Song Gaffes

Recommended Posts

Thought you were singing the correct words to a song, only to find out you were way off the mark?

List your lyrical gaffes and other mis-heard song words.

One of the most noteworthy songs was "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana.

Real Lyric: ''Here we are now, entertain us''

Misheard Lyric: ''Here we are now, in containers''

Then there was that whole "artichokes began to drool" line from TBBT title track, but we'll leave it at that... lol :D

Feel free to add.

There's a really old song from the 70s called Substitute by Clout.

The lyrics of the chorus are…

'If she doesn't come back. I'll be your substitute, whenever you want me'

A female friend of mine was so appalled when she heard it on the radio, she wouldn't tell me why at first. Finally admitting she thought the lyric was 'I'll be your [lady of the night], whenever you want me!' I almost died of laughter! She didn't live that one down for a while. :icon_cheesygrin:

I always liked that song… but didn't know the lyrics.

"at tottenham court road, I just come out of the ship" I know The Ship! it's a pub in London, not far from tottenham court road tube. Tiny but they play great music.

This makes me laugh because my husband told me when he was little he would sing "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" at Yule only he thought it was "Hark! The Hairy Angels Sing!"

As far as bands go, my ex-boyfriend was in a band and they used to do occasional covers of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Only problem was instead of "there's a bad moon on the rise" they used to think it was "there's a bathroom on the right!"

Then there was the time I played "Sharp Dressed Man" and my husband thought they were singing "Sod Bust Man" doing a song about farming. Now he calls them ZZ Topsoil.

He's not insane, I had him tested. Now me, on the other hand...:icon_lol:
