    The songs that sounded like something but when you read the lyrics you were wrong. I thought the song 'sweet nothing' by Calvin Harris and Florence Welch the lyric was "when your giving me sexy elephant" but the lyric is "giving me such sweet nothing". Also that Lukas Graham song '7 years' I thought he was saying "I only see mangoes" but he says " I only see my goals". 😂

    Bohemian Rhapsody (3:27) -



    What I heard - Spare him his life from his warm sausage tea.
    Actual lyric - "Spare him his life from this monstrosity"

    I mistook "bed all day, bed all day, bed all day" for "better day, better day, better day" and wondered what on earth was wrong with his pronunciation.

    My brother mistook "my enemy, my ally" for "my enemy, my Allah" in the same song. :rofl:

    Message in a Bottle by The Police - when he sings "a year has passed since I wrote my note", it really sounds like "a year has passed since I broke my nose".
