Unfortunately, I'm listening to Peter Cetera's Glory of Love right now. For some reason, I've always heard "I will be there to fight for your honor" as him singing to a judge.

I know there are better examples of this sort of thing out there; I just can't remember 'em at the moment. Help.

This doesn't really have anything to do with the topic... but I didn't want you to be the only asshole with a post here... :lol:

So I was listening to the radio today and that BeeGees song You Should Be Dancing came on... and I laughed cuz I thought it would be funny if someone misheard the line "What you doin'on your back A-ah?" as "Do ya do it in the butt? A-ah"

Um... this may only have been funny in my head. :?

Not at all. One of my friends always heard one of the lyrics of Sheryl Crow's "Strong Enough" (to be My Man) as 'Will you be man enough to man my can?'

(You can throw in your own Match Game lyrics to what he thought "Strong Enough to BLANK my Can" might be...)

Two words. Afternoon Delight.
I'm not sure if that's what you meant, but it's definitely related.

i've always heard Beck's "got two turn-tables and a microphone" as "gotta two-ton midget and a microphone"

and then of course there's STP's "take time with a wounded ham"

Or such hits as Michael Bolton performing "When a man loves a walnut", or Jimi Hendrix doing Purple Haze, singing "'scuse me while I kiss this guy"

While we're on the subject, to this day when Melissa Etheridge sings 'I wanna come over, to hell with the consequence', I hear 'I wanna come over, to help with the concert plans'. I just thought she was a very obliging friend.

I Want it That Way. Which is also kinda appropriate for this thread subject. I'm going to lay my head down and cry that I knew the name of a Backstreet Boys song.

Hey, what happened to my post? Thanks for quoting it.

Oh, and I re-read it and realised that re the Big Yellow Taxi thing, I wrote that backwards. Sorry and stuff. I know there's no "fucking lie". :roll:

I can't even get my mistakes right this morning.

Shouldn't the title of this thread be something along the lines of Misheard Lyrics? They aren't really alternative meanings.

And Gretchen, I don't think it is an alternative meaning; that is exactly what Afternoon Delight is about.

I always heard consequence as constant threats. :lol:

I meant the thread to be alternative meanings. But people have changed it to Misheard Lyrics. Which seems like a better use of this space.

A couple of my friends used to be in a band. They did a really fun version of "Guantanamera," but you could always hear a bunch of people singing along, "One ton tomato."

Back on topic:

"Morning Glow is long past due" makes me think (s)he needs to be evicted.

Don't ask me why I know lyrics to the musical Pippin and I won't ask you why you're listening to Peter Cetera.

Add a little lettuce and you've got a lovely sandwich there, if a bit on the large side.
