"Scuse me while I kiss this guy!", from "Purple Haze" by Jimmy Hendrix

Actually, it's "Scuse me while I kiss the sky!", referring to the act of taking a drag off a "Merry Joanna" cigarette.

"From the cross to the grave, my dead toupée" - from "Lord Lift Your Name on High" by Donnie Mcclurkin.

Actually, it's "From the cross to the grave, my debt to pay".

I posted this in another thread but I'll put it here too

In the pet shop boys 'East end girls' song I thought they said denim world instead of dead end world

Folks THINK this is mondegreen, but I swear it's right.

In the song "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" I hear Bob Dylan sing "Genghis Khan, and his brother Don, could not keep on keeping on".

Most folks my age remember "Genghis Khan" but cant believe that the next words could POSSIBLY be "his brother Don", but they can never recall what the right words are.

Listened to it just now. Still sounds like "his brother Don" to me!

I'm Mobile by Avril Lavigne sounds like she's saying I'm a Robot.

Speaking of CCR I wondered for years why they allowed "Down in the Corner" to be played on the radio because I misheard "bring a nickel, tap your feet" as "bring a n****r, tap your feet".

Springsteen's "Blinded By The Light" (also covered by Manfred Mann). Most people heard "wrapped up like a douche another runner in the night". Actual lyric is "revved up like a deuce". :wink:

"Lucille" by Kenny Rogers--people commonly misunderstand "with four hungry children and a crop in the field" as "with four hundred children and a crop in the field".

"Blank Space" by Taylor Swift--sounds like it's saying "Starbucks lovers" when it's really saying "got a long list of ex-lovers".

For many years, I heard Bette Midler sing "I say love, it is a flower, and you will sow the seed" in her rendition of The Rose.

The actual lyric is "and you, it's only seed".

Rush - Fly by Night.... It sounds like Geddy Lee is singing "Shit-fits are coming and I just can't pretend."

"It's Just A Little Crush" by Jennifer Paige:

Misheard Lyrics:
It's just, a little crush
Not black on pink, every time we touch.

Original Lyrics:
It's just, a little crush
Not like I faint, every time we touch.

Misheard Lyrics:
Smells like coffee, every time we touch

Original Lyrics:
It's not like I faint, every time we touch
