KARACHI: Have you ever been jamming out to your favorite song to get a rude awakening that you’ve gotten the lyrics all wrong? Chances are, you’re not the only one. Here are some of the most hilariously misheard lyrics of all times.
1. ‘We Will Rock You’ – Queen
‘We Will Rock You’ by Queen is a song that will live through the ages. The rock anthem’s lyrics are pretty straightforward or so we thought. Turns out there’s one lyric that had a lot of people confused about.
Heard: Kicking your cat all over the place.
Actual lyric: Kicking your can all over the place.
2. ‘Thank u, next’ – Ariana Grande
Okay to be fair, Ariana Grande doesn’t have the best enunciation. In fact she’s the queen of mumbling so this misheard lyric gets a pass.
Heard: Bacon, eggs.
Actual lyric: Thank u, next.
3. ‘Good For You’ – Selena Gomez
Even if you hadn’t misheard this lyric you won’t be able to listen to the song without the new and completely incorrect lyric!
Heard: I’m farting carrots.
Actual lyric: I’m on my 14 karat.
4. ‘Hotel California’ – The Eagles
Hotel California is an eerie song and there have been so many theories regarding what the song is about. The most popular being it’s about the Church of Satan. So people just went with the wrong lyric altogether.
Heard: What a nice surprise when your rabbi dies.
Actual lyric: What a nice surprise bring your alibi.
5. ‘Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan‘ – Roy (movie)
The song is about a lady with fair-colored wrists who is asking a guy to buy her things. In retrospect, she might have taken it a bit too far with this misheard lyric.
Heard: Creek Vista paaiyan ve.
Actual lyric: Manjaa ve romantic picture dikha de requestan paaiyan ve.
6. ‘Tera Honay Laga Hoon’ – Atif Aslam
There are so many versions of misheard lyrics of this song that it’s hard to choose just one. It seems as though no one knows or wants to know what the actual lyrics are!
Heard : Shining in the shedding sun like fair and lovely lotion come on feel me.
Actual: Shining in the setting sun like a pearl upon the ocean, come and feel me.
