One of our recent staff polls was about misheard lyrics... What lyrics have you misheard, whether as a kid or later in life? Here's a selection of responses from Glyphers:
Preying Semanticist: "'Deck the halls with balls of jolly' is what my youngest daughter could be heard singing at Christmas"
Traveling Salesman: Back before there was an easy way to find out what the actual lyrics of a song were, there were many of us who though Jimi Hendrix sang, “S’cuse me while I kiss this guy” (whereas it was really “S’cuse me while I kiss the sky” from Purple Haze)
LexiCon Artist: "[My girlfriend and I] were watching a video of "Little Deuce Coupe" by the Beach Boys and she was flabbergasted that the lyrics were not 'My little two scoop..' (she thought it was about an ice cream cone??)"
What lyrics have you misheard? Please share!
