    YOur Personal Misheard or Incorrect Lyric Favorites

    The one I can't ever stop singing is this from Sara McLachlan's Posession:

    Instead of => You speak to me in riddles and you speak to me in rhyme.

    I sing => You speak to me in riddles and you speak to LeAnn Rhimes.

    Do you have any lyrics you personally butcher?

    My sister has this book that's called:

    Excuse me, while I kiss this guy.

    It's about misheard lyrics. Pretty darn funny to read how wrong some people are about lyrics.

    There's a lot for me... then when I find out the right way, I'm

    There was something on VH-1 or MTV a few years back and a lot of some misheard lyrics can be attributed to accents. Like "Our Lips Are Sealed" by the Go-Gos - in Australia they heard it as "Alice the Seal".

    "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana I got pretty much all wrong!

    This isn't one of my own, but when I first met my wife I had a CCR cd and was listening to Bad Moon Rising and she confessed that as a 'kid' [we were 17 and 15 respectively at the time] she thought the lyrics we're

    "there's a bathroom on the right.''

    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    That old Journey song I thought weny "Now i come to to you..with broken arms".... instead of "open arms".
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Remember Quiet Riot's - Come on Feel the Noise?

    It sounded like to me "Come on to Illinois".

    Billy Idol - Eyes without a face.

    The sister of my college buddy thought it was "how's about a date?"

    I laughed beer out my nose that night.

    My own personal humiliation: "Rock the Cash Bar" - Rock the Casbah

    I hate to think of how many I don't even know about.

    Bobbi Brown's "Every Little Step I Take":

    My friend had an interesting way to sing it. Instead of "No matter what your friends try to tell ya..."

    He sang, "No matter if you're a french fry taker..."

    I'm not sure what that means, but we all lost it upon hearing it.
