When I was a little kid, there was a song that kept coming on the radio whenever I was in the car with my mom. Some of the lyrics were: "Don't fight 'em, don't fight 'em." I don't know the song at all. I thought they were saying "Milk botton, milk bottom." My mom was sort of horrified when I started singing along. :/

Years ago the song "Contant Craving" came on the radio when I was in the car, and instead of "Constant Craving," I sang "Don't say gravy." Got strange looks from my car-mates. As a result, years later, the word "gravy" still carries a certain weight in my circle of friends.

"I'ma gonna beat the gravy out of yous."

Talking I admit it

I sometimes think I hear actual words in rap lyrics.

But then I listen harder and realize that I'm hearing things.
As long as I don't hear them in my head, I guess I'm still all right though.

If it happens again, bop on down to the hospital. I can give you something that will fix that. You don't mind the shuffle, the drooling and the involuntary muscle movements do you?

Neil Diamond put on one of his "album sleeves" or "CD inserts", whatever you call them now, that his song Cherry, Cherry was often mis-sung as "She got the western movement." S/b "She got the way to move me". I thought that was hysterical.

I always laugh when I hear Blinded by the Light - by Manfred Mann's Earth Band

The actual lyrics are:

Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night


What I thought it was for years was:

Wrapped up like a douche
Another stoner in the night.

Blinded by the Light

No matter who's singing it, Manfred Mann or Springsteen, this has got to be one of the most mangled lyrics in history. The douche interpretation seems to be nearly universal. But then, the whole song is "Huh?" However, my dad, who was active in a few gangs roaming from the Bronx through eastern New Jersey in the late 1950s understands Springsteen lyrics perfectly.

Badger always heard "Suck the gypsy dead" instead of "Suffragette City"!

Also, in Queen's "I'm Going Slightly Mad" he hears "I'm not that talkative" instead of "I'm not my usual top billing"... He still swears his version is right.

Can anyone answer this question: in the Stone's "Sympathy for the Devil" the lyric goes
"And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
"
What does this refer to? I get most of the other historical references in the song.
