I never knew the ending lyrics to Beetlebum when I was young. I'd just sing anything that sounded like it could fit.

Not Blur but on Gorillaz' Rhinestone Eyes but when he sings "all the verses and the corrosion" it sounds to me as "all the verses and Michael Rosen"

Yep, that Michael Rosen. Unfortunately for him, he is quite popular with the surreal meme side of the internet

This isn't so much a misheard lyric, as a deliberately mistaken one. But my girlfriend usually decides to 'interpret' Colin Zeal as 'He's pissed himself. He's pissed himself. He's so pissed himself. Aah.'

In Charmless Man, I always thought Damon said "beware" instead of "he went" before the "Na na na na's".

I always heard the chorus to Gene By Gene as "I never doggy" :?
Even knowing what the correct lyrics are, I still hear that.

And I thought it was "this is a low, but it won't hold you"

And for Colin Zeal I thought he said "he's pleasing himself" :lol:

When I first heard Ice Cream man at the Secret Gig, I thought it was "Here comes the Ice Cream Man, part of the end of the world" and as I didn't really get the rest of the lyrics at the moment, I came back home imagining an ice cream van in an apocalyptic world, hmm... yeah :roll:

Not a misheard lyric, but that repeated sound at the start of Girls and Boys, yeah, I though that was the barking of the hounds on the Parklife cover when I was a wee 5 years. I have no actually what it actually is though.
