So it's basically just making up lyrics that sound like the real lyrics?

Well, just as Bob Dylan did, I used to think the lyric in 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand' was :

I get high! i get high! I get hiiiigh!

Turns out it is "I can't hide! I can't hide! I can't hide!"

John had to awkwardly break it to Dylan after he assumed the Beatles smoked weed before offering them a joint. Something like that.

Make up funny lyrics that someone could confuse with the real lyrics- example: "Sweep, city starling, doughnut rye," instead of "Sleep, pretty darling, do not cry," or something random like that.

dunno if this fits, and its probably been mentioned in misheard lyrics, but I can never figure out if on Taxman the line goes "declare the pennies on your eyes" or "declare the pennies on your rise".  I guess either makes sense...but I like 'eyes' as that's always how i've heard it.  "rise" doesnt make as much sense to me....I guess it could still imply the custom of putting pennies on the eyes of the dead, but i like the idea that Harrison is saying that even if you're dead you pay taxes on the 2 pennys that someone gives your corpse, rather then Harrison saying that you will rise from the dead and then pay taxes on those pennies.

I used to think that the lyric was "Mrs. K and H assure the public..." etc. from BFtBo Mr. Kite. But it's Messrs. Not Mrs.

Yep we tend not to stick with our past, especially if it's all about mistakes.

In I Am The Walrus, I got confused when John said "van" i thought he orignally said "man." That was only like 2 times when I was first getting into a kick of that song back in 2011 when I was listening to all The Beatles songs many for the first time.

And if you saw my love, I'll love her to.

Presumably, we've all done it: listened to a Beatles song and either a) unintentionally picked up the wrong lyric or b) knew darn well that probably wasn't the right lyric, but couldn't figure out the real line, and so stuck with the blunder for lack of a better alternative.  And if you personally have not done this, you probably know someone who has.

So what are some of your favorite misheard lyrics, whether of your own faulty ears or those of someone else?

Here are mine:

1) I was convinced the second verse of "Let it Be" said "And in my outer darkness ..."

2) My own Da' heard the lyric of "Taxman" as "... lay clever pennies on your eyes."

3) From the same source: the opening line of "Here, There, and Everywhere" was Paul singing, "Peter Weatherby ... I need my love to be here."  And an internet username was born. :-)

4) Was always unsure why, in "Tell Me Why", John sang, "Did he have to treat me oh-so bad?"

5) The naughtiest line in "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" came in the raunchy bridge: "I need a fix 'cause I'm going down, down to the bitch that I left uptown"

Of course, now that I know the real lyrics for the above songs, I still sing the stray lines on purpose, just because it's an inside joke now and it's fun.

So what are/were some of yours?  Even more interesting: are there any lyrics you're still unsure about?

The 2nd one! I still say "lay clever pennies on your eyes", even though I've tried to correct myself.

I heard that first one ''in my outer darkness'' in Let it be.

 

And I still sing ''back to the bitch that I left uptown'' in Happiness Is A Warm Gun. I just like it bettera-hard-days-night-paul-7

I thought it was "band" at first.
