Mis Heard Lyrics

Rather than Hi-Jack the current ". . . horrible lyric. . . " thread I thought I'd start this one.

Let's kick it off with the classic:

"There's a bathroom on the right."

Of all the songs with misconstrued lyrics, the most important one in my lifetime has got to be, Louie Louie.

 

A recording by The Kingsmen in 1963 is the best-known version. The Kingsmen's edition was also the subject of an FBI investigation about the supposed but non-existent obscenity of the lyrics, an investigation that ended without prosecution.[2] The song is ranked #55 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".

 

No other song comes close.

Sometimes I think you guys actually ENJOY reinventing the wheel... :freak:
I looked mine up, they didn't have it like I have it.

 

Well, that changes everything then. ;)

Sorry, what song is that from? Hard to believe you misheard it, given that it's just the one word... ;):P

 

:laugh:

"There's a bathroom on the right."

Song doesn't spring immediately to mind - what is it, & by whom?

 

Bad Moon on the Rise - Creedence

Not necessarily mis-heard lyrics, but the countdown Lindsey Buckingham does before his song "Trouble" sounds like, "A two, a bird, A fowl.

 

Maybe he wrote that during duck hunting season.

 

:idk

Reminds me of a Simpsons episode when (can't remember who) has a heart attack.

 

Marge says to Homer "quickly - perform CPR"..... he starts singing 'I see the bad moon arising'. D'oh :facepalm: !

He was foreshadowing Stevie singing about the "one-winged dove"... :D
