Send Us Your Funniest Misheard Song Lyrics

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. With our amazing cloud-based music delivery service, you’ll never belt out a bogus chorus again. (No more: He doesn’t look a thing like Cheese Nips). Just hit the “lyrics” button in our free browser or app and it fetches the correct words to that Killers’ song (He doesn’t look a thing like Jesus) for you instantly. All that and you can store, play, and pause your music across almost any device.

So tell us your funniest misheard lyrics in the comments section below and we’ll print them in an upcoming post. To see more hilarious examples, read the original post here.

  1. A friend of mine always used to misquote Steely Dan’s “Hey Nineteen” — instead of “The Cuervo Gold/The fine Colombian/Make tonight a wonderful thing,” she would sing, “The Queer Won’t Go/To Find Colombia/Make Tonight a Wonderful Day”

  2. I always thought that song It’s a Mistake was It’s Summer’s Dayyyy. Until a buddy set me straight. What a screwup!

  3. Heard this one recently. Travolta and OL John, not sure of the title myself but think it’s “You’re the one that I want.” Misheard is I’ve got shoes, they’re made of plywood.
