There's always one in a crowd. That person who just can't get the lyrics to the song right. And doesn't that make you crazy?! Some songs, more than others, have been consistently misheard over the years. Here are a few of my favorites!


Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze

  • Misheard line - "Scuse me while I kiss this guy"
  • Real Line - "Scuse me while I kiss the sky"

Traditional - We Wish You a Merry Christmas

  • Misheard Line - "Now bring us some friggin' pudding"
  • Real Line - "Now bring us some figgy pudding"

Elvis Presley - Hound Dog

  • Misheard Line - "You ain't never pornographic and you ain't no friend of mine"
  • Real Line - "You ain't never caught a rabbit and you ain't no friend of mine"

  • Misheard Line - "There's a bathroom on the right"

  • Real Line - "Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night"

Toto - Africa

And we have to finish off with a misheard country lyric....
