This morning, I was talking with Don Morgan, and we got on the subject of lyrics that you've misheard in some of the classic rock songs that we play here on 99.1 The Whale. I thought I'd compile a list of my top 5 misheard lyrics from classic rock hits:

  • 1

    "Summer of 69" - Bryan Adams

    Must have been a good summer! What were you, 11? 12 years old?

    Wrong lyrics: "I got my first real sex dream..."

    Correct lyrics: "I got my first real six-string, bought it at the five-and-dime."

  • 2

    "Start Me Up" - Rolling Stones

    Well, at least I don't have to worry!

    Wrong lyrics: "In Yugoslavia... In Yugoslavia, you'll never starve..."

    Correct lyrics: "You could start me up... you could start me up, and never stop."

  • 3

    "Purple Haze" - Jimi Hendrix

    Pardon me, Mr. Hendrix. You're excused.

    Wrong lyrics: "Excuse me while I kiss this guy."

    Correct Lyrics: "Excuse me while I kiss the sky."

  • 4

    "Rock and Roll All Night" - Kiss

    Well, at least you're pacing yourself.

    Wrong lyrics: "I wanna rock and roll all night, and part of every day!"

    Correct lyrics: "I wanna rock and roll all night, and party every day!"

  • 5

    "Livin' On A Prayer" - Bon Jovi

    Sure, it doesn't matter, but it sometimes helps!

    Wrong lyrics: "It doesn't make a difference if we're naked or not."

    Correct lyrics: "It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not."

    ***BONUS***

    Wrong lyrics: "Take my ham, we'll makeout, I swear."

    Correct lyrics: "Take my hand, we'll make it, I swear."
