America the beautiful
All the time guys...all the time...
"We Can Work it Out," by the Beatles..."We've Been Working Out" (when that one happened, I was listening to someone request it on the radio, and I went, I didn't know the Beatles had a song called that! Then they started to play it, I was like, ohhh!)
A hymn that is called "Now Thank We All Our God," I misunderstood as "We Think We All Are God." Um...ok.
"Drift Away," by Dobie Gray...the part that goes "Give me the beat, boys," I always heard as "Give me the Beach Boys." I thought it meant that he had had a long hard day and just wanted to chill out and listen to the Beach Boys! It made sense to me. (Still does.)
"Down in the Boon Docks"...always thought it was "Down in the Boom Box." I never could figure out how they could be in the boom box!
By the way, those misinterpreted lyrics are called Mondegreens, because of a song that went, "They have slain the Earl of Moray and laid him on the green," and some lady thought it was, "and Lady Mondegreen." The name just stuck after that. There are whole Web sites devoted to these, and they are hilarious! I have more of these, I just can't remember them right now!
