Famously Misheard Lyrics From the 1990’s

Some vocals are really difficult to distinguish, hence song’s lyrics that aren’t easy to decipher, bringing on mistakes that the casual listener turns into reality, only to be surprised profoundly when he realizes what the real lyrics are.

The second example of misheard and mistreated lyrics is when kids in kindergarten or someone whose had too much to drink decides to make up his own words for the song.
