Dave Barry's Bad Song Book has an entire chapter devoted to this phenomenon. The most infamous is The Lion Sleeps Tonight, where no one can agree what exactly the background singers are saying.

Like many others, I hear the line "the smell of fat chicks just put my spine out of place" in David Bowie's "Suffragette City."

Also in "Tumbling Dice" I always hear Mick Jagger singing "baby, am-scray..."

There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

I'll quote myself from Trevor's 2009 Mis-heard lyrics in songs Thread  Wink

Quote
Sheila E. - The Belle of St. Mark

"The woman that hurt him surely must have trouble sleeping"

I always understood:

"A woman that hurt him should have her head chopped off sleeping"

For years I thought those were quite brutal lyrics, for a rather innocent sounding dance-pop tune.

I recall Whoopi Goldberg trying to decipher the lyrics to “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” in the movie "Jumping Jack Flash" in order to determine some code key. Hilarious scene  BounceGiggle

The old song "Blinded By The Light" by Manfred Mann

When it goes, "revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night" it sounded like "dressed up like a douche, she go runnin' in the night."    BounceGiggle

Jack and Diane by John Cougar.  I always heard "Let the bottle bounce, come and save my soul" and wondered how a bouncing bottle could do that.  It's actually "let the Bible Belt come and save my soul".

There's a line in Jefferson Starship's "We Built This City" that goes
"Marconi plays the mambo, listen to the radio"
but I always hear it as
"Dave Foley plays La Bamba, whistlin' to the radio"

From Pantera's "Domination"...

Actual lyric: "Pushed into living Hell"

Misheard lyric: "Pushed into mini-vans"

...I swear, that is what it's always sounded like to me!

In "Summer of 69" by Bryan Adams I kept hearing the lyric "I got my first real sex dream".

The final refrain of The Kinks' "Lola" goes:
"Well I'm not the world's most masculine man/But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man (and so's Lola)"
but for years I thought it was "I know what I am in a bed, I'm a man (and so's Lola)"
I always thought people who were confused about that song's meaning were so stupid, but apparently it was just a lot more overt in my head....

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
