For all the times we've talked about misheard lyrics I never heard of Peter Kay. He's a standup comic from England who's been very successful overseas. He's starred in a couple BBC sitcoms, won awards for his comedy, and was named the 46th most influential figure in British culture.

Never knew about him until he popped up on Facebook; something about this hysterical guy playing around with misheard lyrics. A quick Youtube search later and here it is. Just a warning, this is most definitely not safe for work.

Among my own noteworthy misheard lyrics is Rocket Man by Elton John. The part where he sings...

Mars ain't no kind of place to raise your kids
in fact, it's cold as hell
and there's no one there to raise them
if you did

For years I always belted out at full volume...

Ma this ain't no kind of place to raise your kids
in fact, it's cold as hell
and there's no one there to raise them
if you died

Bill Doyle is certainly not immune from mishearditis. For years he had Every Breath You Take by The Police wrong. The part where it goes...

Oh can't you see
you belong to me
my poor heart aches
with every step you take

For the longest time he thought it was...

Oh can't you see
you belong to me
I'm a pool hall ace
with every step you take

Even producer and sometimes co-host Joe Votruba isn't immune. The song Drops Of Jupiter by Train correctly goes...

Did you make it to the Milky Way
to see the lights all faded
and that heaven is overrated

But Joe V. incorrectly heard it as...

Did you make it to the Milky Way
to see the lights all faded
and Van Halen is overrated

These are always fun to collect so do us a favor and share your own embarrassing misheard lyrics.
