Did you know that in Pearl Jam’s grunge song, “Daughter,” Eddie Vedder’s really singing, Don’t call me daughter, Not fit to, and not, Don’t call me daughter, Geppetto ? Or that AC/DC’s song really goes, Dirty Deeds, Done Dirt Cheap? And not Dirty Jeans, Dungarees!?
If you’ve ever goofed up the words to songs like those, we at MyMusicCloud salute you. April Fool’s Day is just over a week away, and to celebrate, we’re asking readers like you to submit another round of Funny Misheard Lyrics.
In our last roundup, listener Lisa heard Rihanna sing, ’Cause I may be fat, but I’m perfectly good at it… when in fact, the words to “S&M” are: ‘Cause I may be bad, but I’m perfectly good at it…
Amanda was sure that Fun. was singing, Some nights I stay up cussin’ in my bathtub, when they were really singing, Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck in “Some Nights.”
And Stephanie swore that: “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 say-eee-oh-oh.’ ” (Sorry, Stephanie, but the words to Elton John’s song are actually: She’s got electric boots, a mohair suit, you know I read it in a magaaazine.)
