    I've done that a million times, but the only example I can think of is The Cars' songs "My Best Friend's Girl." I thought he was singing "my best French girl" even though I knew it didn't make sense.

    "She's my best friend's girl

    But she used to be mine"

    It wouldn't make sense for him to say she's his best French girl, and then say that she used to be his.

    Paul Simon's Kodachrome: real lyrics are "I've got a Nikon camera, I love to take photographs...." I thought it was "I've got a mind for a camera, I love to take photographs..." I like my version better FWIW

    It wasn't until I started collecting hockey cards and learned a little bit of French from the bilingual texts on the backs that I realized 'She's so funkulah' was actually the French for the Peter Gabriel song 'Games Without Frontiers'.

    The correct lyric is 'jeux sans frontieres'.

    This never happened to me, growing up with Hendrix and CCR, but theirs are two classic examples of misheard lyrics.

    Purple Haze - 'Scuse me while I kiss the sky' misheard as ''Scuse me while I kiss this guy.'

    Bad Moon Rising - 'There's a bad moon on the rise'  misheard as 'there's a bathroom on the right'.

    I think we have all done that.

    I hate it when I sing along with the radio and the singer sings the wrong words.
