Misheard lyrics

Did it every happen to you that you misunderstood the lyrics of a song? It's quite usual phenomenon with metal or hard rock tracks, where singers scream, mumble or moan to the microphone. For some songs it's even hard to figure out which language they sing in. However it can also happen with totally random songs. Like Status Quo's "In the army now". For some weird reason I thought they were singing "oooooooooooh you're in Miami now" when they actually sung "Oh, oh, you're in the army now". I know it makes no sense at all, but I guess senses sometimes play tricks with our brains (or is it the other way around).

Anyway, funniest misheard lyrics I heard came from my friends. Instead of Relight my fire they heard "We like Papaya". Untill I recently discovered Misheard lyrics. Plenty of fun guaranteed. I chose only few pearls and leave you to discover some more...
