    Re: Mis-heard Lyrics

    The two i can remember are

    Neil Diamond's 'Forever in Blue Jeans' as 'The Reverend Blue Jeans'

    and the Isrealists thingy as 'Misreliates'

    @Kylewilliamson I presume you were refering to "Israelites" by Desmond Decker!

    Re: Mis-heard Lyrics

    The old singer from a band I was in once came across misheard lyrics from people in the next room when they were rehearsing Jimi Hendrix's Voodoo Chile.

    The music fans told my mate how they loved that song with 'Kiss this guy' in it!! For the none Hendrix fans out there the line is 'Kiss the sky'.

    Not sure if this counts as misheard, or mis pronounced. :P

    Re: Mis-heard Lyrics

    One of the Radio 1 Djs ('bout 20 years ago) had a competition involving this idea. The on that sticks in my mind is;-

    My Cold Field, Carried Away By A Spoonlike Barrow.

    There was a shaggy dog story to go with it too!
