Misheard Lyrics



OK, it's been done before but I've just been reminded by hearing "Oh What a Night" by the Four Seasons.

There's a line that goes "As I recall it ended much too soon".

No matter how much I try to convince myself that these are the proper words, I still hear "it emptied my tutu".

Anyone else got some completely erroneous lyric stuck in their minds??
Daughter asked me why Sting sang "It's been a year since I broke my nose" whilst listening to "Message In A Bottle".
Shania Twain "Man I feel like a woman" .... "cum in my hair".


The old classic - I can see Clare now that Lorraine has gone!
For some reason I always mishear The Squeeze - Pulling Mussels from a shell, as Pulling muscles for Michelle!

The phenomenum is of mis-hearing lyrics has a name - the are all called Lady Mondygreens, after the words of a classic poem in which the words 'they laid him on the green' occur.

Isla bonita. Eyes like pesatos, eyes like potatoes.

She also dreams of somewhere, sounds like lumbago.

Mrs SA has an il divo cd, (its hers honest!), where they sing about messy farts, why I do not know, but they do.

Never monkey with another monkeys monkey
Tom Petty's Free Fallin' has the line 'I wanna write her name in the sky', which I always hear as 'I wanna write her name in the snow'.

His version is slightly more romantic, I must confess.
When my mate's son was a nipper he thought Whitney Houston sang "shaving off my muff for you"

Probably because my mate told him that's what it was.
Then there is that old Christmas carol which goes something like " While shepherds washed their cocks at night all seated on the ground ...."
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Bad Moon Rising= There's a bathroom on the right
I'd always heard it as 'I see a baboon rising'. Strangely, that made perfect sense to me - which probably teaches you everything you need to know about the world I inhabit.
'Summer Breeze makes me feel fine blowing through the chasm in my mind'
Sung by Mrs Blackfrost, when said song came on radio during car journey. Slow shake of head from myself ruminating on how that moment of clarity from the long haired CO was the most accurate utterance she had made in the 15 years that we have been together.
