My cousin from Montreal thought O Canada said "We stand on God for thee", instead of "on guard". :heart:

When I was in grade school and had to recite the Pledge of Allegiance I would say "one nation, invisible, with liberty, and justice for all...".

One day I scratched my head and wondered it that meant that you could drive from Mexico to Canada with out knowing you had gone through a third country in between because ...we are a "nation invisible"????

Jimi Hendrix ‘Purple Haze’: ‘Excuse me while I kiss this guy’ When it’s actually ‘the sky’, but this was the sixties so who knows :P

From Synchronicity II:

In the song 'Jump' by Van Halen, I thought David Lee Roth was singing "Maxwell jump" instead of "Might as well jump."

The 1981 REO Speedwagon song, 'In Your Letter' lyrics "in your letter" was misheard as "Indiana boogie."

Two examples of misheard lyrics - misheard lyrics can be known as 'mondegreens.'

* Elvis Presley's 'Return to Sender' - lyrics "return to sender" was misheard as "return December."

* Manfred Mann's 1970's song, 'Blinded by the Light' - lyrics "blinded by the light" was misheard as "blind date by the night." (I found-out about the misheard lyrics long after Manfred Mann's 'Blinded by the Light' was released. Regardless, it continues to remain an awesome song!)

Sometimes I intentionally sing the wrong lyrics to songs:

“I can see clearly now that I have my glasses on.
I can see all the popsicles in my way.”

"my great, my great, my greaaat...DANE!! !!" I sing that along with Paul McCartney on the store muzak.

And I join Madonna in singing about how "I threw out my lumbago...it was long ago, but it seems like yesterday". :)

Credence Clearwater Revival - “Down on the Corner”
Actual lyrics - “Bring a nickel, tap your feet”

Misheard lyrics - “Bring a n****r, tap your feet”
For years and years I wondered why this was allowed on the radio.

Brotherhood of Man - "United We Stand"



Actual Lyrics
"And if our backs should ever be against the wall"

Misheard lyrics
"And if our backs should ever be against the war"

What can I say it was 1970 at the height of the anti-Vietnam War protests

In “ Don’t Stop Believing” I always heard “ in a smoking room” instead of “ a smoky room.”
