Most misunderstood song lyrics

    When I was a kid, my parents had an old Perry Como album with the song "Catch a Falling Star" on it. The first words were 'Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket, save it for a rainy day...'
    Well...I always thought he was singing 'Ketchup on your stocking, put it in your pocket...' Just cracked up my parents big time.
    Anyone else out there with any good ones?

    When the Beach Boys sang: Help me Rhonda, help me get her out of my heart; I thought they said, help me eat her out in my car. My aunt finally set me straight after she stopped laughing.

    20 bucks to anyone who can tell me the lyrics to yellow ledbetter WITHOUT cheating by looking it up on the net-I've yet to find anyone who can understand that song without looking up the lyrics.

    This would be hysterically funny if you hadn't been 35 at the time.

    Mares eat oats and does eat oats
    and little lambs eat ivy.
    A kid'll (kid will) eat ivy too. Wouldn't you?

    In the Rolling Stones 'Street Fighting Man', there's a line:

    'Hey, said my name is called disturbance'

    that sounds just like:

    'Hey, so my name is Gorgeous Gervis'

    I'm sure if my name was Gorgeous Gervis, I'd have gotten into plentty of fights.

    Right, Njorl. And this dates your origins to the cretaceous or thereabouts.

    People must believe I am from the Cretaceous Period, too. This might explain why they keep telling me I'm a Cretin.

    In your case any competent geologist ought to be able to match your head with known formations and give you a ball park figure.

    The 70s gave us these lyrics that have reduced cryptologists to wailing and hair pulling ever since:

    Blinded by the light!
    Wrapped uppa like a dooshin ina roller ina night.
    Blinded by the light!
    Wrapped uppa like a dooshin ina roller ina night.

    There was a skit by 'The Vacant Lot' about this song. Four guys are playing cards, and one guy starts singing this, screwing it up completely. The next guy ridicules him, then screws it up worse etc.

    They were a funny comedy team, but they never really made it big.

    I still don't know the correct lyrics to this one:
    Mammaries...lick the corner of my mouth
    Mister where'd you get those mammaries
    of the way we were


    Oh, and what the heck is "the pompatous of love?"

    Hey, was the VL the show which features clips from Jesus' days in high school? They aired that on CBC briefly a long time ago.
