They do say that, don't they?? At least in part of the song

Not really funny...but I didn't know where else to put this. Just looked up the lyrics to "Cuando caliente el sol", which being in another language, I guess it's easy to screw up the lyrics a little.

I though the lyric went "que me promezco" which would mean "that I promise myself" [or that was my guess] and I see it's "me entremezco" which apparently means "I tremble". That's a lot different from what I thought. The other one, same song, is at least synonymous, and doesn't really change the meaning. Vibrar vs. temblar.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned Yellow Ledbetter. Talk about an indecipherable song.

YouTube - Pearl Jam - Yellow Ledbetter

The theme song of the TV series "Golden Girls" sounds to me like this:

"And if you gave a party
Invited everyone you knew,
You would find the biggest gift would be from me
And the heart attack* would say
Thank you for being a friend."

Better Man from Pearl Jam. Sounded like "Can't find the butter, man" instead of "Can't find a better man"...

Garth Brooks "Shameless".

My dad let me believe that the words were "I'm Shavin" for about 10 years until someone finally informed me that he's singing "I'm shameless".

It was pitiful. I had the shaving motion going on and everything lol

*mind you I was 2 when I first misinterpreted the song*

Instead of "smoke on the water, fire in your eye"

Slow Motion Walter, Fire Engine Guy.

Whenever my dh and I encounter a really, really slow person (which in Branson is common) we call him Slow Motion Walter.

My dh always thought that Neil Diamond was singing "A reverend in blue jeans".

Waterfalls by TLC

My younger brother (18 yrs old now) still sings "Go Go Jason Waterfall" instead of "Don't go chasin waterfalls"

We all enjoy the laughs too much to tell him he's singing it wrong.

For years I thought Jim Croce sang the line "like the singing bird and the broken toe" in his song "I've Got a Name" (it is actually the croaking toad)!

God bless.
