Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"In a Darkened Room"
Misheard Lyrics:
That beats the scar of skin so deep
Original Lyrics:
That beats the scar of sin so deep

Story about this misheard lyric by: Cody Finke

This kind of makes sense, since scars do appear on skin. Also, the Stranglers had a song called “Skin Deep”, so it made sense here.

There are additional misheard stories available.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Youth Gone Wild"
The Lyrics:
They call us "problem child"
I know, they were wanting to rhyme with the title, but that doesn't make it right. The correct way to to say it would have been "They call us problem CHILDREN" (plural).
