I think this is misheard, it just can't be right: one of those ubiquitous sofa ads starts: "I want a brand new house on an episode of Friends..."
Please can someone tell me what it really says?  :-[
It's a bit weird, but actually quite wonderful.

It's an episode of Cribs, not Friends. I you don't already know what Cribs is, you probably don't want to!

One that I misheard was Feeling Good by Muse:

da, thank you so much. I just googled Cribs. You're dead right, I really don't want to know. Friends is bad enough.  ::-)   :D

Not exactly misheard, but my father convinced me these were the correct words to Handel's "Zadok the Priest"

Zadok got pissed
and weed on the carpet
and we do a song about it,

"Just an Earth-bound biscuit I."

This prompted me to check as I was sure it was:-

"Just an earth-bound distant cry."

Of course, neither are right :)
"Yes please" said Squirrel "biscuits are our favourite things."

The classic happy clappy ditty:

"Dance, then, wherever you may be/I am the Lord of the damn settee".

ISTR misheard lyrics are termed "Mondagreens", after the gracious Lady Mondagreen:

Who is mentioned somewhere here:
"Ye hielands and ye lowlands,
Oh whaur ha'e ye been,
They ha'e slain the Earl o' Moray
An' laid him on the green...."
It's a bit weird, but actually quite wonderful.

A few years ago The Grauniad had a regular piece on misheard lyrics, called "Come
Again?"

My favourite: Tonight I sellotape my glove for you.  :-*

Following on from Mr L's one, for years I thought there was a line that went:

Warm smell of Policemen, rising up through the air
