Hi! I just stumbled over an old thread about misheard lyrics and some links to pages full of – partly made-up – verses, some funny, some just bullshit.

Did you ever mess up some Queen lyrics? As English is not my native language I misheard lots of lyrics when I was young.

One Year Of Love: "Once in a mental moment in your arms"
Bicycle Race: "I don't want to be a Kennedy, be another Watergate"
Love of my Life: "Because you don't know, what is teen's tea" (I'm convinced that he really sings that!)
Who Wants To Live Forever: "I love my style"
We Will Rock You: "Buddy you're an old man, poor man, bleeding with your eyes, gonna make you some bitch some day"
Don't Stop Me Now: "Like in any bar, I'm gonna oh-oh-explode"

There may be some others, too, but at the moment I can't remember them.

I'd love to hear what lyrics you misheard, but please try to be honest. Don't post obviously made-up lyrics, we had that kind before.

Bye,
Nummer2

one year of love - one sentimental moment in your arms

who want to live forever - do you mean the 'when love must die' bit?

LOML - cos you don't know what it means to me

Some so-called misheard ones are made up just to sound funny, I guess. Of course it's just my opinion.

Example: "Grab your Russian hedgehog" That's too crazy! How could someone believe that's meant to be? I can easily go with "Russian" bit, but ...

i always think that the lyrics for '39 go

'in the year of '39 a simple year for volunteers' rather than 'assembled here'. i saw on a website someone else thought that too so i'm not the only one!

and the bit in 'another one bites the dust' where freddie says 'bite the dust yeah' i always think it's freddie declaring that he's adopted. it seriously sounds like 'i'm adopted'

Ha ha! I also thought that too with ANOBTD. I was listening to it for like, the 5th time, and I was like, "What is he saying? Adop-tay? What?!?"


I'm so pissed I could spit.

When i was small i always thought Freddie sang 'Sandy, Sandy' in stead of 'Save me, Save me'

Guess i was listening to the Grease soundtrack too much those days :p

Also, The show must go on- "I guess I’m learning, I must be woman now", instead of "I must be warmer now" :P

Here's one that I thought was in Breakthru's first verse.

"I wake up
Feel your smile
Your face
Fills my mind
I get religion crepe
'Cuz I look in to find"

instead of

"I wake up
Feel just fine
Your face
Fills my mind
I get religion quick
'Cos you're looking divine"


HE ROCKS US STILL.

One comes to my mind now:

Now I'm Here: "Down in the city just who calling me?" instead of "...Hoople and me".

i think it was originally 'cunt stains on my pillow' but they thought that was too much.
