WHAT did he say?

As promised, here's a thread for mistakes. Specifically, lyrics where you originally thought something different from the actual lyrics. And preferably humorous, though we'll accept profound, ironic, and just plain weird.

A few from the Rickter Scale thread:

"Excuse me, while I kiss this guy" - Jimi Hendrix, Purple Haze
"There's a bathroom on the right" - CCR, Bad Moon Rising
"Count the head lice on the highway" - Elton John, Tiny Dancer

my little sister honestly thought the chorus of the Clash song "Rock The Casbah" was "F&*# the tadpole"

post away!

Kate Bush....Hmmmm!

I always thought "Wuthering heights" started off:

'I don't know why we've been divorced, we fall and roll in Brie'.

Time to syringe the ears methinks.

Well, besides my mis-hearing of "Born to be Wild."...

"And there's a wino-o down the road. I should have stolen Oreos." - Led Zeppelin, Stairway to Heaven

"Don't wanna leave your pizza burnin'" - Rolling Stones, Beast of Burden

"Blinded by the light. Revved up like a douche another runner in the night." - um, this is obvious

My sister used to think that Men With Hats' "Down Under" contained the line "You better run, you better take a bath."




PS, I just heard the MC Hawk station ID. I don't know WHAT we've got Mr. Hawking saying. It sounds to me like he's saying; "Hey Home Fries, you know who this is. When I'm not contemplating the depths of space and time, I'm listening to AuralMoon, the net's progressive rock garden." HOME FRIES? I know that's not it, so what have we got Prof. Stephen saying?

No way. He clearly says, "Wrapped up like a douche."

Evil Woman

For years, my brother thought that the line "Evil Woman" by ELO said:

"He is a woman".

In high school, this guy thought in "Carry On Wayward Son" that right brfore the break Walsh says "Oh"! And I said, he says, "No"! I could never get him to agree that since he says "Don't you cry no more", "No!" follows. Wouldn't hear it. Every day he'd walk by me and say "Oh"! Scarred me for life.

"Metal Gods" by Judas Priest. This guy used to swear it was "Land Of Oz". Repeated attempts to show him the song title did no good.

Ian Anderson has fooled me on many an occasion. When I get more time, I'll remember what I thought they wwere. I do know "Fylingdale Flyer" used to foul me up all the time. "Green screen liar" was mistaken as "Green Street Fire".

really?

Spaz, really? It's hard to separate the generation gap from idiocy. Stealing oreos? //and the Stones? you couldn't figure out the chorus/title lyric?

Rick - Judas Priest - like it matters?

Rick - Tull - I know I had one or two way back when but I forget them now - if I remember them, I'll post.

It does say Home Fries. The words came from Avian. I assumed it was one of those urban expressions that make no sense. Like when (and I think it was him, sorry if I'm recalling incorrectly) Moses said something was a bomb. I was told that means good? From my POV, there is nothing good about a bomb.

It's a mutation of "homies".

Having a house full of teenagers, I can tell you that "The Bomb" is a good thing. Just like in my day, we had Good "bad" and Bad "bad". I can't count the number of times I had to say "No, ma, I mean GOOD bad, not bad bad."

Not even when it's detonated within the locale of Bill Gates' navel?

We did have a thread that mutated into this once, I can't remember when though.

I asked my son for any he had any to share (and he told me one from Kansas' "A Glimpse of Home", but I forgot ), but he said this thread was a ripoff of a website with these things. I replied that there's a website for just about everything.

So only originals!

Oh and I have heard home fries, home slice and home chicken.

1. I never said that it was I who misheard the Zep and Stones' lyrics.
2. Yeah, I know what Home Fry is. It's a buddy of your's who's diminutive. Same as Small Fry but with affection. I just didn't think that We'd have Stephen Hawking saying that. I just KNEW I was mishearing, but I guess I wasn't.
3. I too am familiar with Home Chicken, Home Boy, and Home Slice.
4. I once saw a killer sketch on Mad TV in which the all the behind-the-scenes shapers of black culture were called to an emergency meeting. The leader said "we've got to come up with a new catch phrase. I heard President Bush (Sr.) say that something was "the bomb" last night on TV." The whole group just explodes with anger. Various characters said thinks like "White people keep taking our culture," "Dang, "the bomb" only lasted one year!" and "White kids pick up stuff fast, but when old and uncool white people pick it up, we gotta make a change."

The leader pops back in and said in a black-preacher mode:
"Well, we started with 'All That',"
uh-huh
"and then we had to go to "'all that and a bag of chips'"
yep
"and then "'the bomb'."
amen
"So any new ideas?"

Someone said, "Well what's bigger than 'the bomb?'"
Another: "I know! 'The Missle!' 'Man, that new song by Puff Daddy is "the missle."
"No, that's cheesy."
"Here's an idea: The H-Bomb."
"No, we should use "the bomb and a bag of chips."

Then the leader came back in and said very proffesorially, "We are going about this the wrong way. We need to change gears. Think destruction on a global scale."
"A-Bomb"
"No, Ebola."

They went nuts "this is the greatest one yet!" kind of thing.
Someone said, "This new fruit flavored drink is 'the ebola!'"
Leader guy: "No, just plain ebola. For example: "Man, her booty is ebola."

Roars of applause. "I'll get my people on it." and "It'll be on Jay-Z's new record that's out in two weeks." etc.

It was freaking hilarious.



OK, another misheard lyric.
My dad used to think "Faithfully" by Journey said "We all need the clowns to make us laugh." It's make us smile.

Good comeback. Side note - I can't sing for sh*&. When I was playing in a cover band in college, I always started off singing the songs until our lead singer learned the words - my memory was apparently much better than his. We probably had 100 songs in our repetoire - and the only song I sang live was the Clash "Should I Stay Or Should I Go"

Wished I'd seen that one Spaz - sounds hilarious...

I also remember a sketch from somewhere that played off the "bad" phrase - some hip brother explaining to lame cracker: "no man, BAD is GOOD"; cracker: so does that mean GOOD is BAD?" - I wish I could remember it better, because at the time it was hilarious.

you sure it's not "revved up like a Duece, another runner in the night?" Duece as in Duece-Coop.

I thought it was "Rock the Cash Box." I heard Casbah correctly, but didn't know what that was, so I assumed I wasn't hearing it right.

I don't think it's either on on the MMEB. Maybe a website will help.

The "All in the Family" theme was very misunderstood.

yeah, that's a good one too! especially that last solo line edith sings-
it sounds like "me ass on a salad grate". too funny.

i guess that line from good times was supposed to
be "hangin' in a chow line"...

i found it! neither of us were even close.

"Boy, the way Glen Miller played. Songs that made the Hit Parade. Guys like us, we had it made. Those were the days! Didn't need no welfare state. Everybody pulled his weight Gee, our old LaSalle (a car) ran great. Those were the days! And you knew where you were then! Girls were girls and men were men. Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again. People seemed to be content. Fifty dollars paid the rent. Freaks were in a circus tent. Those were the days! Take a little Sunday spin, go to watch the Dodgers win. Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin (five dollar bill). Hair was short and skirts were long. Kate Smith really sold a song. I don't know just what went wrong! Those Were the Days!"
