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...

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.
