Apparently it's

"The taste of her cherry chap stick"

and not

"The taste of her cherry chop stick"


I thought it was chop stick until quite recently as well. Seems to be one lots of people mis-hear!  :)

I must've been 20 years before I realised that Desmond Dekker's biggest UK hit wasn't actually  called "Misery Nights"

I am quite disappointed to learn it's not 'Cherry Chopstick' as I thought it may be a euphemism for something rather ahem, cough, down boy, ..exotic.

Mrs Z thought ABBA's "Super Trouper" went

Quote
I was sick and tired of everything, when I called you last night from Tesco

It's actually "Glasgow", which is, in many ways, more odd.
Never tell me the odds.

On an Abba theme (and before MiniQ gets here with this..) I thought another Abba lyric was:
"I was in jail just before we met".  It turns out it's "I wasn't jealous before we met".
Oh how I laughed when she pointed this out. ::-)

Turns out Whitesnake changed the lyrics to Here I go again, due to worries about misheard lyrics

Original from 1982
      YouTube
         - Broadcast Yourself.
   


Newer version from 1987
      YouTube
         - Broadcast Yourself.
   


From wiki
'The song was written by lead singer, David Coverdale, and former Whitesnake guitarist,Bernie Marsden. The most notable differences between the original and revamped version are the style of the music (blues-rock versus hard rock) and a slight change in the lyrics. The chorus of the original version features the lines:
"An' here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a hobo I was born to walk alone"
Whereas the newer version is:
"Like a drifter I was born to walk alone"
In an interview, Coverdale claimed he changed the lyric because he was afraid people would think he was saying homo instead of hobo'

I'm astonished to find that it's not.

I'm suprised Stevie Riks hasn't made it on here yet:

How Deep is Your Love & Night Fever (linkys)

I actually hear these lyrics now when the Bee Gees music comes on the radio or telly.   :facepalm:

Not unusual for Katy Perry songs.  I was amongst many who had to have the term Daisy Dukes in one of her songs explained to me.  The wife told me once by going 'apparently hardly any men know what she'd going on about.


Well indeed.  When it was explained however, being a young lad back when Daisy Duke was on telly, I got it   :-D


Misheard lyrics from me?


Billy Ocean.


Goooo and get Stuffed!


(not really misheard, but my mother once came up with this and now I hear nothing else)


Radiohead.


"I'm a creep.... I'm a Widow'
 :facepalm:


And another not really misheard but deserves a retelling.
