    Hi all. I was just killin some time on the web, and thought this might be a funny topic, since anyone that has listened to music before, I'm sure, can relate.

    Billy Joel-"You May be Right"

    Actual lyrics: "You may be right, I may be crazy"
    What I hear: "You make the rice, I'll make the gravy"

    Anyway, feel free to post your own. Look forward to hearing from everyone.

    Actual lyrics:"...I speak of the pompatus of love."



    Green Day - Deadbeat Holiday

    Actual lyrics:
    Christmas lights in the middle of August,
    grudges come back to haunt us.

    LMAO @ you "actually" hearing that line correctly. I loved that song for years before I actually found out what he was saying (I'm only 26, but I can appreciate classic rock, since I find alot of the bands from my generation, lacking in certain areas of thier chosen craft. Haha @ Christ comes back to haunt us.

    "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana (begining of chorus)

    Actual Lyrics: ???
    What I hear: Turn the lights out, at the steakhouse

    "Excuse me while I kiss this guy" LOL, and I don't just mean LOL the way we type it, I'm actually almost on the floor in tears. I think I just scared my mom.

    :DHey C & C!
    I'm glad I can amuse you! Here's another one:
    From Keith Richards' album, Talk is Cheap. The song is called, "I Coulda Stood You Up and I Didn't".
    Lyrics: Well hung, friend of mine
    He's size 8 -I'm size 9
    So shucks my dear
    I'm gonna get a lick from you

    Heard: Well hung, friend of mine
    He's size 8 -I'm size 9
    So sucks my di*k
    I'm gonna get a lick from you [B)][:x)]

    My BF and I finally had to look on alllyrics.com to find out the real deal.

    Isn't Kurt Cobain just the best thing ever?(Drain You=my 2nd favorite Nirvana song next to Breed). His talent never ceases to amaze me, even after all these years.

    Shiny Toy Guns "You are the One"

    Actual Lyrics: "I try, to digest my pride"
    Heard: "I try, to digest my bride"

    Not the biggest Britney Spears fan (or really at all) but....

    Britney Spears "Toxic" (chorus)

    Actual: "With the taste of your lips, I'm on a ride. You're toxic, I'm slippen under

    Heard: "With the taste of your lips, slide on a rake. Your toxic c#nt slippen under

    (if you close your eyes and listen, you can hear it, plus I'm almost positive that her cabbage patch REALLY is toxic)

    Very funny thread.

    #9 Dream, John Lennon.

    What I heard:
    Ah, buy a cow, a p*ssy, p*ssy
    Ah, buy a cow, a p*ssy, p*ssy
    Ah, buy a cow, a p*ssy, p*ussy

    Real lyrics:
    Ah! b?wakawa pousse, pousse,
    Ah! b?wakawa pousse, pousse,
    Ah! b?wakawa pousse, pousse.

    Whatever that means.

    It's not due to lack of air time though.

    It's reassuring to know I'm not the only one who heard it like that. [8D]

    Here's one from the same decade:
    Creedance Clearwater Revival, Bad Moon Risin'
    Lyric: Don't go round tonight
    Well it's bound to take your life
    There's a bad moon on the rise.
    Heard: Don't go round the knife
    Well it's bound to take your life
    There's a bathroom on the right

    This was a commonly mis-heard lyric. A number of my adolescent friends would sing the wrong lyrics, fully confident they were right.

    Now, "Christ has come back to haunt us." and "Turn the lights out, at the steakhouse" both had me belly laughing. Too funny!

    I know it's not 'pc' and all, but that is just too damn funny! Now I'm wondering if they laugh this hard watching our stuff?

    In their defense, they weren't trying</u> to sing in English.
