    Twisted lyrics

    There might be a thread somewhere on misheard song lyrics already, but anyway..........................

    There's some very well known ones out there, but today I heard one that I've never heard mentioned before. A bloke said that when he was young he misheard the line "Maybe someday your name will be in lights" from Johnny B Goode as "Maybe some day your name will be in Leipzig."

    I always hear "manure in the clouds" instead of "the view above the clouds" from elo-above the clouds.

    I've always heard Powderfingers "My happiness" as "My half penis".

    For years I thought that Alanis Morissette was singing about a "death throe hard-on" in Ironic.

    Which I still think is a much better line than the more prosaic but actual "death row pardon".
