    "Scuze me while I kiss this guy" vs. "Scuze me while I kiss the sky". I'm sure we've all done it--misheard lyrics to songs. I knew a guy who misheard the Johnny Rivers "Poor Side of Town" song as "Four Sided Cow".
    What lyrics have you misheard?

    Some info on the phenomenon: Excuse Me While I Kiss This Guy

    Foreigners are really funny...
    Those who can't understand English...

    My neighbor who is very fond of Diana Spencer...
    Once he started singing let it be by Beatles...
    But he thought the lyrics were...:musicnotes: Lady D., Lady D., Lady D., Lady D. (some gibberish) Lady D....

    I burst out laughing and told him that the lyrics were let it be.

    Or my aunt...she was listening to the radio...playing Stevie Wonder's most famous song.
    My aunt was so glad...started singing it...
    Agesco...tu sei...I love you.
    LOL

    There's been a commerical on TV recently for Virgin cruises, using "like a virgin" made famous by Madonna. It immediately brought to mind the very first time that I heard that song on the radio...the radio wasn't on too loud, there were other noises in the environment, and I wasn't initially paying much attention...so imagine my surprise to hear, on commercial radio, the following:

    "Like a virgin,
    F***** for the very first time..."

    Wait...WHAT?????:eek::confused:o_O:D:oops::rolleyes:

    There's the famous hymn about "Gladly, The Cross-Eyed Bear" for "Gladly, The Cross I'd Bear"

    One of my favorites is "Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly, a girl with colitis goes by" for "a girl with kaleidoscope eyes"

    Also "I know that I must do what's right, as sure as Kilimanjaro rises like a leopress above Estelle Getty" for "like Olympus above the Serengeti"

    The Grateful Dead do a song called Estimated Prophet, where "might and glory gonna be my name" has been heard as "Mike and Gloria" from All In The Family.

    It's not a lyric, but in the movie Return to Oz I always thought Dorothy in the hospital was saying,

    'Could I have some ice cream later?'

    When she actually said,

    'Did I hear someone scream earlier?'



    :D

    Boston's Peace of Mind I had misheard as Piece of Pie, and that made me crave for some Piece cheese pizza.

    Kenny Rogers' Lucille, "...with four hundred children and a crop in the field."
    I always thought that he was referring to using an outside toilet.

    “Then I saw her face, now I’m gonna leave her” I'm a believer

    A slightly more obscure one...

    The Cockney Rebel song Pyschomodo has the lyric...
    "..it's .a mild schizophrenia ..."

    For years I used to sing, "It's a mouse, it's a finger"
