Unintended lyrics


Music to sooth the savage beast (breast).What songs do you know that people routinely misunderstand the lyrics, to the concernation or amusement of the artist. For example Dylans's "Excuse me while I turn and kiss the guy" (kiss the sky). Nylons "Give me the Beach Boys and free my soul" (Give me the beat boys and free my soul I want to get lost in the rock and roll)

Hey Sean;

Great link. I would like to say i just had one of those Oh God, Now I have heard it all..." moments; but then again I only just listen to the Stairway to Heaven link with that great picture.
It's pretty easy to hear the "rich fag jew" line at the end of "Baby You're a Rich Man", which was in reference to Brian Epstein.

"I need a one ton tomato." How many times did I hear that Juan Tanamera (sp?) song performed on the NYC subway? I lost count.
Ok, I'm old. A deuce IS a hotrod, but a specific hotrod - based on the 1932 Ford Coupe or roadster body - deuce referring to the "2" in 1932 (aka Little Deuce Coupe by the Beach Boys), or was that the Beat Boys? Besides, I always thought it was "REVVED up like a deuce", anyway.

One of the best I remember was "Spill the Wine", where Eric Burdon sings .."spill the wine, take that pearl" which some thought was "dig that girl" or "dick that girl"!

Also, Steely Dan's Kid Charlemagne where:

All those day-glow freaks
Who used to paint their face

is often thought to be

All those dago freaks
Who used to pay the face
"The smell of that chick just put my spine out of place." -- from David Bowie's Suffragette City.

Years later I finally learned that the line is actually "This mellow thighed chick just put my spine out of place."
Elton John, Crocodile rock and bunch of other 70's tunes while he was loaded.
