Re: funny missheard lyrics"

When I was little, I always thought it was "this is the dawning of the angels' aquarium" (Age of Aquarius).

And "hold me closer, Tony Danza" (Elton John, "Tiny Dancer").

Another one that comes to mind is "you can fuck me, I don't care", misinterpreted from "you can pump me, I don't care" (from The Cars' "You're all I've Got Tonight".

Sounds like you got their general intention anyway.

...speaking of the Cars' tune...my wife at first thought they were singing 'You're On My Gut Tonight'...I suppose that might conjure some interesting images in some people's minds...

Our band was going to do a cover of Honky Tonk Women by the Stones and our drummer thought the song was called Honky Tonk Willy. So we did a cover of Honky Tonk Willy. You can check it out here: https://fhs.dmusic.com/

Pretty much. I never really realized how beautifully raw and filthy their music was until I was older. They're the type of band that just gets better with age.

The Hollies "Long Cool Woman in a Bad Dress"

both misheard by me...when I was younger, mind you.

Re: funny missheard lyrics"

Just recently my sweetie and I were in the car, and Billy Idol's "Eyes Without A Face" came on.

Kevin (my sweetie) thought the lyrics were "How's about a fish?"

Misheard Lyrics:
'Cause we're livin' in a world of foam
Breaking astern
Windy ocean lettuce pee.
Original Lyrics:
'Cause we're livin' in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be.

Aero smith janies got a gun "
Misheard Lyrics:
Jamie's out of gum.
Original Lyrics:
Janie's got a gun.
