"Les Bicyclettes de Belsize," Engelbert Humperdinck
Misheard Lyrics:

Original Lyrics:
Les Bicyclettes de Belsize
Story about this misheard lyric by: Pete French: ....this makes more sense.
"The Apprentice," Gorillaz
Misheard Lyrics:
I remember
Original Lyrics:
I am a mirror
Story about this misheard lyric by: Kung-Fu Cutbug: For the longest time, I thought this line was "I remember", as in "I remember all the atrocities I've had to witness over these past several years; don't expect me to forget so easily." It was only after I went to a lyrics website that I realized it was "I am a mirror"--probably shorthand for "What you see in me is a reflection of what you see in yourself". Still a powerful lyric for a powerful song.
"Everybody Talks," Neon Trees
Misheard Lyrics:
It started with the whisper,
And that was with my keister.
Imagining my lips hurt,
I could be the chit-chat.
Original Lyrics:
It started with a whisper
And that was when I kissed her.
And then she made my lips hurt
I can hear the chit-chat
Story about this misheard lyric by: Daniel Sanchez: Looked up the lyrics because the way I heard it never made any sense.
"Where Did You Sleep Last Night?," Nirvana
Misheard Lyrics:
In my pants, in my pants.
Where the sun don't ever shine.
Original Lyrics:
In the pines, in the pines.
Where the sun don't ever shine.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Anon: The first line sounds even more like 'In my pants' in certain accents where 'my' is pronounced as 'ma'; South Africa and various regions of Great Britain for instance. This is due to the way Kurt Cobain doesn't clearly enunciate the word 'the'. The following line 'Where the sun don't ever shine' adds to the confusion if the listener is familiar with the expression 'stick it where the sun don't shine'. The implication of which is up the anus....commonly found 'in the pants'.
"Angel of Death," Slayer
Misheard Lyrics:
Ouch Switch! The meaning of pain
Original Lyrics:
Auschwitz, the meaning of pain
Story about this misheard lyric by: CJ Etelomar: Instead of Auschwitz, it sounded like Ouch Switch
Misheard Lyrics:
Shout, shout, Larry's all out
Original Lyrics:
Shout, shout, let it all out.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Gabe: Kept thinking they are talking about a guy named Larry
"Bittersweet Symphony," The Verve
Misheard Lyrics:
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony that's live.
Original Lyrics:
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Daniel Sanchez: Made sense the way I heard it, but searched up the lyrics one day and found out that I was wrong all these years.
