"Feelin'... like a ham n mustard shake"... and other misheard lyrics.
The real lyrics are:
...you might as well face it, you're addicted to love.

But they were misheard as:
...you might as well face it, you're a dickhead in love.
-----------------------------------------------------------
This one is the best:

The real lyrics are:
My Angel is a Centerfold

But they were misheard as:
My Anus is the center hole

------------------------------------------------------------

Got any others?

1. Dance the Night Away, Van Halen
Van Halen: Can you see her? So fine and pretty movin' with a style and ease.


My sister's version: Can you see her? Something bout the pretty titties with the stallion ears.

3. Dancing Queen - Abba
Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the right music, getting in the swing
You come in to look for a king



Just heard it a few times this month, and misheard the last sentence as
"here comes the loofah king"

My thought was "they predicted Bill O'Reilly??!?"

5. That's where I am poking around. I was listening to STP International
Love Song (ham n mustard shake) and Googled misheard lyrics.

Fun fun funny stuff. And, I am sure there are tons of real life versions far better.

Sundown, you better take care
If I find you've been creeping round my back stairs

Sundown you better take care
If I find you've been drinking my Labatt's ale

19. Muzak plays something called "Jump 'n' Jivin"
It's this thing that's supposed to be a hot-jazz number...but when the guy sings "jumpin' jivin'" it sounds exactly like he's really singing "drunk drivin'." What a strange thing to write a song about!

30. "The singing seam, the talking teas, A silent 'E' in a noisy way..."
Edited on Sun Jul-09-06 02:21 PM by sakabatou
"The Singing Sea"

Original Lyrics:
The singing sea
The talking trees
A silent in a noisy way.
***
"Call Me Call Me"

Misheard Lyrics:
Confusion creeps inside me, raining down.

Original Lyrics:
Confusion creeps inside me, raining doubt.

Misheard Lyrics:
I close my eyes and I keep seeing things
Rainbow wafer crawls
Suddenly could dream

Original Lyrics:
I close my eyes and I keep seeing things
Rainbow waterfalls
Sunny liquid dreams
***
"Gravity"

Misheard Lyrics:
Other memories, a hole
Sill ballad
O' half the dears
I neuter them

Original Lyrics:
Are the memories I hold
still valid?
Or have the tears deluded them?
