The lyrics, sung in their edgy emotionless robotic style, were "Fahrven, fahrven, fahrven, un zee autobahn" meaning simply "driving, driving, driving, on the autobahn". But I heard it as "fun, fun, fun, on zee autobahn". I still like my version better.
8O Wait, what now? I didn't know that - I've always heard it as the better version.

Overheard on Karaoke Night at a local pub...

Wipin' the Vaseline
  Surely makes you lose your mind
Wipin' the Vaseline
  Everything all the time


That guy swore he had the lyrics right.

GAWD!! !!

"Wipin' the vaseline..."

What did he think the song was about?

Changing diapers?

I guess that could make you loose your mind.

Or maybe he projected some kind of kinky sex into it.

Back in the 80s the young boss of the store I worked at LOVED that then new song by the Clash called "Rock the Cash Bar".

The song "Begging You" by Madcon, I used to think they said "baby, baby blue", so when I was trying to find the song on the internet I kept typing in "baby blue" and got frustrated because I couldn't find the song I wanted. :lol:
My (Aspie) friend said that it sounded nothing like "baby blue" but I think it did, probably because so many songs frequently use the word "baby".

O Bob-Bob-Bob-Bob-Bobber-Ann
Bob-Bob-Bob-Bob-Bobber-Ann
Bobber-Ann
Take my hand
Bobber-Ann
You got me rockin' and a rollin'
Rockin' and a reelin'
Bobber-Ann
Bob-Bob-Bob-Bobber-Ann...


"Barbara Ann" by the Beach Boys

(A lot of pre-teen boys in my elementary school had a lot of fun discussing how "Ann" got the nickname "Bobber"...)

The lyrics to the 1975 Paul Simon song '50 Ways to Leave Your Lover' contained a misheard lyric:

EXCERPT of lyrics:

You just slip out the back, Jack.
Make a new plan, Stan.
You don't need to be coy, Roy----- [misheard as you don't need to be corduroy (LINK)]
Just get yourself free.

HMMMMMM.. Can avoiding corduroy be a 51st way to...leave your lover? :lol:

LINK: Corduroy is type of textile. I remember corduroy trousers.

As a kid I devoured animated movies and was frequently hearing the lyrics wrong. For example, "we two run around all day!" ("free to run around all day", from Lion King)
