So did I actually! Honestly, my collection isn't exactly flush with Stevie Nicks numbers.

More recently, I mistook the lyrics to "Pumped Up Kicks," thinking it said
"All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my brother." For quite a while I wondered what the brother was going to do when he caught up with the kids. I finally realized it says "All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my bullet.")
I heard a DJ on local radio quoting it as, "All the other kids with the plumped up lips." I think she thought the song was about Botox. Seriously?!? You work at the radio station!!

For the longest time I really liked, and could never find, that Rage Against the Machine song, "Where the Redneck Kids are F*&ked." It wasn't until much later that I realized the song was "Renegades of Funk."

I think it's "Soy un perdedor" which translated means "I'm a loser." (I didn't know this one either until a girlfriend cleared it up for me...)

Yeah, I imagine she got no end of grief from her coworkers for that one.

Lol - that Rage misunderstanding is even better than mine - I'm going to remember that! Makes you wonder how common it is for their lyrics to be misunderstood...

Anything by Pearl Jam. See the youtube video by misheardlyrics for yellow ledbetter. The whole thing is hilarious.

My swmbo subjects me to lots of second-hand top 40 radio when we're in the car.
There's one track where I swear Rihanna is singing "we found love in a homeless place."
They claim she's saying "hopeless," but I don't buy it.

I always thought the Rolling Stones were singing "I'll never be your big Suburban". Was many years until someone corrected me telling me it was "beast of burden".

Years ago, I found myself (unwillingly) dragged to a dance club. A few drinks later, I was loudly singing along to a catchy tune..."Snap my pick-cha (picture)!"

Except I found out it was actually "Slap my bitch up!"

I felt duped.
