Sometimes the misheard song lyrics we do hear say a lot about usbut sometimes they don't.
1) on one of The Kid's video games, I heard the Matt and Kim song, "Daylight". That song has been out for a while and I've heard it several times and I sort of like it, it's bouncy and such, but I had no idea who sang it. So I googled what I thought was the first line of the song -
"We cut the legs off of our friends"
This is the line I've heard every time I've heard the song and I never once questioned it.
Turns out the actual line is:
"We cut the legs off of our pants"
When I finally figured that out, I was like "... oh" because it kind of made less sense.
2) Every single time I hear the stalker's national anthem "Every Breath You Take" by the Police, I hear-
"I'm a pool hall of apes"
when I should be hearing:
"how my poor heart aches"
And I never once questioned why Sting was talking about billiard-playing simians.
