"What does he mean by that?"

I mean, do you ever have those things in life when you hear something, usually in a song but not necessarily, and you hear it wrong or make a change out of it to make a joke because the word sounds similar to something else and from that point forward you will never hear it the same again?

Example: Whenever I hear the song "Freefallin'" by Tom Petty, I can't hear it as anything but "Freeballin." It's so bad that I can even try my hardest to hear it as it's intended, but it still sounds like "freeballin.'"

Here's a more recent one: Anybody who has pre-school age kids can probably relate to this one. Nick Jr. has this character that comes on between shows called Moose A. Moose who sings songs or does a matching game or teaches a lesson or something like that. Every month there is a theme and an accompanying song for that month. April will have a song about Spring, October a song about Halloween, etc. As a parent, you will hear the song at least 2 dozen times throughout the month. Last month was some song about animal friends called "Critter Comrades." The last line of the chorus goes:

"Feathers, fins, or fur, when you're feeling bad
Nothing cheers you up like a critter comrade."

The first time I hear the song my wife said "doesn't it sound like he's saying 'nothing cheers you up like a critter gone bad?'"

All February long I couldn't hear it any other way, then of course every time I hear it I picture a sad person being cheered up by a crazy dog tearing up the house.

Ah, parenthood can drive you a little nuts sometimes.

Anybody know what the hell I'm talking about?

Gypsies, tramps, and thieves!
The people of the town
That's what they'd call us!
Gypsies, tramps, and thieves!
But every night the men would come around,
And lay the money down.


What I heard:

Gypsy chimpanzees!
The people of the town
That's what they'd call us!
Gypsy chimpanzees!
But every night the men would come around,
And lay the monkey down.


I like my version better.  Thumbup

Nick Jr is drilled through my house with three kids.  I know of the Moose you speak of.  Anyhow, the NiHao Ki-lan (sp?) they have the mini song they sing when a problem comes up.

When there is a problem and you don't know what to do
First you say you're sorry and help to fix it too


I however sing the last line...
"Sit down on the toilet and take a poop..."

I'm proud to say my 5 year old sings it like that now. 

We had a thread somewhere on here about misheard song lyrics or song lyrics you make up.  I do that all the time.  The part of "All Apologies" towards the end where they sing "All in all is all we are..." I always sign "Alan Alda is a whore..."

I never even knew what was being said in the first place. News to me. I always imagined it said "Oh no, an Oreo."

Now I know what it really says. Thanks.  Cheers

In the song "This is Halloween" from "The Nightmare Before Christmas".

One verse is "Round that corner bend, hiding the trash can."

But what I heard was "Round that corner, man. Hiding in the trash can." I thought they were saying "Man" instead of "Bend" as if they were addressing the viewer as "Man". Don't know how that came to be.

Also in some video games you can't hear what somebody is saying. Like in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 I can't hear Albert Wesker's quote when he uses his Super Combo due to too much noise.

"Watch what you say... You're worth nothing to me!"
or is it...
"Whatever you say... Is worth nothing to me!"

I can't really tell.

I used to call it "boob ballin'", which is slang for cleavage sex.  TeddyR

My littlest daughter got a totally annoying (is there any other kind?) talking Elmo doll last Christmas.

It often will yell "yippie ki yi yay!" when you jiggle it.

My mild-mannered wife, a friend, AND I each independently admitted that we cannot help but mentally complete the line from Die Hard when we hear it.  (Each of us thought of this before telling the others about it.)  BounceGiggle

("Yippie ki yi yay, MF!")

Oh man, my son had a talking Elmo (not the same one you have as it never said "yippee ki yay") and that thing drove me nuts. It was the only thing that would calm him down when he was extremely upset between 18 months about about 2 1/2 years. I'm so glad he's past that phase and on to playing with cars.

BAD NEWS BEARS (original)

In the scene where Amanda is playing air hockey against Kelly Leak, Kelly asks Amanda what he gets if he wins.  She replies, "Name it."  For years, I thought she said, "Lay me."
