Misheard lyrics?

Have you ever mistakenly sang the wrong lyrics to a song? I always sing "rock the cashbar" even though I KNOW it's "rock the casbah" (the Clash).

  • For years I swear I thought the opening line of "Staying Alive" by the Bee Gees was this line:

    "You can't tell by the way I use my voice if I'm a woman or a man, but that's my choice"

    His voice is so high there, it actually is kinda logical, if non-sensical!

  • There's one song that I still don't know the words too, it sounds like "Wrapped up in a douche." Blinded by the light.

  • My aunt thought the Aerosmith song "Dude looks like a lady" was "Do the fucking lady". LOL!

  • It took me forever to convince my husband that the song "Birthday Sex" WAS infact "Sex" and not "Texts" LOL. It also sounds like Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" is really saying "Fa fa f*ck her face" although I'm pretty sure that's a bit intentional.

  • I used to think Time Bomb by Rancid went "black coat white shoes black cadillac, the poison time bomb" Or System of a Down Chop Suey "falling deerheads I condemn my spirit". I thought that made no sense.

  • Shanna, its "revved up like a deuce" sounds like douche to me too! That's the way I sing it. LOL!

  • Ooooohhhh, revved up like a deuce does make so much more sense. But I like my version better. :)
