Misheard song Lyrics

My sister thought the part of Jingle Bells that went:

Making spirits bright.

She heard

Making beer and Sprite.

How a five year old knew about beer is all you need to know about her.
 
I throw my hands up in the air sometimes saying ay-yo, Gallileo
- Taio Cruz - Dynamite

The Real Lyrics:
I throw my hands up in the air sometimes saying ay-yo, gotta let go

I thought it was “Gallileo” for a decade. My kids still bug me about that one. Not as funny as Tony Danza (my all time favourite) but one of the only songs in recent memory that I misheard.
 
Eddie Vedder told a story at a Pearl Jam concert that when he and Mike Mcready first met, Mike swore the lyrics to the Kiss song was., "I wanna rock n roll all night, and part of every day". Haha
 
Secret asian man, secret asian man,
they've given you a number, oh,
they've taken 'way your name

Johnny Rivers
Secret agent man

Seriously, listen to the song and the way Johnny Rivers pronounces it.
Tell me honestly, even knowing what the lyrics really are, that it doesn't sound like this.
 
Ok this isn’t about lyrics but a group name instead. Growing up in the 70s Crosby, Stills, and Nash were on the radio a lot. My sister always thought the DJ was saying the group’s name was “Crosby Steals The Nash!” She thought that up until her 40s 🤣🤣
 
🎶 “Dressed up like a douche
Into the middle of the night…” 🎶

Blinded by the Light
Manfred Mann’s Earth Band
Oh that’s a classic for sure. I still think that’s what he’s saying 🤣

It was only recently that I discovered that song was written by Bruce Springsteen and not Manfred Mann.
Springsteen is on record saying that it took Manfred Mann to cover his song for people to think he wrote a song about feminine hygiene products.
