Misheard or Misunderstood Song Lyrics - What you Think They Are and what they Should Be

Post by The Browncoat Cat on Tue Mar 22, 2011 3:54 am

So, which lyrics have you misheard for years and then been quite surprised about when you have seen the written down?

For years I have been mishearing the line "Just be close at hand." from the chorus of You don't have to say you love me as "Just because you can".

For absolutely ages I laboured under the impression that the lines

"Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one"

From the Michael Jackson song of the same name was actually:

"Billie Jean is not my Mom
She's just a girl who claims that I am her son".

Don't ask why I heard that - because I certainly don't know.

In Madonna's "La Isla Bonita" it don't half sound like she says 'chop the goolie'.......
