"Shrekked up like a douche into the roder in the night" is actually "Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night" (Manfred Mann, Blinded By The Light)

and

"Lock the cashbox! Lock the cashbox!" or
"F*ck the cat's buh! F*ck the cat's buh!" is actually "Rock the casbah" (The Clash)

I had that as 'a fusion of a runner in a night'

Took me years to fully figure out what they said in Scar Tissue (by the Chillies). I figured it was about birds, but until I was about 14 I'd just sing it like a long sound, instead of with words.

Quote:
Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you ’cause
With the birds I’ll share
With the birds I’ll share
This lonely view
With the birds I’ll share
This lonely view
For me it was always "With the birds nah nah du duh duuuuh"

from battles' song atlas-
"people will eat people with medieval standards"
but it's actually
"people won't be people when they hear this sound"
WTF was i thinking?

I've had the lyrics to Loser by Beck wrong for years.

I thought it was:
"someone get the door
i'm a loser baby
so why don't you kill me"

but it's actually
"soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby
so why don't you kill me"

And "soy un perdedor" actually translates to "I am a loser" from Spanish.

had a boss once who thought Elton John was singing "hold me closer Tony Danza"

and an aunt who mistook "big old jet airliner" for "big old Jan had a light out"

i have no idea how or why, there must have been something wrong with my hearing at the time but i heard:
"i've got a big fat bucket, Mona Bick"
instead of
"i've got a big fat ****ing bone to pick"

in radio by alkaline trio.

This may have been said, but I thought that "Blinded by the Light" was.

"Blinded by the light rolled up like a douche"

instead of...

"Blinded by the light revved up like a deuce"
