Post here when you hear a lyric wrong, and even better when you've heard a lyric wrong for years, and finally realize the truh.

I have always heard "Yesterday I woke up sucking a little more" in Radiohead's Everything in its Right Place.

So as far as I'm concerned, that's the correct lyric.

When Metallica’s black album came out my brother thought “Sad But True” was actually a song about Desert Storm called “Sand Patrol.” :lol:

My friend and I got in an argument years back about the opening lines to Norwegian Wood. I was right. But he swore the line was "I wanted a girl or should I say she wanted me."

This is actually probably not the right thread for this but I couldn't find a "lyrics you thought you misheard but really didn't" thread so I'm putting it here.

When Quick Escape dropped, I thought Ed was trying to say "Sleep sack in a BioVac" (which is idiotic but you know Ed) but he was just mispronouncing the word. And I was like, why is he saying BioVac like "beaver whack"??? It was infuriating.

Then I saw the line and it all made sense. I was hearing him correctly the entire time I just assumed he was being an idiot. But he wasn't. It was me the whole time!

Drive-By Truckers, "Let There Be Rock": I thought "Dropped acid, Blue Oyster Cult concert, 14 years old," was "Dropped ass at the Blue Oyster Cult concert..."

Until yesterday I thought Donald Fagen was singing "Stone away the time" in the Steely Dan song Reelin' in the Years.
