There was a Bob Marley song that had the line "We will cook cornmeal porridge" which I read as "We will cook Maury Povich"...

Re: Fun Music Thread: Lyrics you got wrong!!

Being deaf in one ear has two major impacts on my life. #1, since I don't have stereo hearing, I don't know which direction sounds come from. And #2, reading lips sometimes helps me pick up dialog. So naturally, I often mishear song lyrics.

Two more examples of this are Aerosmith's Do the Lucky Lady instead of Dude Looks Like a Lady, and AC/DC's Dirty Deeds and the Thunder Chief instead of Dirty Deeds, and they're done dirt cheap.

An old one:

Beck -- Loser

What I thought it was: So open the door

The real lyric: Soy un perdedor

Not even close.

Here's one. One of my favourite singer-songwriters is from Canada's East Coast. He has a song called Eleven Roses.

The line is "I want to pluck the thorns."

But everytime I hear it, due to his thick Acadian accent, it comes out sounding like "I want to fuck the thorns." Ouch!

This whole discussion reminded me of the scene in Jumpin' Jack Flash where Whoopi Goldberg's character tries to figure out the lyrics to the titular song.
That jogged my memory -- when I first heard that song, it sounded like "I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash and I just passed gas."

Every time I hear Pink Floyd's "Money."

The real line: "Money. so they say ... is the root of all evil today."

What I hear: "Money. so they say.. isn't Rudolph all evil today?"
