The first few times you hear a song it can be difficult to correctly follow all of the lyrics and you can end up singing something completely random that makes no sense but that sounds like part of the song! Check out these 13 hilarious misheard lyrics!
Which of these misheard lyrics have you sung?!
- Taylor Swift Blank Space
“I’ve got a lot of Starbucks lovers…” the actual lyrics are “I’ve got a long list of ex-lovers” – personally I heard “I’ve got a lot of starcrossed lovers” (which kinda makes sense too!!)

- Beyoncé All The Single Ladies
The first time I heard this song I did not know the title of the song and heard “I want a cigarette” during the chorus opposed to “All the single ladies”!
- The Beatles Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
“The girl with colitis goes by“ you’ll be happy to know that the lyrics are in fact “The girl with kaleidoscope eyes” (FYI colitis is the inflammation of the lining of the colon…!).

- Elton John Tiny Dancer
“Hold me closer Tony Danza” is in fact “Hold me closer, tiny dancer” (which you’ll know if you know the name of the song ;))

- Hot Chocolate You Sexy Thing
“I remove umbilicals” because doctors are sexy, right? However the song actually goes “I believe in miracles”.

- Bryan Adams Summer of ’69
“I got my first real sex dream” you hear ’69 and you naturally think the song is an innuendo…you also hear “played it till my fingers bled”… and think ouch….! The real lyrics are “I got my first real six-string”.

- Pink Floyd Another Brick in the Wall
“We don’t need no sex vacation” I guess this is something to ask Freud about but a lot of our misheard lyrics involve sex… The actual lyrics are a lot cleaner… “We don’t need no education”.
- Lou Reed Perfect Day
“You’re gonna reach up for your soul” is what I have been always sung until I was corrected this year XD he actually sings “You’re gonna reap just what you sow”.

- Spice Girls 2 Become 1
“Wanna make love to your baby” another gross misheard lyric that I’m sure Freudian could examine deeply 😉 the real lyrics are “Wanna make love to ya baby”, makes a lot more sense!

- The Beatles I Want To Hold Your Hand
When Bob Dylan first met The Beatles, he told John Lennon he liked that song of theirs where they sing, “I get high, I get high”. Lennon, embarrassed, pointed out the line was in fact “I can’t hide, I can’t hide”.

- Red Hot Chili Peppers Zephyr Song
“Fly away on my sofa” like a magic carpet but comfortabler. The actual lyrics is as the title suggests “fly away on my zepher”. I did think up until recently that a zephyr was some sort of blimp – it is actually a gentle breeze….

- Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze
“Scuse me, while I kiss this guy” are not the actual lyrics! Jimi actually sings “scuse me while I kiss the sky”

- Cornershop Brimful of Asha
Firstly wtf does Brimful of Asha even mean? I have totally been singing “it’s a thrill to me that you’re only 45” instead of “it’s a brimful of asha on the 45” – considering the next line is “everybody needs a bosom for a pillow” I know whose lyrics make more sense 😉
