misheard song lyrics: part two

I've had a lot of moments where I discovered that the songs I've been singing for years have been sung incorrectly. It can be a game changer, or an embarrassment, depending on how you look at it. You can check out my part one here: misheard song lyrics.

Hey Man, Nice Shot by Filter
MY LYRIC: that's when I said hey man nation
ACTUAL LYRIC: that's why I say hey man, nice shot

Not sure how I could have missed this one since the title of the song is the misheard lyric, but yup, hey man nation.

Long Way Down by Goo Goo Dolls
MY LYRIC: when you take me, I'm not there, all those children, but I'll never be the same
ACTUAL LYRIC: when you take me, I'm not there, almost human, but I'll never be the same

Children? I don't know. Apparently it made sense to middle school me.

Push It by Salt N Pepa
MY LYRIC: ah squash it
ACTUAL LYRIC: ah, push it ah, push it, oooh, baby, baby

My friends laugh at me for this one, but I'm convinced that I hear squash it every other time on this track. I will take this one to the grave, haha.

Stronger by Britney Spears
MY LYRIC: I've had enough, I'm not your property I've sprung too late, baaybayyy
ACTUAL LYRIC: I've had enough, I'm not your property as from today, baby

One of my favorite Britney songs, but understanding her appears to be a bit difficult for me.

Disarm by Smashing Pumpkins
MY LYRIC: cut that little child, sodomy, and such a part of you
ACTUAL LYRIC: cut that little child, inside of me and such a part of you

This is the reason that the Smashing Pumpkins scared me for a little while when I was younger. I thought hmm this was a dark song, like really dark. Perfect example of how one misheard word could change the entire tone of a song.

What are some of your misheard song lyrics?

  1. DJ Mustard - any song he produces he goes "Mustard on the Beat, ho!" I thought he said busted on the beat, yo!
