RE: My favorite misunderstood song lyric....
When I was a kid I thought "Another Saturday Night" by Sam Cooke was "On a Saturday night and I ain't got nobody. I got some money cause I just got laid." I did not know the expression "get laid" yet, but that is what is sounded like to me.

They're just high on drugs or they have marbles in their mouths or something.

They're not on drugs for that recording, they just literally hadn't rehearsed for more than a couple minutes. The studio boss came in and was like, "okay guys, we're cutting now", and they were like "wait, what?" and from there it's history.

That's funny. I had no idea. Wonder why they didn't let them practice. Anyway, I've always liked that silly song and when I googled the lyrics recently I realized what a nice song it is.

Here's Iggy Pop doing Louie Louie. He changed some of the lyrics in the first half of the piece. I understand about 1/3 of what he says.

As embarrassing as this is I thought those were the lyrics until my first year of college when I finally listened more carefully to the song.

I can't believe how stupid I was. Then the words to Louis Louis by the Kingsman in 1963 were so garbled that the words were anyone's guess. Here are the orginal lyrics but there are other versions. It's actually a nice song.

Louie Louie, me gotta go
Louie Louie, me gotta go

Fine little girl she waits for me
Me catch the ship for cross the sea
I sail the ship all alone
I never think I'll make it home

(chorus)

Three nights and days me sail the sea
Me think of girl constantly
On the ship I dream she there
I smell the rose in her hair

(chorus)

Me see Jamaica moon above
It won't be long, me see my love
Me take her in my arms and then
I tell her I never leave again

I have a few more lyrics that I totally misunderstood like Manfred Mann's Blinded by the Light which I thought was:

Blinded by the light
Rained up like a douche
In the roller of the night.

But it's actually:

Blinded by the light,
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night

Anyone else have wrong song lyrics confessionals?

The comic strip Bloom County had a piece on 1988 presidential candidate misunderstandings of the song:
