Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"I Think We're Alone Now"
Misheard Lyrics:
Children behave
That's what they say when we're together.
Original Lyrics:
'Children, behave!'
That's what they say when we're together.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Raddmann Gee

This isn't really a 'misheard' lyric, just a misinterpreted lyric. I always thought they meant that when these two people were together that it has some sort of mystical affect on children that causes them to behave. Apparantly, they were just being told to behave. Oops.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"I Think We're Alone Now"
The Funny Lyrics:
I think we're alone now
there doesn't seem to be anyone around
Why They're Funny:
He should double-check, just to be one hundred percent sure. And perhaps he meant "anyone else" around, because Tommy himself and the person he's with are certainly "anyone".

"Sweet Cherry Wine"
This song was on the no play list on Armed Forces AFRTS stations due to the lyrics "We aint gonna fight, only God has the right to decide who's to live and to die". In a military-only redo, the line is altered slightly to appease the generals and admirals of the time.
