To help monk resist the spacebot takeover: misremembered/heard song lyrics

Post by melsbells » Tue Apr 25, 15:54 2017

Sometimes I mishear/remember lyrics, and they stick with me, even when I know they're wrong. Examples that come to mind follow.

Safety Dance:
You can dance if you want to.
You can leave your pants behind.
But if you wear pants and you refuse to dance
Than you ain't no friend of mine.
:pants:

Teenage Dirtbag:
I'm just a teenage nerdhead.

^That is all I remember of that song

Disney's Mulan training montage:
Peter Pan
We must be swift as coursing river
Peter Pan
With all the force of a great typhoon
Peter Pan
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon

^Here what actually goes through my head is "Peter Pan" followed by the meolody, but I didn't think that would be understood so I added the missing lyrics.

What are some lyrics you consistently mishear/remember?

Misheard
"Falling falling falling fallen.
Falling falling falling fallen."
Phoenix, "1901."

More later - I have to hear the song to remember them.

ETA:

Weather on the west streets
Silver over everything
The weather's all wet
You're all crone
You're all crone

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, "Heads Will Roll"
