    In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida- "Eat A Gob Of Velveeta"

    Help Me Rhonda- "Since you put me down there's been owls poopin' in my bed"

    And the one that never fails to make me giggle:

    "The Hustle" by Van McCoy- "Tuna hot dog!!"

    I pledge a lesson to the frog of the United States of America, and to the wee puppet, for witches' hands, one Asian, under God, in the vestibule, with little tea and just rice for all.

    That's not mine, it's from the book In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson, but man it stuck with me for years.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I've had this argument a million times with people. I don't care what Manfred Mann put on the written lyrics in their liner notes.

    Just listen to the guy. He clearly says "******."

    As a kid, I always misheard Don Henley's "Boys of Summer."

    actual: "I can see you... Your brown skin shining in the sun."

    to my ears: "I can see you... Your breasts get shiny in the sun."
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    I think I like your version better but I'd have to see the video to be sure.

    I originally thought it said "I'll never be your pizza burning".

    I also thought Van Halen's "Panama" was "Padded Bra".

    My college freinds had a pop band and one of the songs they did was Robert Palmer's "Simply Irresistible". Too poor to buy the sheet music, they relied upon tapes to learn the music and lyrics.

    Somehow they came up with "She's a glazed jelly donut" as part of the song.

    Prince's "Let's Go Crazy": "Look for the perp or the madman til they throw us in the truck"

    The actual line makes less sense: "Look for the purple banana til they throw us in the truck."

    Depending on where you sit, Salt N Pepa's "Push It" sounds like either "Ah, this is bulls***" or "Ah, this (kittycat)".

    This is one I heard from someone else for Jimmy Buffett's "Come Monday"

    "I've spent 4 lonely days with a brown Elly Hayes..."

    instead of "I've spent 4 lonely days in a brown LA haze..."

    Now I crack up everytime I hear that song.
