What song lyrics have you ridiculously misheard?

Have you ever gone a considerable amount of time swearing you knew a lyric in a song only to find out that it's not right? Which song and what lyric was it? (Also include correct lyric.)

For me just this morning I was listening to King of Anything by Sara Bareilles, and though not so totally off, I have always thought she sang, "Who cares if we disagree; you annoy me; who made you king of anything", when the words are "You *are not* me". LOL

  • Neil Diamond: "Forever In Blue Jeans". For the longest time, I thought it was "For Reverend Blue Jeans." I know that sounds stupid!

  • The 1960's song "Venus in Blue Jeans" to me sounded like "Penis in Blue Jeans".

    There was a song, earlier still I think by Frank Sinatra, that had the line "There goes another rubber tree plant". I always thought it was "There goes another lavatory plant".

  • The Go-Gos "Our Lips Are Sealed"

    I thought they were singing "Almonds are Peanuts"

    By the way, because I was a boy, I had to publically declare my hatred for that song in school, but secretly I kind of liked it.

  • Marilyn Manson says "Don't know if I can open up" at the beginning of The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles. I thought he said "Don't know, fucking open up".

  • When I was a child I did this all of the time. Bob marelys wait in vain... "Tears and my eyes burn" was "tears in my iceberg" to me.

    There was also this song by ace of bass... "all that she wants". It came out and was popular when I was around four years old and obviously I didn't understand the meaning of the song.. So I thought it was about a lady that kidnapped children. Just think about it "all that she wants is another baby... She's gonna get ya" hahahah it scared the living daylights out of me!!!

    Also the Rolling Stones beast of burden was "pink suburban" for whatever reason.

  • I can't think of any now but I've done this many a time. I hate it when you're on Youtube and someone says a sentence that sounds like the lyrics and you can't listen to that song again without thinking of that messed up sentence.
