Say What?

Double Take

I love misheard lyrics.

Always an endless source of entertainment, it always makes me smile when I hear someone singing a strange version of a song that I know well.

I also find it funny when I do this myself, finding out later that I was an embarassment to musicians everywhere.

One of my all-time favourite misheard lyrics is…


Excuse me, while I kiss this guy…


This is, of course, from the song Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix. The original line is…


Excuse me, while I kiss the sky…



Double Take Two

I don’t listen to the radio very often, so I’m not really up on what’s hip.

I heard a song recently by the Pussycat Dolls on the radio where I thought I heard…


Don’t you wish your girlfriend was raw like meat…


I laughed and laughed.

What sorts of misheard lyrics have you been guilty of singing?
