There was another thread like this, but it's been dead for 2 years, so I figured it would be better to make a new one than awkwardly necro the old one.

Basically, what lyrics have you misheard that are better incorrect?

For me it's Bricks by Rise Against
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgUJh-7S0zc

at about 55 seconds, the line is "We run on the fumes of injustice."

I always heard it as "We run on the fumes of angel's dust"

I think it's a better line my way

I always thought this verse of the Trooper said "The smell of Horses, Blood and sweat", which to me, makes more sense.

The bugle sounds as the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath <---------------------------THIS ONE
As you plunge into a certain death

Purple Haze, when I was about 12.

"Scuse me, while I piss this guy"

Legitimately thought this was a song about peeing on men for a year.

"and big 30 foot smurfs"

many people think that's the lined. the demo version came up on my ipod. realized it's "30 foot smirks" makes way more sense. but way more fun the other way. although i think it's gone the way of "don't bring me down, bruce" where so many people thought it was the wrong thing so they just changed it to that permanently.

The Beatles-I Want to Hold your Hand

Line: I want to hold your ha-a-and, I want to hold your hand

What I heard: I want to strangle you because you made my sandwich wrong. Did I ask for turkey, bitch? Did I? Get over he-NO! I said get over here! I'll show you how to make a god damn sandwich! Your face between my hand and the floor, you slut! Oh yeah don't tell me you don't know that I know about you and Percy next door! It's called a window you stupid skank! Good, fine, leave! What are you going to do anyways? Find Percy? Good luck living on his minimum wage! I'm going to find some Asian woman and you'll be sorry, you hear? I don't care if she splits up my band or not, she'll be better than your stupid ass who can't make a sandwich!

I mean, I heard this line for years and swore it was that.

Quote by Fender Dane.
The one with Sean Paul was pretty fun, since he hardly speaks english, so I wouldn't know what he was supposed to sing anyway.

The misheard lyrics in the Maiden song was a litte far-fetched.


I just now heard this song for the first time, it's not far-fetched. Of course it's obviously made 100% wrong.

in Slipknot's 'Before I Forget', 'I was a whale before I was a man' turned out to be 'I was a world before I was a man'. Me and my friends still think of it as the former though.

Complete Control by The Clash

My dad always sung the line 'you're dirty, you're filthy, you don't know you're alive.'

Whereas the actual lyrics are 'you're dirty, you're filthy, and you're not gonna last'.

I think my dad's is better.

Chris Cornell - Flutter Girl

It's "You don't want to know what I've lived
You don't want to take what I give
And I give nothing for free"

But I thought the last part was "cause I give my pain for free".

The last verse of "Diary of Horace Wimp" by Electric Light Orchestra

Horace, this is it!
He asks the girl if maybe they could marry.
When she says "Gladly,"
Horace cries - woo hoo.

My version

Horace, mississip.
He asks the girl if maybe they could marry.
When she says gladly
Horace cries, boo hoo.

Before I looked at song titles on Van Halen's Different Kind of Truth - I thought Dave was singing "Day Tripper....rolling" instead of "Big River....rolling". Sang it wrong for 2 weeks before I actually looked at the back of the CD and realized the title of the song was Big River.
