Default Song lyrics you heard right but interpreted wrong? :/

In Diva by Beyonce, when she says,"No Passengers on my plane," I assumed she meant thar she and all of the Women she worked with were all Pilots metaphorically and none of them were passengers. Genius Lyrics said that "No Passengers on my plane," is referring to her having a private plane where she is the only one being flown.

In It's A Long Way To The Top(If You Wanna Rock And Roll) by AC/DC, Bon Scott says,"Getting stoned," I assumed he meant how Rockstars tend to be drug addicts. Genius Lyrics says that Bon Scott was referring to Rockstars getting stones thrown at them. When Bon Scott says,"One night stands," I assumed he was talking about how Rockstars tend to have sex with Groupies for one night and then leave. Genius Lyrics says Bon was talking about how Rockstars tend to do a one night concert and then leave.

I've always interpreted those lyrics the same way you did but Bon Scott mostly wrote tongue-in-cheek and double entendre style lyrics, so I can definitely see his clever humorous style on display there.
