There’s nothing like that moment when you hear your boss, your best friend, or even your 5-year-old daughter mixing up the words to their favorite song as they sing along. Last year, we posted our 10 Funniest Misheard Song Lyrics, submitted by friends, family and MyMusicCloud members. Among them were some great examples, like this one from reader Stephanie:
“For ‘Benny & The Jets,’ I always thought it was (and continue to sing), ‘She’s got electric boobs! Down to her shoes, you know I heard, and I’m about to sayeeeeee-oh-oh.’”
Reader Eeyoraus Earthmuffin (probably not his real name) said, “My 4-year-old grandson sings, I got the moves like dragons.”
But really, who can blame them? How many 4-year-olds are familiar with The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger (“Moves Like Jagger”)? Misunderstanding popular song lyrics happens to the best of us. In fact, one of the most commonly mangled verses is from Elton John’s “Benny & the Jets,” which really goes: “She’s got electric boots, a mohair suit, you know I read it in a magaaazine.”
So once again, we’re asking MyMusicCloud members to send us your funniest misheard lyrics. Because we’re staging another bad music lyric intervention.

All that and you can store, play, and pause your music across almost any device.
