That is a great song, from a great album. Thank you for bringing it up!

One ad I saw rendered the Clash's song "Rock The Casbah," as "Stop the cat box!"

I interpreted a lyric in the Huey Lewis and The News song "Heart of Rock and Roll," as "the album may be barely breathing." The true lyric is, "the old boy may be barely breathing." By that time, vinyl records were being phased out, so I thought it was logical.

The most common I heard were the classic CCR, Manfred Mann and Jimi Hendrix mondegreens.

In the Police's song "King of Pain," I misheard "black hat" as "black cat."

I used to think the chorus line of Rage Against the Machine's "Renegades of Funk" was "when a redneck needs to f**k". Until I found out what the name of the song was, that is.

The Carpenters "All You Get From Love is a Love Song (Dirty Old Shame)" --

I heard "Like sailing on a sailing ship to Norway"

Real lyrics: "Like sailing on a sailing ship to nowhere."

I heard: "The best love songs are written with a broken arm"

Real lyrics: "The best love songs are written with a broken heart."

Another one from Rock the Casbah:

I misheard the word "minarets" as "Memorex."

I also heard "Olympus" as "lepress" in Toto's song Africa.

A strange one, probably influenced by a special interest:

I heard the lyric, "We are, we are, we are but your children," as "We are, we are, we are but Jah's children." I listened to reggae a lot at that time, but that song wasn't reggae at all. Weird!

I think a lot of my misheard lyrics are based on personal special interests.

In the Calvin Harris song, Feels; instead of hearing the word Feels, me & my girlfriend both hear Fish :arrow:

There's a song that we sang at my church, and one of the lines is "All the ends of the Earth have seen the power of God."
Well, I was obsessed with insects as a kid, and I heard "All the ants of the Earth." It made sense to me - I thought it was their way of saying every creature on Earth, even the ants.

Good Charlotte - Dance Floor Anthem

When I first heard it when I came out, I heard it as "I don't wanna be alone. I don't wanna be alone".
