What's the funniest lyric you misheard?

Example: 

Stone Sour: through the glass

the lyric sounds like: 

An epidemic of Dominicans

Contaminating everything

But the actual lyric is: 

An epidemic of the mannequins

Contaminating everything

    So many I can't pinpoint one. What does misheard mean? I've heard of misunderstanding, but never misheard.

    Rashes racing, body bacon

    Picture me eating bacon

    N*ggas need love

    What it actually is:

    Rush is racing, body baking

    Picture me and you making

    Making sweet love

    'Rollicking time' - actually 'Mull of Kintyre'; - Paul McCartney.

    'Hey girl, tobogganing'  - actually  'Hey girl, don't bother me'.

    "Daddy, what's 'Saint Lankip time'?"    "I don't know, let's listen to the record again."  In the 'Little Drummer Boy' - "The ox and lamb kept time".

    line 

    'Cause that long cool woman had it all

    as 

    "That was no woman at all" 

    I also heard 

    "She had a hold of my right" 

    as a

    "Scuse me while I kiss this guy " instead of "Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky" the first time I heard Purple Haze. Apparently it's pretty common.

  • I always thought that Led Zeppelin's 'Immigrant Song' instead of saying 'Our only goal will be the Western Shore' was 'Our only goal will be to rest and shower'?!

    'Bang me in the chest' for Elton John's 'Bennie and the Jets'

    I also thought they said "I'm a n!gga" @1:30 for the longest time. I figured it was acceptable in circa '80 Australia.

    Hendix has the best known: " 'Scuse me while I kiss this guy." Mondegreens is the technical term for them... After the famous misheard term 'ly'd him on the green' misheard as Lady Mondegreen - from the song, "The Bonny Earl of Murray"

    Song "Sowing the Seeds of Love" by Tears for Fears

    Often misheard as "showing the zebra love".

    Song "She's Got Legs" by ZZ Top

    Lyric:  She's got legs, she knows how to use them

    Misheard as "she got laid, she knows how to use men".

    I actually heard these correctly.  I don't have any funny ones from what I have misheard.  These are ones that happened with friends of mine.  (many years ago....)
