Misheard Lyrics:
Put another dog in the record machine.
Original Lyrics:
Put another dime in the record machine.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Karen Smith: I heard this on the sound system in a store I was in. The first time this line came up in the song, it seemed to sound to me exactly like "Put another dog in the record machine". Since that wouldn't make much sense, I listened closely to the rest of the song. The second time that line came up, I thought it sounded like "Put another dollar in the record machine". I was thinking for awhile it must be a fairly new song, as that would fit better the cost of playing something on today's record machines! But on listening further, I heard the line at least once more, and the word sounded more like "dime", fitting in an older song better. I got home and searched for the lyrics online, and found my third guess was the charm. The correct lyrics say "dime", and it is a song from the 1960s when a dime would typically play a song on record machines of the time.
"Killing Me Softly with His Song," Roberta Flack

Story about this misheard lyric by: Marlinda Jones: I have sung this song this way since I heard it the first time. And just today I woke up with the song in my head and sang it out loud and thought that can't be right. Lol so I looked it up and now I feel like an idiot. I've always gotten words wrong in songs. My sisters always made me sing these songs in front of people too. Hope they never hear about this one.
