Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, has at least one song that they’ve always sung with the wrong words.
One of my worst lyrical moments:
From Michael Jackson’s “Black or White”
Misheard Lyric: It’s Black, It’s White, It’s W.
Real Lyric: It’s Black, It’s White It’s Tough For You
And those of us living in our college apartment on Fruit St. will never forget our roommate Joe butchering the opening line from this song:
From Alanis Morissette’s You Ought Know:
Misheard Lyric: I want you to know, that I’m half-baked for you.
Real Lyric: I want you to know, that I’m happy for you.
Speaking of songs written about Dave Coulier, my all-time favorite flub is from my brother Jordan – who used to help me review LOST here on the blog – who for the longest time sung along to this as he was growing up watching Uncle Joey and the gang.
From the Full House theme song
Misheard Lyric: You miss your old familiar friends, waiting to surround the bear.
Real Lyric: You miss your old familar friends, but waiting just around the bend.
Have a favorite misheard lyric from your youth? Have a friend who completely destroyed the lyrics to a popular song?
