In Santigold's execllent Don't Blame Me:

Quote
Doh blame me a nuh my fault
Mek da bumpa yah look good inna mi tight shorts
Doh blame a nuh my fault
Mek yuh boyfriend si mi n a get wild thoughts
Doh blame me, mi seh doh blame me my girl
Easy like doh, ray, me, mi nuh kno weh yuh feel my girl
Yuh cheesy like

Definitely thought that was 'wide parts'. Semantically, not all that different really.

Regardless of what the official lyrics are, I will persist in my belief that Andrew Eldritch solemnly declares that there is "No time for ice-cream!" in the chorus of Sisters Of Mercy's No Time To Cry.

In Morrissey's 'Every Day Is Like Sunday' I was disappointed when I realised it wasn't "Hide on the Promenade, ate your postcard.''

Not really a mishearing but a misunderstanding but as a teenager when I first heard Sham 69's No Entry (a song about them being banned from America) I thought the line: "So what did you do to make them do this to you? I dunno boss, have a little puff on the grass?" was about a homosexual liaison rather than taking drugs.

They were simpler times in the late 70s. For me at least.

Just looked up the lyrics of 'Sugar' by System of a Down, and genuinely shocked and appalled to discover that he does not play Russian roulette with "a bullet called Clive".

After the thousandth time listening to Wasn't Born To Follow by The Byrds I've realised that she may argue with her logic, not her lodger.
