In Alan Jackson's "That'd be Alright", it says "If everybody everywhere had a lighter load to bare." I thought it said "if everybody everywhere had a lion or a bear." I spent at least an hour trying to figure out why people needed animals like that to make everything okay.
My friend Emily thought that Tracy Chapman said "Only smoking hashish" instead of "Only smoke and ashes."
My friend Nicole is the queen of misheard lyrics.
--Her take on the first couple lines of the "Saved by the Bell" Themes Song: "When I wake up in the morning and my pants are feeling funny, then I know I'm gonna make it alright." It really says "When I wake up in the morning and my alarm gives out a warning, I don't think I'm gonna make it on time."
--"Hard to Handle" by the Black Crowes: It really saids "Let me light your candle b/c a-momma I'm sho' hard hard to handle now." She heard "Hey little thing, lemon-lime ch-chemical."
She's always good for hours of laughs. That's why we love her!
