Thread: Lyrics you always mis-heard but didn't know it

  1. #1

    Default Lyrics you always mis-heard but didn't know it

    I think there were loads as a kid, probably because am radios were so rubbish.

    One which I still sing wrong, even though I know about it, is Hot Chocolate's "I believe in miracles", which I always sing as "I believe in Milko", and I always say it when I see the last remaining milk float in our area coming up the road.

    I must have misheard it as a kid and it kind of stuck.

    I am sure I can think of many more, but while I do, please let me know some of yours.

    ....another one....Don't bring me down, Bruce, don't bring me down......
    apparently, ELO would sing 'Bruce' for a laugh at their gigs because that's what the audience thought they were singing. So it was incorporated into the song. I don't know what the real lyric is, however.

    Has to be When the Going Get Stuffed which should have been When the Going Gets Tough by Queen if I remember rightly

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.
