I actually copied that one from a FB friend who said her 11 year old son came up with it. No pressure on your kid, though. ;)

Tense supper at the Van Hagar house tonight. "Come on! Be funny! BE. FUNNY."
Endut! Hoch Hech!

I'm watching an AC/DC doc and just found out that the first line of Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution is "heavy decibels are playing on my guitar", which for 38 years I've thought was "help me, there's a peasant playing on my guitar."

Another amusing (for Limeys) misheard lyric I heard recently was a workmate singing "I'm all Adam Faith" instead of "I'm all outta faith" to Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn."
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Hey, here's an apposite passage from my Middle Egyptian textbook:

Oh many but for now, just off the top of my head

Smithers-Jones - The Jam
Actual: The clock on the wall hasn't yet struck 9
Misheard: The clock on the wall has an extra 9
Assumed it meant something I couldn't comprehend. I always assumed it meant something clever and when I finally realised it was wrong it was one of those, "oh yeah, that makes sense" moments.
Looking back on this thread and I've just remembered a line I misheard for a while in this song...

"You're the same as him, you like tits and knees"

Actual line is "you're the same as him, you like tinned sardines"

Wire's "Map Ref" has this bit: "Lines of longitude and latitude / Define and refine my altitude." And I know those are the correct words. But in my head, I always change them to "Lines of longitude and lassitude / Define and refine my attitude."
Endut! Hoch Hech!
