Ok, so I know that this is not going to really fall into any serious conspiracy category, however it is weird that pretty much all of us do this, regardless of language or nationality. What I am talking about it when you hear a song, and you are quite sure that you have learned the words to said song, only to find out later when you are singing that song in front of someone, or just hear it and catch the correct lyrics. It can be embarrassing but I find it just plain damn funny. Here are my examples, see what you can throw in here:

From my childhood: I always thought they were singing "Hark the Harold Angels", and had to wonder who the heck Harold was?!

Most recent: Faithfully. I thought, for years now, that the lyrics said
'I hate to leave', not 'faithfully'.

Come on guys, make me laugh!

Let me see, what other examples do I have....

In the song 'drops of jupiter', I could have sworn they sung

'Tell me, did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the milky way to see the lights all faded
And Van Halen is overrated'

the real words are not 'van halen is over rated' they are 'and heaven is over rated'

I hate to have to do this, but I will

I heard this song on the radio on the way to work, and I was convinced I knew the lyrics to it, and I was like, this band sucks!!!

Here's what I thought the lyrics were.




It's actually all the way turn it up.

But decide for yourself!!

Misheard lyrics:


She was a fax machine
She kept her modem clean

The Police

Eat hot spare ribs, in the material world, hot spare ribs in the material world.

I'm sure this is fairly common, but come christmas time I always thought the lines to God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen were, "To save us all from Santa's power when we were gone astray."

I wasn't brought up in a christian household, so I had no idea who this "Satan" person was, but I knew all about Santa, and it was christmas-time, so obviously that's who the song was singing about, right?

It never made sense to me that we'd need to be saved from Santa.

When I was at primary school, everybody routinely chanted the first line of the Lord's Prayer as;
"Our Father, we charge in heaven".

Well I suppose if enough of us decide that the lyrics are something else then they would be the correct words regardless. There are a few songs that I have heard that changed it's meaning once I looked up the actual lyrics, kinda popped my bubble. Ignorance is bliss.

How about, "Don't go out tonight, you're bound to lose your knife. There's a bathroom on the right".


"She's got a chicken to ride, it's in my hair".

or my personal favorite

"Sugar fried, honey butts"

My cousins were convinced that Devo's "Girl you Want" said...
"She's just a girl, she's just a girl, the dirty one!"

My two cents...and let's not forget the myriad of wrong lyrics surrounding "Blinded by the Light"

My favorite so far is definately 'she was a fax machine, she kept her moden clean'!

Talking with some friends about this thread, they voluntered this one:

She said her daughter loves Miley Cyrus and was running around the house all day singing Miley's song 'The Climb', only she was belting out the words 'It's the lime' instead of 'it's the climb'

I always sing the wrong words that sound like other things, examples:

Deep cover...Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog:

I say:...cause it's 187 on tha mutha f'in clock!

It's supposed to be...
Cause it's 187 on an undercover cop.

I just figured that out a couple years ago!

Hollaback Girl...Gwen Stefani:

I say:...cause I ain't no Harlem Black girl!

It's supposed to be...
Cause I ain't no hollaback girl.

I'm sure theres more! lol

I always have a problem with Steve Perry songs...(or Nirvana)...

I used to think the Go Go's "Our Lips Are Sealed" was "Alex the Seal"....

or, "Voices Carry"...I used to think it went "Hush hush....keep it down now....this is scary!"
