Bake me a pie of love
Bake me a pie of love, oh

'Cause that pie of love I keep dreaming of

This is what I thought for the longest time Steve Miller was singing:

Pick ole Jed and light up,
Don't carry me too far away.
Pick ole Jed and light up,
Cuz it's here that I've got to stay.

Also, while we're on the zoological theme, there's this line in the song "Optimistic" on Kid A that I initially heard as "fought off all the animals/living on Animal Farm." It turns out it's actually "fodder for the animals," but I still kind of like my version.

GAY PARADISE, PUT UP A FUCKING LIGHT

It's meant to be "they paved paradise and put up a parking lot" but at the least I always kept hearing fucking light, then realized it must be parking lot, and *something* paradise, but now that I read it the right way I hear gay instead of paved.

My mother always insists that “Rock the Casbah” from Rock the Casbah is “Fuck the Gasbar”. And is frequently surprised it’s on the radio.

As for me?
“It’s not too late” from Whip It, I always heard as “tattoo the stapler”

Which is confusing for multiple reasons.

The link to that page apparently "doesn't exist." Spooky.

Lately at work they've been playing Christmas Island and Mele Kalikimaka on the overhead speakers. Somehow I thought they were both one song until I did some Googling. I also imagined both of those songs being sung by the alien princess in Startropics.

Yesterday I was listening to the Tegan and Sara classic "(I Just Want) That Kitty You Have."

The lyrics are most definitely not "I'm putting out good vibrations, She's giving me bad citations."

Huh.

My favorite song about a cop isn't about a cop at all?!

Kind of a reverse of the thread, but I was deeply surprised that Billy Idol was singing “Ride the Pony” in Mony Mony.

I was certain I always heard that wrong and just never bothered to look it up until recently
