Re: Intentionally misheard lyrics new [re: jareth13]  

Here's an embarrassing misheard lyric:

in "Ashes To Ashes", I always sang
"For the next Arabians"
instead of "I want an axe to break the ice"

I actually read the lyric book to Scary Monsters just the other day and discovered that. Oops! I've been singing it wrong for over a year.

Don't look at the carpet, I drew something awful on it

We intententally change the lryics so that they suit our dirty little minds. I know sometimes when I'm listening to songs then go read the lyrics they are totally different. And sometimes it just cause the were accually saying the wrong words.

Re: Intentionally misheard lyrics new [re: SuperCreepGrrl]  

when I heard Cactus for the first time I thought that Bowie sings : ....sitting here wishing on a semen float...
when it goes :Sitting here wishing on a cement floor...
..heh...

"You don`t put a bra in a drier, it warps!"

Replace "float" with "flow" and we made the same mistake!

Recently someone said the saddest thing about the fall of the Berlin wall is that you can no longer defect. There's nowhere left to go.

Re: Intentionally misheard lyrics new [re: ScreamingByron]  

If you rewatch the "Afraid" from the NYE broadcast you might catch Bowie doing a couple lyric switcheroos. The beatle and Roxy Music lines are obvious, but there was one notable one that could spark a new thread:

"I put my faith in medication"(It's usually "education")

Is he hankering for days past? Currently using mood equilizers?

I don't think I've ever laughed so mush, in my whole life!

Prayer doesn't sound like barge......LOL!!!!

The "You can, By God! It's Monday!" thing had me in stitches.

Either "Silly Bald Fool" or "Chairman Mao / Jim and Moe" is the best, I reckon

Or maybe "But but Chad / the chair is not my son."

Or "It's got nothing to do with you, you walking bastards"

No wait, the best is:

"Blue, blue, 'letric blue,
Blue's the colour of my SHOE."

They need to invent a "Crying With Laughter" icon...

*Can hardly type, due to uncontrolable laughter fit*

Re: Intentionally misheard lyrics new [re: romanticfool]  

from blue jean:

"she's got a Polish bike"
and
"she's got platinum roots"

instead of police bike, and Latin roots. i was baffled for a long time, wondering why he mentions that her bike is from Poland...

Re: Intentionally misheard lyrics new [re: koolerthanjesus]  

I was viewing this clip from Little Wonder on the Jay Leno show and he's singing the beginning of the song and I swear I thought he said, "Stinky weather pants, shaggy hand" and then went on with, "Don't be mourning Dr. Grumpy Gnome..." o_o

Although I just looked up the lyrics and apparently I wasn't too far off.
Stinky weather, Fat shaky hands
Dopey morning Doc, Grumpy gnomes

~ Jelli dies. x_x

We Prick You new [re: CloverThePoet]  

I just thought of another one:

In "We Prick You" instead of "you show respect, even if you disagree"

I always heard "you showed us that, even if it isn't good."

Richard Cory went home last night and put a bullet through his head.
