    Ever hear a song and a certain line raises the question "Did they just sing what I thought they sang?"


    I used to think Otis Redding in "Dock of the Bay" was singing: Sitting on the top of a bed watching a tire roll away." The real lyrics were "Sittin on the dock of the bay watching a tide roll away."

    I think this thread concept has been done before, but what the heck.

    When Freda Payne sang Band Of Gold when I was a kid I was sure she was saying pantyhose. At age 11 I was not quite sure why someone would leave their pantyhose behind but I thought I had an idea.

    "Since you've been gone
    All that's left is your panty hose
    All that's left of the dream I hold
    Is your panty hose"

    "There's a bad moon on the rise" = "There's a bathroom on the right".....no kidding that is what I though they said!

    On Fogerty's Premonition album, that is what he sings as a joking reference to the misheard lyric.

    Jimi Hendrix. Purple Haze. "'scuse me while I kiss this guy."

    I used to think Jimi swung both ways.

    Probably one of the most difficult song lyrics to understand. Elton John has a few frequently mis-sung songs.
