Misheard Lyrics:
Remember me, I'm the horse that had you baby...
Original Lyrics:
Remember me, I'm the one who had your babies.
Story about this misheard lyric by: A Quolla: Never could work out if it was a horse who "had you, Baby" or "had your babies". Just wondered why she thought she was a horse.

"Reminiscing," Little River Band
Misheard Lyrics:
Now as the years roll on, each time we hear our favorite song
The memories come along
Motorcycle, I was, pendamy I was rinner nishing.
Original Lyrics:
Now as the years roll on, each time we hear our favorite song
The memories come along,
Older times we're missing, spending the hours reminiscing
Story about this misheard lyric by: Mike Jones: Heard "motorcycle, I was, ..." the very first time I heard it on the radio. Every time it came back on (this was decades before Spotify!) I would listen and try to make sense of it. Finally figured out "spending the hours reminiscing", but the first part still sounds like "motorcycle" to me to this very day.
