Music Misheard lyrics

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those chicks were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightening
But they fought with expert timing


It's been pointed out to me that in fact it's not "chicks", but "cats", although to me "chicks" creates a more pleasing mental image. A different sort of cat fight, I suppose :)

Alright, it's been pointed out to me that it's in fact not "cats" either, but "kicks"! What can I say, I have a special talent for getting it wrong when it comes to lyrics!

Good grief, if I had a dollar for everytime I've gotten a song's lyrics wrong, I'd be a wealthy man right now. My biggest problem is that I don't even do this subtly... I'm the guy out on the dance floor screaming the wrong lyrics at the top of his lungs... much to the amusement of everyone else. Either I am hard of hearing, or I actually need to have the word NERD written across my forehead in big letters.

"Dude looks like a lady" or however that goes? For years and years I thought it was "Doin it like a lady".

True story :p

For YEARS I thought I heard this:

Blinded by the light
wrapped up like a douche...

it's revved up like a deuce

I have no idea what that means, either, but those are the correct lyrics. :p

by the way, something misheard is called a "mondegreen" :cool:

I botched up the Coyote / Roadrunner cartoon song so badly it hurts to remember it. Hey, I was just a kid.

That coyote's really a crazy clown
when will he learn that you never can bowl him down?
Poor little Road-Runner never bothered anyone
Cause he's in the society - the society of havin fun

I have no idea what the 'society of havin fun' is - but I wish there was one.

When I was in my early 20s maybe, I was doing a painting project with my sister and listening to the radio when "Groovin" came on. Only then did I realize that the song was not about some weird threesome "you and me and Lesley", but "you and me endlessly". I thought my sis might faint from laughter.

I don't know how long I visualized it as "Knights in white satin", which is ridiculous, since that doesn't make any sense in the context of the rest of the lyrics.

I suppose only us older folks will remember this one...

Ho, ho, ho it's my dick
You know
Never believe it's not so
It's my dick
You know
Never believe it's not so
