“Just Let Me Staple The Vicar” AKA Misheard Song Lyrics

Misheard Song Lyrics

Quite often we hear a song and think the lyrics are something else than what they are. These days it’s much easier to check the lyrics but until the invention of Google how many times did you sing the wrong lyrics to your favourite song.

The comedian Peter Kay performs a really funny sketch with some classic examples…

Some of my own personal “misheard lyrics” include…

I thought Lady GaGa wanted “John Barrowman” and not “Bad Romance”…

I was convinced that Billy Idol’s backing singers were singing “Ronnie Corbett” and not “Mony, Mony”

Why on earth would Sia being singing “I’m A Severed Head” on “Reaper” – of course she isn’t, it’s actually “Imma Savour It”…

I used to sing “Fee Do Woah Oah” instead of “Feed The World” to Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas”

At the start of “Want To Want Me” by Jason Derulo I though he was saying he had the “shits on the floor” as opposed to the “sheets on the floor”…

Who knew Spagna loved “corned beef”?

Why is Sia singing about chicken wings on Broken Glass?

What would be the reason that Christina Perri keeps a “jar o farts”?

Alex from Finding Montauk thinks the song “Blinded By The Light” contains the line “…wrapped up like a douche…”

Suzie used to think Pat Benatar was asking someone to “hit me with your pet shark”

Kimmy says this about a Grease song…”As a teen (Listening to the Grease soundtrack) I could have sworn Stockard Channing was singing ** There are worse thing I could do…finger with a boy or two** Where actually she was singing… **than go with a boy or two**. It was YEARS before I was put straight, and still to this day have to check myself if I sing along to it… force of habit … *hangs head*o_O

Helen Bushe thinks the Beatles were singing “Paint The Bag Brighter”…

  1. I can’t believe I’m going to admit this… am I going to… *hold on*… thinks about it……………………………………………

    Okay… don’t judge me…

  2. What immediately comes to my mind, partly because of a video I watched this week, is the song Purple People Eater. For years and years, I thought the line was “one-eyed, one-horned, PIED purple people eater” instead of “flying people eater.” I never could figure out what pied meant. 🙂

  3. OH MY GOD I’m not the only one hearing chicken wings xD Sia’s articulation is infamous for a reason. I mean listen to ‘I am to get her to me’ at the end of the second verse, I’d never have guessed that’s what she was saying if I didn’t look up the lyrics.

  4. This post gave me such a giggle!
    I still, and always will, sing, “And I’ll be the brass around your finger.” (No idea why.)
    Gems from my husband’s family (some of whom are a little hard of hearing, others who just engage mouth before engaging brain):
    “My memory has just been sold. My angel is a telephone.” (J Geils Band, “Centerfold”)
    “Our shadows longer than a**holes.” (Led Zepplin, “Stairway to Heaven”)
    “Hooked on the ceiling.” (Blue Swede, “Hooked on a Feeling”)
