driving home the other night the song i need a dollar came on, hubby thought he was singing i need a daughter


I thought the guy was singing I need to holla and I said to my DH this song makes no sense. My DH had tears running down his face trying to tell me the reason it made no sense was I was singing it wrong.

ETA I always thought dressed for sucess was get dressed for safe sex and I would think yer well that will keep it safe.

Limp Bizkit, I did it all for the Nookie. I thought he was singing "I did it all for the Noogie"
I wondered for a very long time why you would sing about grabbing someone in a head lock and rubbing their hair. What's more why would you go to so much trouble to do it??

I also thought that the first line of Bryan Adam's Summer of 69 was "I had my first real sex dream." I always thought the first verse of that song was very crass for Bryan Adams. It made so much more sense when I discovered he was singing about his Six String!!

One of my best friends used to sing

"Old soda water"  in stead of "Smoke on the water".

I don't know why but I thought the lyrics to Fast Car by Tracy Chapman was

"You've got a flattened scar..."

And when Alanis Morrisette (sp?) was singing about leaving the mess you made. I took it to mean that he left her house a mess and was asking for him to come and clean it up.

My friend used to sing 'I wish I was a prawn cracker' until I corrected her 'I wish I was a punk rocker' (after laughing my head off for ages first) she then realised that it made much more sense than prawn cracker, lol.

There are some classics in here! Great thread!!


"Where's your head at?" ... In the bit after that I'd sing "On my shoulders"

"Shake shake, shake shake a shake it" I sing as "Shake shake, shake shake and bake it" (I think I heard it wrong once, and just rolled with it laughing2.gif)

I know I had stuff ups with "Down on the Corner" by Creedence, but I can't remember what they were.

Oh, and "We built this city on rock and roll" HAS to be sung as "We built this city on sausage rolls"

"Ain't nothing like the kisses from a jaded Chinese princess" ... Umm .. I thought (until just now when I had to confirm what the actual lyrics are) .. it was "Ain't nothing like the kisses from a cheating Chinese mistress" .. Oops.

"So make the best of this test and don't ask why" Again, until just now .. I sung it as "So make the best now of this question known as why"

My DH is famous for singing the words of one song the tune of another!

And he always gets the words of songs wrong, e.g.:

Noah's ark, Noah's ark > How bizarre, how bizzare
O come holy faithful > O come all ye faithful

And -

If you wanna be my lover,
you've gotta get with my friends
Taking is for ever, that'll be okay  biggrin.gif

The other day, he was trying to figure out the into song of the NRL footy show (Black Eyed Peas - "I gotta feeling, that tonight's gonna be a good night"), and he kept saying that it had the word "Tonight" in it, but he was singing it to the tune of "Tonight... I celebrate my love for you"!

eskimo joe's black fingernails red wine, the part where he sings, " all of them stand and point their fingers..." really sounds like " i dont understand the point of fingers"...lol, at least to me it did. ddoh.gif

also, there's an oldish song ( im gonna sound totally ignorant but i dont know who sings it or what its called,) but it starts out "sittin' down thinkin of you..." and then the chorus starts out with " let me feel like the one, let me feel like the one.....the one..." one of my friends used to sing "let me feel like a worm, let me feel like a worm.....a worm..."
um, and that james blunt ref earlier i dont think was far off, i think he was talking about his semi-detached house by the sea.

My Nana has always sung "Ohhhh werewolf, I would do anything just to be like him"

Instead of Errol- I believe the song is about Errol Flynn. But no to my nana it's about werewolves!  biggrin.gif


I prefer your Nanna's version.

Not so much misheard as mutilated, an old friend once sang "call me a quenn in the fountain", instead of call me king of the mountain" (Midnight Oil)"

We were in Kings Cross, and there was a drag queen in the fountain so now they are the words I hear whenever that song comes up.

This thread is hilarious!!

A friend of mine used to work in country radio station years ago and loves telling the story of a listener who rang and requested that Rod Stewart song "The first Cousin of Jesus".


Help me out here, what song is it?

One of James Blunt's songs sounds like he says "standing with a semi beside the sea"  I laugh every time and I still don't know what the right lyrics are!


So I think it is "Those three wise men they've got a semi by the sea" (my sister was trying to work out what a truck had to do with anything. BUT when double checking the lyric I came across "Those three Wise Men,
They've got us sitting by the sea."

YES! Especially since the next line is about "landing in Hong Kong". Not many trains from Sydney to Hong Kong,

And best of all, the radio caller who confessed that he misheard the first line of Summer of 69 as "I got my first real sex dream" - now think of how the rest of the first verse goes...

DD1 came up with a cracker the other day.

She asked for the 'Gruffalo' song. I told her I wasn't sure what she meant and she sang it to the tune of...
"You've got the love, you've got the love and YOOOOUUUUU've got the love!" (but "The Gruffalo, the gruffalo and THHEEEE gruffalo" (Florence and the Machine).

It is also my ringtone so now it is known as the Gruffalo song.


What on earth is a Gruffalo??

A friend used to sing "Eye of the tiger, he's the king of the crop" instead of "Eye of the tiger, he's the king of the fight"


It's actually "It's the eye of the tiger, it's the THRILL of the fight"

You're thinking of "Dakota" by Stereophonics.

I used to always swear Bryan Adams song Symmer of 69 -

"I got my first real sex dream"

It should be "I  got my first real six string!"
