The Misheard Lyrics thread!
« on: January 25, 2009, 01:05:43 AM »

Oh, this can be fun! We all have them! Maybe we'll even find some corrections here:

Until recently, I always thought this one part of "Soul to Squeeze" by Red Hot Chili Peppers was "Oh, and rub some cocoa butter on my feet." But it's really, "Oh, a rollercoaster, but I'm on my feet."

That one is pretty lame, but I know you guys can come up with some better ones. Oh, and for "Astronaut" by Amanda, I thought it went, "Fuck you are my love the astronaut.." it just made sense to me that way, but then I found out it was "but" and I was all, "Ohhhhh"

When I first Bad Habit (in the sixth grade), this was what it sounded like to me:

"Cutting keeps your words at bay,
down into the source that stains.
Happiness is just a gash away.
When I open up familar scars,
glee goes shooting like a star.
'Cover-it" hasn't failed to follow so far...

And you might say it's self-indulgent,
you might say it's self-destructive,
but, you see, it's more productive
than if I were to be happy.

And pens and penknives take the blame--
strain my neck and scratch my name,
but the ugly marks are worth the momentary gain.
When I jab a sharpened object, in-
quiring angels seem to sing into blades in memorandum.

And you might say it's self-indulgent,
you might say it's self-destructive,
but, you see, it's more productive
than if I were to be happy.

And sappy songs about sex and cheating--
bland accounts of two lovers meeting
make me want to give mankind a beating.

And you might say it's self-destructive,
but, you see, I'd kick the bucket
sixteen times before I'd kick the habit.

And as the skin rips off,
I challenge the revolting Goth.
And even if I quit,
there's not a chance in Hell I'd stop.
And anyone can see the signs--
missions in the summertime (wtf?)
Thank you for your pity! You are too kind!

And you might say it's self-inflicted,
but, you see, that's contradicted--
why on Earth would anyone practice self-destruction?

On bad opinions I'm sick of feeding;
they're not worthy; their minds are cheating.
Makes me want to give mankind a beating...

I've tried bandages and sinking;
I've tried gloves and even thinking;
I've tried fastening (I'd not heard of Vaseline at this point);
I've tried everything!

No one cares if your back is bleeding!
They're concerned what there is hair is seeing! (WTF?)
Looking back, it was all maltreating;
every thought that occurred misleading
makes me want to give myself a beating..."

You lucky goes ((Had no idea what she was saying))
From blue to gold ((I used think she said politcal or something))
So thank you for all your help
Ah oh oh
I know you want
To jump around
But try to contain yourself
You always struck me as the type to take it lightly
But now you're gonna have to shut your mouth and fight me

my mum thought the chorus of Tegan and Sara's Walking With A Ghost song went "I was smoking with a ghost". in her defense, i was playing the CD on a shitty car stereo, and she didn't know the title of the song. if i really listen, i can kinda hear it.

Honey honey, touch me, baby, ah-hah, honey honey
Honey honey, hold me, baby, ah-hah, honey honey
You look like a movie star
But I'd like to screw you hard
And, honey, to say the least, youre a dog-gone beast


instead it's i like just who you are.

When I was younger I always, always misheard the lyrics and had weird shit going on that didn't make sense. So now when I write songs I purposely misspell words to make them look like other words, or I'll sing them so they sound like other things.
