Considering that the very first question I can remember entertaining

*which is: “Why does she call me a doorbell?” when a friend of my parents exclaimed that I was adorable*

concerns misheard language, I love how speech and lyrics are misheard. Another for instance, (again, not a song – those are innumerable) was when the family was watching a video of PREDATOR. There was one line (“I'm going to get that motherfucker”) that none of us heard well and, since I was sitting closest to the TV, they asked me.

“Oh,” says me, “he said ‘Gotta get me some dinner’” (I was pregnant at the time and perpetually hungry. Yeah, that's my defense and I'm stickin to it)

Whacha got?

Um, “Redhot love” in Radar love by Golden Earing. That's pretty common though since it sorta fits…

“I don't know, But I've been told, Beetle-legged woman ain't got no soul” -Black Dog Led Zeppelin. It's “Baby that”, not Beetle-legged. Still don't know what he says for most of the chorus.

There are other songs…

Aaahhh. Black Dog. :)

Speaking of Zeppelin, ozone, ever hear this song? I would never have guessed the title of the song at all without looking at the actual album.

I mean, is he really saying that?! How is he actually saying that?!

In the song “Don't Walk Away Eileen” my little sister misheard “a fist full of sand” as “a fish full of sand”. She was pretty confused.


I suppose this isn't really the same, but I also love when things are heard out of context and make no sense.
For instance, what my older sister overheard: “Trotsky is also a magnet!”
(I had given my dad a finger puppet Leon Trotsky that was also a fridge magnet)

Lol! How can anyone possibly make ‘Darlene’ sound like ‘double E’.
Sometimes I think singers DO say the missheard stuff and just go back and change the lyric sheet after.

Misheard lyrics:
God, there are so many of these! The two that always stick in my mind are Jimi Hendrix's classic “Scuse me while I kiss this guy!” (which should obviously be “the sky” ) from Purple Haze, and “It's a hard egg!” from Bonnie Tyler's “It's a Heartache”.

Misheard film quotes:
In Lady Macbeth's famous sleep-walking scene (from Macbeth, natch!) there's a moment when she sighs a heavy, guilt-ridden sigh. The doctor watching her says: “What a sigh is there.” In Roman Polanski's 1971 film version, Lady Macbeth is naked when she sleepwalks. As tragic as this scene is meant to be, when I first saw the film, the entire audience burst into laughter at this point since the doctor gazes at Lady M's naked body and says (what sounds like): “What a size they are”!

I was disappointed when I found out it wasn't. I mean it sounds so progressive, defiant and “60'sish” :(

I didn't get what he was actually saying for the longest time

I swear Frank Zappa's version of Purple Haze actually is saying that… But hey. It's Frank.

Frank IS kissing a guy.

In some live versions Jimmi pointed at the base player and said the wrong lyric.
(captain obvious)

I always mishear songs and what people say but can only think of th moments where I have selective hearing hearing the words “I went behind her and banged into the door” as “Behind her I banged her” because I have a weird mind and that's a terrible example.

“Wait did you just say ‘my dick is hot’?”
Cause I have said that before

Hahaha! I just realised that the title of this thread refers to the CCR song -Bad moon on the right. :)

I'm sloooow.

One song I've always had trouble with is “It's my Life” by the animals.



It's a hard world to get a break in
All the good things have been taken
But girl there are ways
to make certain things pay
Though I'm dressed in these rags,
I'll wear sable, some day.

Hear what I say
I'm gonna ride the serpent
No more time spent sweatin' wrecks
No more complaints
It ain't no use, I'm breakin' loose,
Holdin' me down, sticking around

But baby (baby)
Remember (remember)
It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think what I want
Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
But some day I'll treat you revine

There'll be women and their offers
Who just want you for others
Are you gonna cry
When I'm squeezing you dry?
Taking all I can get
No regrets
When I … open your eyes
And leave only money
Believe me honey, that money
Can you believe, I ain't no saint
Who complains!
So girl go out
Any doubt

And baby (baby)
Remember (remember)
It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think what I want
Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
But some day I'll treat you real fine

———-
Real lyrics:

It's a hard world to get a break in
All the good things have been taken
But girl there are ways
To make certain things pay
Though I'm dressed in these rags
I'll wear sable
Someday

Hear what I say
I'm gonna write this sermon
No more time spent
Sweatin' rent
Hear my command
I'm breakin' loose
It ain't no use
Holdin' me down
Stick around

But baby, but baby
Remember, remember
It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think what I want
Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
But some day, I'll treat you real fine

There'll be women and their fortunes
Who just want to mother orphans
Are you gonna cry
When I'm squeezing them dry?
Taking all I can get
No regrets
When I
Openly lie (ha)
And live on their money
Believe me honey
That money
Can you believe?
I ain't no Saint
No complaints
So girl throw out
Any doubt

And baby, and baby
Remember, remember
It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think what I want
Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
But some day, I'll treat you real fine

It's my life and I'll do what I want
Don't push me
It's my mind and I'll think what I want
It's my life
It's my life and I'll do what I want
And I can do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think what I want
You can't tell me
It's my life and I'll do what I want
