    Did Morrissey of The Smiths really put his girlfriend in a Korma?

    Did the late great Jimi Hendrix really try in Purple Haze to kiss this guy?

    Any other offers of misheard song lyrics?
     
  2. My Dad had me convinced for years this was called 'The Butcher Song' for that very reason!
     
  3. Gala -Freed from desire. 'He's got his trampoline' should be 'He's got his strong beliefs'
     
  4. You can crush us,
    You can bruise us,
    But you'll have to answer to...

    My only defense was Joe didn't half mumble and I was young!

    Queen's 'Beelzebub has a devil for a sideboard...'
    But my favourite is my children's version of 'Away in a Manger':
    "The cat on the lorry, the baby awakes." !!

    Queen.
    "Flash! Ahhaaaah...
    ...he's a billy-goat!"
    ( 1:28 )
     
  8. When I was at Infant school we used to sing "If you're a friend of Jesus, you're a friend of mine". Except I was there belting out "If you're afraid of cheeses, you're a friend of mine".
     
  9. Oh, and my ex used to think that "I'm your venus, I'm your fire" was "I'm your penis, I'm your fire".

    'Rock the kazbah' - '**** the cat's bum'

    Sophie Ellis-Bextor- 'Anal-fisting love- why does it feel so good?'

    sorry- a bit crude!

    Haha, brilliant!
    There was that song by Toni Braxton "Unbreak my Heart" . somewhere in the middle I'm sure she sings "sage and onion, sage and onion..." I've still not worked out what the actual lyrics are!!

    I always think of this if it's a bit misty - Simon ands Garfunkel "Bright Eyes"
    "There's a fargle on the horizon"

    Madonna's 'Young girl with eyes like the desert' always sounded to me like 'Young girl with eyes like potatoes'.
    And when Queen's 'Don't Stop Me Now came out, I thought one of the lines was 'I am a rocking chair on my way to Mars'.
    I have misheard many song lyrics over the years - much to the delight of family members [​IMG]

    Anyone else think a line in Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' sounds like 'Spare him his life from his pork sausages'?
    I've also wondered for years whether or not Ken Dodd was singing 'Happiness' or 'A Pen1s' (ie '...the greatest gift that I possess') ;-)

    ... and how could I forget Neil Diamond's 'The Reverend Blue Jeans'?
     
  16. I thought it was from his Wall's sausages.
     
  17. Not to mention the Billy Ocean song "When the go and get stuffed, the tough get going"
     
  18. In Primary school I loved Row row the Boat but never understood 'life is BUTTER dream', and Our Father 'HELLO' be thy name.
    Not song lyrics but it was years before I clicked!
     
  19. There was an REM song yonks ago, and I was (and am still!) convinced I could hear the lyrics 'Call me Cheryl Baker now'. What I can't work out is, how REM even knew who Cheryl Baker was?!
