I know someone that thought Kings of Leon were singing 'Your Saxophone Liar' instead of 'your sex is on fire!'

And my friend is a big Taking Back Sunday fan and was playing 'makedamnsure' and I thought they were singing 'we like, we like the cabbages' instead of 'and we lay, we lay together'!

Google is your friend here, gents.

Look up "malapropism" and "Lady Mondegreen"

Lots of Pearl Jam songs... but who cares? Eddie sounds awesome singing em either way! haha

Most of Metropolis part one by Dream Theater.

"Death is the frost that's eternal" is really "...first dance eternal"
"Swimming in a cake of pain" is really "...lake of fire"
Could've sworn he just yelled "SAN FRANCISCO" towards the end, as well.

The embarrassing bit is that I'd been singing that song incorrectly for 5 years. 5 years! And mostly in public, too.

For a while in "The Bleeding Heart Show" by The New Pornographers I thought one part was "Lousy with your Gibson" Which I couldn't figure out. Kind of odd because I think A. C. Newman DOES play a Gibson!

However, I looked up the lyrics and it is really "Lousy with your content" And now I can actually hear it.

Oh, Also here's something SOMEWHAT on topic... Nirvana's song Tourette's. Can anyone really understand ALL of the lyrics in the In Utero version? I know the first part is "He can't hear me but maybe he'll have a heart attack"

Blinded By The Light, the Mannfred Mann's Earth Band version.

"Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
another runner in the night"

It sounds like he's saying "wrapped up like a douche" instead of "revved up like a deuce". Go and youtube it, I'll wait.
