I remember seeing a little pocket book out a few years ago that contained "misheard" song lyrics. iInever bothered to buy it (I wish I had), and now I can't find it.

So with that in mind, would any of you care to share some song lyrics that you misheard at some point and what the correct lyrics are? I'll start with what I can remember reading from that book.

"Taking care of business" by BTO misheard as "Baking carrot biscuits"

"Love stinks" by the J. Geils Band misheard as "Love steaks"

"Big ol' jet airliner" from "Jet Airliner" by the Steve Miller band misheard as "Ego Jan and the rhino" or "Bingo Jed and Lionel"


That's all I can remember right off the top of my head. Can any of you add to the list?

One time, on our city's local radio station, a lady called in to ask about Kiss Me, the song by Sixpence None the Richer. She wanted to know about one line in the song. She was hearing, "fling me on my bra is hanging tight," but the correct lyrics are "swing me upon it's hanging tire." I don't know how she heard it, but when I listened to the song again, I heard it, too.

I can't think of any off hand that I've misheard (though I'm sure there are some) but my dad is terrible for mishearing songs. There was one song years ago that had a line that said, "from head to toe." He thought they were saying, "Throw me some foam." Also, that song, "Go on now go, walk out the door, don't turn around now, cuz I don't need you any more," my dad thought they were saying, "ooh, oh, oh, now domino."

My poor dad always hears things wrong. He can't spell either. And he's terribly color blind. He's not unintelligent, he went to college, just has something missing in his interpretation of things. Good thing he doesn't fly. Lord only knows what he'd hear ATC telling him!

From the song Lucille - the correct lyrics are:

You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille
Four hungry children and a crop in the field.

What I thought I heard:

You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille
Four hundred children and a crop in the field.

I remember thinking "Damn! Lucille is fertile!"

I remember when I was very young, there was this certain Enya song which they used to play in a certain grocery store. Instead of "Sail Away," I thought she was singing about "Safeway"

There was one Aretha Franklin song "Until You Come Back to Me" and there was a line "love ya baby" which always sounded to me like "f*ckin' baby." The only reason I know it's "love ya baby" is because I read the lyrics once out of curiosity--I'm not so sure that's what she really said!
