What's Your Funniest Misheard Song Lyric?
 

Britian's most misquoted lyric is "Sweet dreams are made of cheese" (Eurythmics, 'Sweet Dreams'), according to a Spotify poll. Other examples in the top ten include "Hold me close now Tony Danza" and "we found dove in a soapless place." Quite funny, but I'm sure you can do better. My personal favourites are "I remove umbilicals (you sexy thing)" and "Beelzebub has the devil for a sideboard". I asked Twitter for some suggestions. "Boogie with your dad" for 'Boogie Wonderland', "like the legend of a penis" (Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky'), 'lion the tiger' for 'eye of the tiger', and "Don't Go Jason Wonderful" (TLC's 'Waterfalls') came up. Now it's your turn. What are your funniest misheard lyrics?
