Misheard Lyrics #200wordchallenge

Earworm Alert. Once you hear some of these, you can’t unhear them. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Rolling Stones – Beast of Burden. I Can Suck It Up sounds like Suck A Duck.

Judas Priest – Breaking The Law sounds like Raking The Lawn.

Our Lady Peace – Heavyweight. Building Fires By Their Homes sounds like Building Fires By Their Balls.

The Offspring – Coming For You. Don’t Get Caught sounds like Donkey Kong. In fact, most of the searches on the internet list Donkey Kong as the lyric.

The Who – Bargain. I’d Gladly Lose Me To Find You sounds like I’d Gladly Eat Moose Meat To Find You.

AC/DC – Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap sounds like Thunder Chief. That is the oldest one in my collection. I first heard this in grade school back in the day.

Yes – Roundabout. Mountains Come Out Of The Sky sounds like Mullets Come Out Of The Sky. I wonder if that means the fish, or the hairstyle.

Van Halen – Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love sounds like Eat Turkey For Lunch.

Drowning Pool – Bodies. Let The Bodies Hit The Floor sounds like Let The Bunnies Hit The Floor.

  1. These are great. Gotta love how our minds (and ears) work. My Van Halen misheard lyric comes from “Runnin’ With The Devil.” I heard “I’ve got no love, no love you’d call real” and “I’ve got no love, no love in Korea.” I was in junior high school (aka middle school) at the time and my Korean classmates enjoyed that one.

  2. I will be singing Raking the lawn from now on!
    In Lake Fever, I always heard “don’t want a little VCR part” (instead of little piece of your heart) – there was a seinfeld where a video store employee gave Elaine the play button from his VCR, I just assumed it was a reference to that sort of ill-advised romantic gesture!

    • Whatever floats your boat is fine by me. Ohhh. The misheard lyrics. Got it. 😉

      I did not know there was a word for it. Cool.

      That Hendrix one is possibly the most famous one. There is a DJ near here that does a regular segment in which she mentions different misheard lyrics, and it is named after the line you just mentioned.
