Pink's song Try has the lyric "Where there is desire there's gonna be a flame." I thought it was "Where there is a spark there's gonna be a flame." I actually like my version better, because it goes with the fire metaphor in the rest of the chorus.

Immediate Music With Great Power's misheard lyrics. I don't know which language they are actually in, likely Latin.

I thought it was "Treat me like a stranger. I feel so low."

The Chris de Burgh song Crusader has the chorus line, "Jerusalem is lost".

My dad thought it was , "Gerald's lamb is lost".

I'm surprised the classic misheard lyric of Bryan Adams "Summer of -69" hasn't made it here yet. The one where everyone mishears "six-string" as "sex dream".

Song: "Bad Romance" - Lady Gaga

Actual Lyrics: "Want you in my rear window, baby you're sick"

Misheard Lyrics: "Want you tomorrow when your baby is sick"

This single misheard lyric caused me to misinterpret the entire song's meaning. I thought it was about a Faustian contract between the singer and a desperate parent who must engage in a forbidden supernatural romance in exchange for their child's life. :o

A friend of mine always used to think a line of the chorus was

"Mosquitos and Potatoes"
in Smells Like Teen Spirit.

With the lights out, it's less dangerous <--- Maybe
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious <--- or this one maybe?
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido --- (But look, here it *DOES* have a mosquito!)
Yeah, hey

Admittedly I thought it was "Don't want you to wallow when your baby is sick"

I assumed that it was about a parent who felt sorry for themselves / overwhelmed, but she didn't want to know about their wallowing. That she just wanted to keep hooking up but didn't wanna be around to help raise the child. To solely have a good time and a bad romance.

The real lyrics are so ...opaque...that any mondegreen would make it make MORE sense, and not less sense.

Mosquito and potato? No worse "a mosquito, my libido".
