Fleetwood Mac's 'white winged dove' I thought it was one-winged dove and all I could imagine was a poor dove going around in circles. My daughter and her friend (Yes, it took someone else...many years later) laughed when I was singing it with the radio.

He CAN'T be saying that, but I still don't know what the heck he was really saying.
Terrible song! lol
I thought it was 'dressed up like a douche, another runner in the night.'

My fifteen year old daughter and I were laughing hysterically over that song last night. My husband was in the room and I asked him to listen to it. He did and promptly said "He's calling someone a douche". We laughed some more.

I love the eighties hair bands. "Round and Round" by Ratt has a line in it that I always thought said "Taco Bell and (something) sells" I could never quite figure out why a band like that would sing about Taco Bell. It was not until recently that I found the correct lyric. It goes "Tightened our belts abused ourselves".

Well, there are a couple more I haven't yet seen posted, so here goes:

Dwight Yoakam (A Thousand Miles From Nowhere):

"I've got pickles in my head"


Kenny Rogers (Lucille):

"Four Hundred children and a crop in the field"

There were some other funny lyrics that went with that song, but I never misunderstood them in the original version. Here they are anyway:

"In a bar in Toledo, across from the depot, on a barstool she took off her dress...
I thought I'd get closer, so I walked on over, and asked her to take off the rest."

"You picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel, four hundred children and a crop in the field.
I've had some bad times, lived through some sad times, but this time the herpes won't heal."

Intentionally misunderstood lyrics of that song by the Meat Puppets:

"Four ugly children and a crotch that won't heal..."

I'd never heard it that way! It's funny what can be done to song lyrics, to the point that guys like Weird Al can make an excellent living from it.

It wasn't my mess up, but I remember reading where Bob Dylan thought the words "I get by" from a Little Help From My Friends by the Beatles was "I get high."
