I can't make the link from my iPhone, but there is a YouTube video for the following:

O Fortuna misheard lyrics.

Just google it. It's hysterical with the animation. Don't watch while eating or drinking, it will be messy.

Misheard Lyrics

Found these misheard lyric cork coasters at a craft market and bought them for Christmas gifts - they were a big hit.

"Hit me with your pet shark" is one of my favorites.

How do I make a formal complaint about this thread I'm now obsessed with the multiple YouTube video mixes of misheard lyrics. I'll never get to sleep tonight......

Yea I read that somewhere.

Joe Cocker (RIP) iconic performance at Woodstock. Lots of misheard lyrics!

Even now, I think our supposedly misunderstood, totally filthy version of the lyrics was correct. And no, I'm not saying! I'll bet that half of the copies of that record sold, were to people who were arguing over the lyrics.

Even the FBI had a hard time figuring out the lyrics:
5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.

Well, all I know is, an awful lot of pop singers seem to be obsessed with going to the bathroom. It's a Potty/Let's Potty/Potty All Night Long/Potty with You....

When I was younger, way before the internet, I tried to figure out the words to the song that was played during the closing credits to WKRP in Cincinnati. Could have saved me a lot of time and aggravation if they had Google back then
