Amusing Misheard Song Lyrics

Have you heard any? I'll start you off with a couple that spring to mind:-

Bohemian Rhapsody" "Is this the real life ... or is it just Battersea?"

To Paul Young's song that goes "everytime you go away, you take a piece of me with you"
- everytime you go away, you take a piece of MEAT with you!

" I can see clearly now LORRAINE has gone!"

To the song "People will say we're in love" - people will say we're in Hove!

I've heard of people mistaking the old Beatles lyrics from Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (or whatever it's called).
"The girl with kaleidoscope eyes..."
becomes-
"The girl with colitis goes by..."

'..the silicon chip insider her head..' from 'I don't like Mondays' up to about 2 years ago always sounded like 'the silk and cip besider her head'...always wondered why the song never made sense...then suddenly it dawned on my 20 years later what the actual words were Image Image Image Image Image

ok I'm a slow learner Image Image Image

Misheard song lyrics are called MONDEGREENS (in case you want to google it and find more!)

Got the song slightly misquoted when I said "I can see clearly now Lorraine has gone" - should be "I can see CLEVELAND now Lorraine has gone" (more funny I think you'll agree)!

To "there's a bad moon on the rise" misheard as "there's a bathroom on the right"

To "you and the night and the music" misheard as "you and the night and the mucus"!

Like a virgin, touched for the 31st time!"

To "I've grown accustomed to her face" - "I've thrown a custard at your face!"

Of course we may well remember the ad. with the song "the Israelites" misheard as
"my ears are alight!"

When I was small the song 'Claudette' was playing. I asked my dad why The Everly Brothers were singing so passionately about a courgette.

Thanks for your posts - I knew the Lucy In The Sky one but still funny to be reminded of it!
