Say what?

I've always found it funny when I realize I've been singing the wrong words to a particular song. I thought I'd share some of them!

Disclaimer: I apologize if I ruin any of these songs for anyone, cause chance are once you're looking for the wrong lyric, you'll hear it every time.

*****************************
Of course, there's the class Jimi Hendrix song, Purple Haze
The Lyric: "S'cuse me while I kiss the sky!"
My Version: "S'cuse me while I kiss this guy!"
*****************************
Elton John's Tiny Dancer had a couple...
The Lyric: "Hold me closer, tiny dancer."
My Version: "Hold me closer, Tony Danza."
AND
The Lyric: "Count the head lights on the highway."
My Version: "Count the head lice on the highway."
*****************************
Allanis Morrisette's man-hater song You Oughta Know
The Lyric: "It's not fair to deny me the cross I bear that you gave to me"
My Version: "It's not fair to deny me the cross eyed bear that you gave to me". 

Not sure what I thought there, I figured the guy gave her a teddy bear and it was cross eyed, but he took it when he left?? /shrug

*****************************
Tom Petty's Free Fallin'
They Lyric: "I'm a bad boy, cause I don't even miss her. And I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart."
My Version: "I'm a bad boy, cause I don't even miss her. And I'm a bad boy for breakin' her arm."
*****************************
The Police Spirits In The Material World
The Lyric: "We are spirits, in the material world."
My Version: "We're asparagus, in the material world."
*****************************
The Police's Message In A Bottle
The Lyric: "A year has passed since I wrote my note."
My Version: "A year has passed since I broke my nose"
*****************************
The Verve Pipe Freshmen
The Lyric: "For the life of me, I could not believe we'd ever die for these sins, we were merely freshmen."
My Version: "For the life of me, I could not believe we'd ever die forty cents, we were merely freshmen."
*****************************

Ok, so there're a few that come to mind right now, I'm sure there are more, but please chime in with some of your own, so I know I'm not the only one!
