Misheard song lyrics

Harbinger

The Last of Us.
MGMT kids, i used to think it was "Enjoy yourself, take only what you neeeeed from it" which was kinda cheery, then i found out it was "Control yourself, take only what you neeeed from it" which isnt so happy.

In the rainbow connection. I used to think it said "I know they're all we can see"... it's actually "I know they're wrong wait and see".

Super interesting one, I know.

Manfred Mann's Earth Band: Blinded by the Light
Heard: Revved up like a douche for a runner in the night.
Lyrics: Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night.
 

Nashida

She do a blep
Dido's "White Flag"

Heard: "I will go down with this shit, and I won't poke my eyes out and surrender."
Lyrics:"I will go down with this ship, and I won't put my arms up and surrender."

I remember when my local station first played this song it got swamped with phone calls asking "WHAT did she say?"

Here's the song, btw:

Bruno Mars: Grenade

"I'd catch a grenade, jump in front of a train!"

I always hear "jump in front of a tree!"

The 1975: Girls


The chorus sounds like "Is it Tescos! Breaking hearts. I shop outside TES-CO!" instead of some generic lines about "JUST GIRLS"

Reba MacEntire's "Life Out There":

The real lyrics: "She doesn't want to leave. She's just wondering if there's life out there."
What I heard: "She doesn't want to live. She's just wondering if there's life after death."

Barbie Girl was a great one. Made me think it was about a sex doll.

I heard:

You can do me there; undress me everywhere!

I was let down when I heard the actual lyrics.

you can brush my hair and dress me anywhere

More Metal Than You !!!
Seeing as it just came up on my iPod and it ws really stupid, I used to think Metallica's "Sad But True" was actually "Scent Control", and then I'd get confused as to why Metallica was so concerned about bathing.

Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock's "Joy and Pain", I always hear as "joint pain".

Persona 3's Opening song may be heard by some as:

"Burn my bread".


Also, as a child I could never tell if in that one song (can't remember the name of it) if they were saying "Secret agent man" or "secret Asian man".

For ages, I used to think in Dirty Little Secret (The All American Rejects) the lyrics went:

I'll keep you, my dirty little secret
Don't tell any one-eyed Opie (AS IN THE KID FROM THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW)

It never once crossed my mind how ridiculous that was, but I sure believed it.
