I knew someone who thought Jim Croce was singing, "Fat Fat Leroy Brown"

Another person thought the Bee Gees were singing, "Bald headed woman - bald headed woman to me". (More than a woman)

Re: funny missheard lyrics"

A friend of mine used to think the line "Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears" of Aerosmith's 'Dream On' was "Sing for the laughter, sing volunteer"

He still gets made fun of for that, mainly because he's normally the kind of guy that always dishes it out..

Also, my brother used to think that Filter's 'Hey man , nice shot' was 'Hey man, nice shirt' seriously He also used to think 'Rock the Casbah' was 'f**k the Gasbar'

All Along The Watchtower

Actual lyrics...
Businessmen, they drink my wine,
plowmen dig my earth

Re: funny missheard lyrics"

Of course that's "Bad Moon Rising".

I have tons of misheard lyrics from across the years. Like this from The Steve Miller Band's "The Joker"

"You're the cutist thing that I ever did see
I really love your features, wanna shake your tree."
(The actual word, of course, was peaches)

And this one from the Rascals' "Groovin'"

"Life will be ecstacy,
You and me and Lesley groovin'..."
(The actual word was endlessly)

Those are two of my favorites from my own personal mis-hearings. I'll post more as they come to mind.

I knew a guy in high school who swore Neil Diamond's "Forever in Blue Jeans" was "Reverend Blue Jay."

I was going to say Blinded By The Light too. I've heard Zep's Stairway go "and she's shopping at the 7-11" before.

Purple Haze---"Excuse me while I kiss this guy or kiss the sky??????"

I still couldnt figure out the lyrics of "Get off of my cloud" by the Stones.
