I'm always mishearing lyrics, mostly because the vocalists have accents or just plain pronounce things wrong in English.
A common one that a lot of people mishear, including myself, is Sonata Arctica's The Cage.
The lyrics are "Empty the stare, innocent and unaware, dragged out from my home ,my lair." but everyone hears "Empty the stare, innocent and in underwear
, dragged out from my home ,my lair." ....though they occasionally have some odd lyrics anyways.
I always mishear Vintersorg's E.S.P. Mirage lyrics "I intersect the shining pulsator" as "I intersect the shining potato
DH always mishears (first unintentionally, now on purpose) KMFDM's Flesh. Instead of "Press my flesh" he'll sing "That's my fish" along with it, he even did this when we saw the band live a few years ago and were near the front.
Also, if anyone searches there's an old old thread that's several pages long about misheard lyrics. I saw it revived for a short period several months to a year or so ago.
