i know that there are several sites around that have this but here is one for the record books~
http://www.kissthisguy.com/

my favorite all time misheard lyric is from my little brother.

we're driving; listening to Eric Clapton - "Don't give me No Alibies" Eric is singing.

i hear willy (the brother) in the back seat - singing at the top of his lungs, quite sincerely: " I LOVE PIES!!"....

had to pull over was laughing so hard.

Here's a question I bet nobody has asked before:

In "Done Somebody Wrong," does Gregg sing "The bell has tolled..." OR "The barrelhouse told me..."??????

These are always classic . . . Elton John . . . electric boobs . . . hold me closer, Tony Danza, . . . etc.

Back in the very early 90's . . . remember Great White (of course you do, they were in the news recently), "na na na once bitten, twice shy?"

Well, I'm driving along, with my toddler strapped in his carseat in back, and I hear, "nah-nah-nah, he bite me two times!"

You are pretty funny, EJ.....

To answer your question....who knows. I say he is saying the bell has tolled. But alot of folks on the list seem to think it is bellhouse told me. Someone ask Gregg the next time they talk to him, ok?

On Sunday, aiq and I were driving back from the Orioles game listening to "The Fillmore Concerts"...when that song came on I was reminded of that monster debate that erupted on the "misheard ABB lyrics" thread a few months back. On that particular version of the song, Gregg is definitely singing "The bell has tolled..."

And that is the final word on the matter. IMHO, of course.

Linnie, I had a "'Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy" calendar last year...a different misheard lyric for every day of the year.

John Prine wrote "that's the way the world goes round/ you're up one day/the next your down/ it's a half an inch of water, and you think you're gonna drown/that's the way the world goes round.

but a girl in his audience once requested the song about the happy enchilada....
john replied that he didn't think he'd ever written a song about any kind of enchilada
she replied, "you know its a happy enchilada, and you think you're gonna drown....
john said "i'm glad you like the words."

My friend admitted to me that for years (hopefully when she was a kid) she thought Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves was seals, seals, brown eyed seals.

"Once Bitten Twice Shy" is an Ian Hunter song butcherd by Great White. Please
don't remind me.

Julie Miller (country singer, song writer) once told Bob Dylan: "You should try to enunciate , your
words are very good"

Hee hee. A few fun ones that I've misheard:

Smashing Pumpkins, "Disarm"
Real - "Inside of me and such a part of you"
I heard - "Sodomy is such a part of you"

Tori Amos, "Mother":
Real - "and I cross my legs, oh my God"
I heard - "and I cross my legs o'er my c*nt" (it totally would've been like her to sing that, too )

A few years back, there was a song on the radio by the group, Live. I know what the words were, but it almost sounded like, "Our love is like Walter".

There are two songs that I still wonder just what the lyrics are. One is that "Long, Cool Woman" song by the Hollies. I just can't decipher exactly what's going on in that one.

Another one that gives me fits is the end theme music to the television show, "WKRP in Cincinnati". The opening theme is easy to understand, but I've listened to the closing in every condition that I can be in and I've never been able to decode it.

Okay, I'm at work right now and I just read this and I'm crying, I'm laughing so hard. I think my co-workers think I've finally lost it... Again.

Anyway, my wife used to think that the main line in the song "I'm Alright" by Kenny Loggins (you know the CADDYSHACK song) was "Ham on Rye". Which I was thought was pretty funny.

Lyrics to WKRP Closing Theme

Curiosity got the best of me, so I did an extensive internet search (5 minutes) to locate the lyrics to the closing theme to WKRP in Cincinnati. At this site (http://members.allstream.net/~jacjud/wkrpfaq.html) I found THIS information:

Q. What are the lyrics to the closing theme?
A. There are no lyrics. None. It's all just gibberish and nonsense words. Here's a fuller explanation, taken from Michael Kassel's "America's Favorite Radio Station" site:
Ever wonder what the words are to the closing theme of WKRP? Before you get excited about finding those long lost lyrics, the actual answer is -- there are none! Tom Chehak, a first season writer who was present at the Atlanta recording session of the theme, recalls how Tom Welles, theme writer, suggested to Chehak and Hugh Wilson a closing theme for the song. According to Chehak, the singer just started blarring out a bunch of nonsense words; if any of them were actual words, they're lost to history. Indeed, Chehak recalls how great they all thought it would be to leave fans guessing forever -- looks like they got their wish.


Can you believe this? There were no lyrics!!! When I think of all the ways that I abused myself for all of those years trying to make sense of it all ... Is there a lawyer on the forum?

My favorite lyric from that Kiss this Guy is a screwup from "Onward Christian Soldiers." 'Christ the royal master leads against the foe' turned into 'Christ the royal bastard leans against the phone.'

Also, a lot of people seem to think "Secret Agent Man" is really "Secret Asian Man."
