Song Lyrics

A comment on a previous post about misheard song lyrics got me asking around and looking for more. So far we have:

"The ants are my friends, they're blowing in the wind" (instead of the answer my friend, is blowing in the wind. Bob Dylan)
"Excuse me while I kiss this guy" (Excuse me while I kiss the sky. Jimi Hendrix)
"You might as well face it, you're a dick with a glove"
"Bill Oddie, Bill Oddie, put your hands all over my body" (Madonna)
"Lets pee in the corner, lets pee in the spotlight" (REM)
"We three Kings of Aurientah"
"i, sat on the floor, biting my tie,isn't it good, norwegian wood"
"If Man is 5, if Man is 5, Then the devil licks zits" (instead of "the devil is 6" Pixies - Monkey Gone to Heaven)
"I want to be a door" (instead of I want to be adored - The Stone Roses)
"I see you baby, chicken an eggs, chicken an' eggs" (I see you baby, shakin that ass, shakin that ass)

These just tickle me pink. Make me clutch my sides and laugh out loud. Please note this is not LOL or even ROFL. I don't do that. Not now, not as a teenager. Not ever.

So what's your misheard song lyrics?

My son thought it was "Away in a Manger, no crisps in the bed" (well he would) and I heard another one recently about "It's Raining Men" being confused with "Israeli Men" which I think is hilarious. I LOVE "the ants are my friends" hilarious LX

"It's a hard egg
Nothing but a hard egg"

Bonnie Tyler's "It's a heartache"

Oh very funny. Just what I needed.

I can only recall someone confusing "For Reverend Blue Jeans" by Neil Diamond (For ever in Blue Jeans).

"I'm a Prima Donna" instead of Ivory Madonna, UB40

Funny. My best is still the Ants.

"Beat my wife, beat my wife!" instead of Piet ma frau, piet ma frau... red-chested cuckoo.. and that came from a 6 year old!!!! Subliminal!

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Oh very good! Val sent me over after I wittered on about a mass of flying ants (not quite blowing in the wind) in the yard yesterday!

Shelley said...

"There's a bathroom on the right" (instead of "bad moon on the rise" by Creedence Clearwater)

Hahaha, now I get it. I don't remember anymore, but we used to botch up the National Anthem pretty bad. Gracious pies for spacious skies, things like that!


Reminds me of my son learning the 10 Commandments in Sunday school. Ten children stood in front of the congregation each one stepping up to the microphone to repeat the Commandment they had been learning for weeks.. My son said this...
"And you can't say the name of the Lord in Spain."
His translation of taking the Lord's name in vain! LOL!
I'm following your witty blog now. I've started a blog guided strictly by the "Little Black Box" and altho the journey is new, it is, thus far, very interesting!
Check it out! You're on the blog roll!
Great blog!

Oodles of them. Since I am not a native English speaker, my first English songs were sung phonetically. It must have been a hoot.

Not mine but one of my favourites is "Red red wine, steak lobster meat"
instead of UB40s red red wine, stay close to me....

tam said...

haha, Macjanet!
Also, that one that always sounded like sheep in the desert
"Baa baa Bahrain"
Which I recently found out is actually meant to be "Barbara Ann."
