    Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire"

    Misheard Lyrics. "Color wars, I can't take it anymore!"

    Correct lyrics- "Cola wars, I can't take it anymore!"

    I thought Billy was singing about the racial tensions between different races, and not being able take it anymore.... Would make sense that racial tensions would drive him crazy, but the Pepsi vs. Coke being the thing to send him over the edge was stupid....

    Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit."

    Misheard, "Remember what the dormouse said, "Keep your head, keep your head."

    Correct- "Remember what the dormouse said, "Feed your head, feed your head."

    Since White Rabbit is JA's mocking of "Alice In Wonderland"(they said they made it to make fun of the parents who told their children not to do drugs, but yet allowed them to read AIW and watch the movie which was loaded with druglike things, basically AIW seemed like an acid trip with disappearing, giggling tiles, a mysterious re-appearing and disappearing cat, and I think talking food), I thought the line was, "Keep your head," as the dormouse in AIW does talk about keeping your head(or at least implies it). The dormouse in AIW never said, "Feed your head,"....I was surprised that the lyric is "Feed your head," not "Keep your head,".

    You have to include 'Excuse me while I kiss this guy' because it's the url for a great trove of these lines - www.kissthisguy.com

    We once came up with all new lyrics to "I guess that's why they call it the blues" when a friend came up with "I guess that's why they call it cheap booze". :haha:

    Wife had been singing " Everybody's gonna' wanna' go" to Quinn the Eskimo for years,........the real lyrics are " Everybody's gonna' wanna' dose".

    She was retroactively embarrassed for forty plus years of not knowing that and singing it out quite loudly at shows.

    Rip Her To Shreds by Blondie.

    Misheard Lyric: "She's so tall, rip her to shreds."

    Correct Lyric "She's so dull, rip her to shreds."

    My misheard lyric makes sense because I thought it was about a homely woman being jealous of a female model and was so insecure, she wanted to rip the model to shreds.(I thought tall was a reference to female models generally being tall);)

    Worst ever:
    "Big Ole Jed had a light on"....

    No, the correct lyric is:
    "Big ole jet air-lin-er (Steve Miller's "Jet Airliner")

    I wonder why Robert Palmer wanted an "Orange Julius" on his chest in Bad Case Of Loving You?

    Check out the lyrics to almost any Nirvana song. I think I have misheard all off them.
