Top 10 Songs with Misheard Lyrics You Can't Unhear

I succeeded to unhear many misheard lyrics. But some of the misheard lyrics are too stubborn and this list is about them.

The Top Ten

1 You Can Leave Your Hat On - Joe Cocker

I hear "You can leave your HEAD on" and can't unhear it.
(please, play the sample and tell me he doesn't say "head" 🙄)
Actual lyric: You can leave your hat on.
Side note: this is one of the sexiest songs ever made, in my opinion. It was a soundtrack to the film 9½ Weeks. - Metal_Treasure

2 Symphony of Destruction - Megadeth

I always hear "You try to take his balls."
Actual lyric: You try to take its pulse.
I've listened to this song many times but I will always hear "his balls" and not "its pulse". - Metal_Treasure

Great song though - Metalhead83927

3 Paranoid - Black Sabbath

I hear "I tell you to end your life."
Actual lyric: I tell you to enjoy life.
Yes, that's another stubborn mondegreen in my music life. - Metal_Treasure

4 Breaking the Law - Judas Priest

I will always hear "Brick in the lawn! Brick in the lawn! " (play the sample).
Actual lyric: Breaking the Law - Metal_Treasure

5 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden

Yeah it really sounds like Duck. - JoLeKosovo

"Fear of the duck."
Actual lyric: Fear of the dark. - Metal_Treasure

6 Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi

"It doesn't make a difference if we're naked or not."
Actual Lyric: It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not - Metal_Treasure

Yep. I can never hear this one the same way again. - Gg2000

7 Sad but True - Metallica

After many listens, I still hear "I'm your pain while you repay / You know it's self-control."

Actual lyric:

I'm your pain while you repay / You know it's sad but true - Metal_Treasure

8 Valhalla - Blind Guardian

I hear "Valhalla, the liver runs! "
Actual lyric: Valhalla, deliverance!
(in this case, the sound of the misheard lyric is really very close to the sound of the actual lyric) - Metal_Treasure

9 The World is Yours - Arch Enemy

"If you want the world, lose your mind"
Actual lyric: If you want the world, use your mind.
(this line appears several times in the song and sometimes I hear "use" but sometimes - "lose"). - Metal_Treasure

10 Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival

I hear "There's a bad moon on the right".
Actual Lyric: There's a bad moon on the rise.

Some say they hear "There's a bathroom on the right".
I personally don't hear "bathroom" but it's funnier if you hear that. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Purple Haze - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

"Excuse me while I kiss this guy"
Actual lyric: "Excuse me while I kiss the sky"
I don't know about you, but I've always heard the original lyric.
