I always thought the following song was about Snoopy from the Peanuts cartoon and movies.


I literally found out a minute ago that's not the case. Clearly, I never really listened to the lyrics.

Quote:
Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on
Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on
Sloopy lives in a very bad part of town
And everybody there tries to put my Sloopy down
Sloopy I don't care what your daddy do
'Cause you know Sloopy girl I'm in love with you
And so I'm singing


What other songs have you been singing only to find you completely fudged the lyrics?

@tsarstepan,
There is a book out there called "A Maiden's Grave". That's what one character heard in the hymn "Amazing Grace".

I fondly remember Carly Simon singing You're So Vain and the line where she said: "I had some dreams there were clowns in my coffin clowns in my coffin" ir made no sense to me and it didn't make much more when I learned she actually said "clouds in my coffee"

On Elton John's Goodye Yellow Brick Road, I thought the first two lines were,
When are you going to come down
When are you going to laugh?

I thought is was song about trying to cheer somebody up using fantasy imagery. Then I read the lyrics and they are bitter as hell.

Of course there are the classics...

Jimi Hendrex: "S'cuse me, while I kiss this guy" (S'cuse me, while I kiss the sky)

and

Eltons's "Hold me closer, Tony Danza" (Hold me closer, tiny dancer).

The Stranglers' Five Minutes.

Five minutes and you're almost there
Five minutes and you're almost dead
Five minutes and you're almost there
Five minutes and you're almost dead


A friend of mine thought it was "Five minutes with your Uncle Fred."

I'll stay far far away from Uncle Fred. Just to be safe.
