Misheard Lyrics....

#1
In the Culture Club song 'Time (Clock of The Heart)', Boy George sings:

"Time is like a clock in my heart"

To me, it always sounded like:

"Time - I've got a cock in my arse"

Which somehow seemed far more appropriate........

I'm sure that's what he meant :oops:

Ummm...

It took me years to discern that the first line of Bryan Adams song 'Summer of '69', was NOT:

"I had my first real sex dream...."
 
#4
Took me years to discern that Michael Jackson's "smooth criminal" was not a prophetic look into Dubya's political future.

"an englishman in new york" - real lyrics "i'm an alien, i'm a legal alien". as a young teenager in the 80s, i thought it was "i'm an eddie, i'm an eagle eddie" (as in "eddie the eagle edwards")

That's the lyrics in one of Jacko's songs isn't it?

Then just imagine the problems I had with Desmond Dekker and 'The Isrealites'. Had to print off a copy of thee lyrics before I stopped singing gibberish.

One of the classics is Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze which has the line "scuse me while I kiss the sky", but often misheard as "scuse me while I kiss this guy".

You mean "Pa-aw, my ears are alight..." in the the same self-immolating manner as Bananarama's "I'm your penis, I'm on fire..." (ouch!).

The Verves "The Drugs Don't Work"

For weeks I was singing along with the "The Trucks Don't Work" when one day in the office it was on the radio and I shouted back: "Well get a mechanic in and get the fcuking trucks fixed then!"

Of course the office was full and I had the song explained to me. And of course everyone sang me "The Trucks Don't Work" later on in the bar :oops:

And Bowies "Diamond Dogs"

I had the line "As they pulled you out of the oxygen tent you ask for the latest party" down as "As they pulled you out of the oxygen tent you asked for the ladies toilet"

But nobody knows that.

Fcuk :oops:

I thought UB40's 'Ivory Madonna' was 'I've a ring doughnut'
