When I grow up, I wanna be famous, I wanna be a star, I wanna be in movies.
When I grow up, I wanna see the world, drive nice cars, I wanna have boobies.

(When I Grow Up by The Pussycat Dolls)

It's really groupies and not boobies, but that's what I heard.

Manfred Mann: Blinded by the light: I heard "by the light" as Friday night.

Rolling Stones: Gimme Shelter: the lyrics "It's just a shout away" I heard as "It's just a shadow way".

I'm sure there's more that I forgot.

The only one I can think of is the old turtles theme song. Apparently, from what I've read, Raphael is cool, but crude.

To this day I still hear rude.

I know that's probably been said a thousand times, but I'm just saying.

Share the Land by The Guess Who.

Every time they sing "Shake your Hand" and "Share the Land", I'm mishearing as "Shave your Head".

Another song I still mishear the lyrics too is Get Your Shine On by Florida Georgia Line.

Every time the sing "shine on", I'm mishearing the lyrics as "sat on" or "sad on".

For "We Built This City", instead of "While Cody plays la-bamba"... I always heard "While Cody faced the vampire!"... and even after knowing better, I still sing those lyrics anyway - cuz facing a vampire is way cooler than just playing la-bamba. :P

instead of: „I’ve got the power“ some people hear: „Agathe Bauer“

There was even a woman, who requested the "agathe Bauer song" on radio :lol:

In the song "Hot wings" from the Movie Rio is one part I mishear everytime.

I think I found out about 10 years ago, whenever a particular song from Paul McCartney's Wings comes on, I always thought the main lyric was Man On the Run, not Band On the Run. Heh, I never knew.

Laura Branigan's Self Control, in the beginning, when she goes "Oh the night, is my world, city lights, painted girl" I had in the past thought it was painted gold.:ohwell:

Considering the scene that accompanies that line (a coffee machine that is huge and malfunctions spectacularly), it is an understandable mistake.

Ferrets can be silly creatures IRL. And a wind-blown ferret would really be something to see.

Whenever anyone gets a chance, listen to a song called Pumped Up Kicks on YouTube. I used to think I was hearing the singers singing something about pornstar kisses. I laughed whenever that song came on the radio.

When I was a kid I thought the lyrics In the opening of the original transformers cartoon were "Transformers, Robot's in the skys." ...Possibly because all the deceptions were flying around when they sang that line.

When i was a year or so older and figured out the real lyrics, I was like "Robots in Disguise?! That makes way more sense!"

Nobody's really sure what they're saying on the Kidz Bop version of Meghan Trainor's "All About the Bass" (which is kinda inapropes for kids anyway:roll:)

I didn't know the name of the song was "Wrecking Ball" and later on when I was singing it I was like "I came in like a raiiiinboowww." But now that I know it's wrecking ball, everything makes sense and Miley Cyrus is an awful person.

Chasing Waterfalls...I heard 'Don't go, Jason waterfalls' so I figured they were singing about a lover named Jason Waterfalls almost my whole life. *shrugs* then my little sister made fun of me.
