    Default Misheard Lyrics

    Or Mondegreens, or whatever you want to call them.
    Basically, post here lyrics in songs you thought were something else.

    Me? Okay, let's see:



    I am such a champion at this.
    Crack some heads for me, darlings. Thank you, and good night.

    "Poor Some Sugar On Me" - Def Leppard

    I keep understanding "Livin' like a lover with a red hot thong" as "Livin' like a lover with a red iPhone".

    That's one of the rare occasions where I'll understand lyrics as something else in English. Most of the time they sound like distorted French to me.

    I misheard "I figured you were acting out your part" as "Pikachu erected out your butt". No lie. (The song is called "All Downhill from here" by New Found Glory.

    That's the main one really.

    One that I find awkwardly hilarious - apparently 'You dropped a bomb on me' = 'You tried to climb on me'. (The song is 'You Dropped a Bomb on Me' by the Gap Band.)

    I used to listen (and sing) "Show me your pickup truck truck ..." Instead of the "Show me your peacock peacock peacock ..." part of Peacock by Kate Perry

    I thought it was "Happy stupid... and contagious" but that song's one of their least intelligible anyways.

    Oh I thought of one... When I was little and we were on road trips, we used to listen to tons of cassettes (remember those?) in the car. I thought in the chorus of "Ticket to Ride" by the Beatles that the line was "She's got a baby giraffe and she don't care." I only remember this because I remember telling my mom, 'If I had a baby giraffe, I would care', and she had to pull over she was laughing so hard.

    "Beautiful Day" - U2

    I always mishear "It's a beautiful day, the sky falls and you feel like" as "It's a beautiful day, the sky's full of felines".

    What I heard was, "Sunkist skin so hot, I'll melt your pretzel dog."
    What it really was: "Sunkist skin so hot, I'll melt your popsicle."

    What I heard: "I wanna be on the cover of Ford's magazine. Smiling next to the Joker and the Queen."
    What it really was: "I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine. Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen."

    I'm clearly not the most observant person

    Some days it's a good day to die. Other times it's just a good day to have breakfast.

    Working My Way Back To You- Four Seasons

    "I'll be working my way back to you, babe.
    With a bird in love inside.
    I'll be working my way back to you, babe
    And a happy nest that dies."

    When it's really "burning love" and "happiness". For many years I misheard the lyrics because they fit together so well!

    Also, Ass Up by Baracuda sounds like "put giraffes in the air" instead "put your ass in the air."

    Three new Anthrax ones.

    "It's a goddamn sin." = "It's so goddamn sad." (The Devil You Know) That is seriously what it sounds like!
    "Tickin' in my head." = "Takin' it back." (Got the Time) I have no excuse for this one.

    And for some reason I've always heard the chorus of Blood as unintelligible gibberish, even when I have the lyrics sitting in front of me.
    Crack some heads for me, darlings. Thank you, and good night.

    "Half-Christ flat screen, yeah, I work for Sony."

    My interpretation of Childish Gambino's "You Know Me." In reality, it is:

    "Half-price flat screen, yeah, I work for Sony."

    I wasn't that off. I mean, flat screens could be half-Christ, I guess.
