INXS's, "Don't Change"
Misheard Lyrics:
Don't change the earth
Don't change a thing for me
Original Lyrics:
Don't change for you
Don't change a thing for me
The "you" in the chorus is kind of muffled. And Michael Hutchence's ascent gives it a "er" or "er" quality. Also, the first lines of the song are "I'm standing here on the ground, The sky above won't fall down" So, "don’t change the earth" just made sense to me and that's how I always heard it.
