a-hard-days-night-ringo-8LOL, that's funny.

In Happiness Is A Warm Gun, I always hear "Down to the bitch that I left uptown," so every time I listen to it I have to think for a couple seconds and figure out what the actual word is.

I still hear that, I don't even know the real lyrics lol. I should google them or something.

 

Edit: oh it's ''bits''. I actually liked bitch better.

I thought that "Yes we're going to a party party" in Birthday was "Yes we're going to a pirate party,"- which probably makes more sense.

"I don't think we were actually swimming, as it were, with shirts on, 'cos we always wear overcoats when we're swimming,"-

What about "Sie liebt Dick, schöner kann es gar nicht sein"?

Before I watched the movie: A Hard Day's Night the lyric from the song: "Tell me Why" sounded to me like: "but you left me sitting on my arm". It was too late when I realised it was "own" instead of "arm" lol.

 

EDIT: This happened literally just now, I thought the outro to "I'm Looking Through You" was Ka-Ching Ka-Ching, realised it was You've changed You've Changed.

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. It doesn't have to make sense or be that funny, like mine wasn't. Sorry if this doesn't make sense.

Basically, it's like the Misheard Lyrics thread, except the lyrics you post weren't actually misheard by you.

I don't know how to say this to make it clear. I'll try to clarify more if you don't understand this.

Note by Ahhh Girl: posts 305-314 were a separate thread and were merged into this one on 5 May 2014.

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.

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.

And I also thought that, in Baby It's You, instead of "cheat, cheat," it was... something else. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

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