    "Excuse me while I..."

    Given that both sound pretty much identical, I guess that's less a mishearing so much as it's a mis-nuancing?

    My sister used to think that Ray Stevens (and presumably the multitude of others who covered the song) was singing 'I'm misty through my chin, love...' in his chartbusting 1975 version of Misty.

    He wasn't, of course. That would have been quite ridiculous.

    My Mum loved Misty, so me and big bruv got them to play it over the tannoy at Butlin's Filey that year for her.

    He used to sing (deliberately, threatening me, not as a mishearing):

    Oh Misty, you're gettin' a hidin'

    There was actually an 'unofficial' (i.e. cheap and uncommissioned) Joy Division lyric book I saw that had the lyrics from 'Ice Age' as:

    "See my head across the case
    Buried in the sand"

    Someone on here thought that the lyrics to that tune were: 'keep on doing whatcha doing, you're gonna get leprosy!', which I found rather amusing.

    An ex of mine thought that the line from the Talking Heads' And She Was were:

    'And she was lying in the grass
    And she could see an earmuff factory'


    She probably wasn't alone in this.

    An old friend was convinced that Julian Cope was singing 'Wash my cotton socks I'm in the nude'.

    I always heard it as 'where's my cotton socks...'
    And I also thought it was 'notion' in 'Surfing USA.'

    The Guardian has covered a lot of the fallout over the latest Ghostbusters film. One of the comments had a person stating that a childhood friend thought that Ray Parker Jr was singing 'Those Bastards.'

    I just saw this and my mouth fell open a little bit. So that's not the lyric, then?

    I always thought it was 'I want the truth to be said', but I'm not sure that's right, either.

    Yeah, it might be True, but that doesn't make it right.

    Going back to memories of Scout camp aged about 12, sitting around the fire singing along to Bohemian Rhapsody on someone's Walkman, I still vividly recall how no-one could work out the bit about Beelzebub – perhaps unsurprisingly. I think our best guess was "The earl's a poof, has the devil got a sack for me?".

    I must have heard Turning Japanese over a hundred times but upon hearing it today (thanks to 6 Music's oldies policy, but I won't start on that again here) only just realised it's :

    No fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it's dark

    Not

    No fun, no sin, no you-know-what when it's dark

    “An Ocean” sounds indistinguishable from “A Notion” in American English, so in a sense, you’re never wrong.

    I thought for ages that Shaft was the cat who won't come out when there's danger all about, which seemed sensible.

    And Superfly was a cartoon hero, like Danger Mouse.

    "No fun, no sin, no you" - maybe that's where Morrissey got the "no, no, no" idiot lyric for his last single?
