We've all done it at some point or another - we thought the song said one thing, only to find out later that it said something completely different.
Tell me about some of your misheard lyrics.
"Look at it this way: think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of 'em are stupider than that."
- George Carlin
"It shouldn't be expected that people are necessarily doing what they appear to be doing on records."
- Sir George Martin, All You Need Is Ears
"The music business will be revitalized by musicians, not the labels or Live Nation. When the musicians decide to put music first, instead of money, the public will flock to the fruits and the scene will be healthy again."
Not a very good one, but I always thought the "treating people just like pawns at chess" in War Pigs was "treating people just like poker chips." It's not all that far removed.

Oh, a better one, that crappy Candlebox or whatever song that yarls "left me far behind" just ahead of the chorus, I misheard as "loved me from behind." I knew that couldn't be right, but it fit my opinion of the music well enough, so I left it be.
The Pearl Jam one that's been around for years on Youtube by misheardlyricsguy is a ****************in classic!!!!

I suspect that many here are far to young to know, but they king (pun fully intended) of all misheard lyrics was the Kingsmen's version of "Louie Louie" from the 1960. There were several versions of what the lyrics were, none correct, and all rather obscene, at least for the time. The FBI actually investigated this, following a complaint. They submitted the recording to all their technologies, and couldn't come to any conclusion. There is a 160 or so page file which has been released on FOIA. You can probably find it online, try the louienet for a start.
