What songs have you realised that didn't say what you heard?

I've got loads

Big Yellow Taxi
"A Gay pair of guys put up a parking lot"
was what I heard.
real lyric...
"The paved paradise and put up a parking lot"

Also, quite recently.

Tinchy Stryder's - In My Sister.

ACTUAL LOL. Hahaa.

I sometimes find it hard to understand what Lady Gaga sings. Bad Romance is a good example of this. Maybe it's me, but I thought she was shouting jibberish "Baju ba roma" when she says "I want your romance."

When I first heard that Train song "Hey Soul Sister". I could have swore that I heard him sing " You gave me my life erection". But turned out that it was " You gave me my life direction".

I thought it was hilarious when the MSN blogger slammed Gaga for her Bad Romance lyrics because he thought:

"Want you in my rear window, baby, you're sick" (real lyrics)

was

"Want you in my bedroom when you're baby is sick." (misunderstoof lyrics)

I think NME or Melody maker used to do a regular feature on this.

One of my favs, Green Day - Good Riddance -

"Another turnip boy a ford stuck in the road"

I also work with a lady who's daughter thinks David Guetta has a song called "Sexy fish".

They don't actually say that?! It fits in with their other oh so inspiring lyrics.

In the Family Guy theme tune, many people thought Stewie was singing "effin cry" instead of "laugh and cry." Seth MacFarlane actually re-recorded the line.
