You mean like, "Then I saw her face - now I'm a believer" should really have been, "Then I saw her face - now I'm gonna leave her"?

Hendrix's "Excuse me while I kiss the sky"

Should be "Excuse me while I kiss this guy"

Oh. that's a misheard lyric - is that what you mean?

Hi Alistair 

I didn't mind the original too much, but the twist is funny

 

Hi kuya

Poor Bolton doesn't anyone like him?

 

Howdy Paul

Thats a misheard lyric alright

but do you prefer it to the proper one?

 

I'm not too keen on - In this crazy world in which we live in,

From live and let die, but im not to sure on a replacement lyric

All the best

I always laugh when I hear the alternate lyrics to Lucille by Kenny Rogers.  

 

You Picked a fine time to give me VD

Wedding’s next Thursday

and I can’t even pee

 

instead of

 

you picked a fine time to leave me lucille

4 hungry children

and a crop in the field

Should have a field day with this topic as the songs come to mind.  I don't know if I would call this topic "annoying lyrics".  Nothing annoys me about any of the others mentioned thus far.  Anyone offended or annoyed by this below?  :P 

Not me. Hee Hee

First up: Do ya wanna funk -    Always sounded and translated (in this dirty mind) as...... Do ya wanna FUCK    :lol:   

 

I'm sure that's what he meant as things were still loosening up back in the early eighties I suppose. 

 

So if I could change the title and word funk to fuck I'd do it in this song.  Hmmm.  Yeah, maybe it does annoy me that my idea wasn't used originally, though I am sure for many it translates the same way.  Perhaps funk was the clean way to say it in certain circles.

The 2nd half of verse 2 of Ten Years After's "I'd Love to Change World" always annoyed me:

Life is funny, skies are sunny
Bees make honey, who needs money, Monopoly

 

After Alvin Lee's death, I read that the record company had made him change the lyrics from whatever they had been - and that's why he never played the song live.

The Lovehammer's Trees  is a song I really like but the last line of the chorus always bugged me. I guess I tire of love songs that have to add that doomed relationship element. Why can't a good love song just be that a good love song?

 

It'll be you and me
Up in the trees
And the forest will give us the answer
It'll be you and I
Up in the sky
It's a combination for disaster  

 

when I sing along I change the words to

It's the combination I am after

Okay, anything the BeeGees wrote after "Jive Talkin". I draw the line after that song.
