Some times I do, particularly "Crazy Nights" by Kiss, I used to thing it was a song about Stingrays lol.

I often sing the Alicia Keys hit, "This Squirrel Is A Liar"

"You mess with the cat, you get the litter!"

"Lyrics have been changed to protect the legitimate artist,"

...and I still hear Beyonce sing "I'm a Bus Driver"
To those just starting on the journey of life I say...
Bang your own drum. Walk your own path. Live wildly. Love fiercely. 
As you near the end, look back with no regrets.

One song, it sounded like they were singing "Giraffes in the Air" - it was totally something else.

Apparently I wouldn't be the first guy to get the Jimi Hendrix song "All Along the Watch Tower" lyrics wrong, some people think the chorus goes "Excuse me while I kiss this guy", when it's actually "Excuse me while I kiss the Sky"

Before learning the name of the name of the song I used to think Van Halen sang "Cannonball"


Turned out to be Panama. I still catch myself head singing cannonball.
