Those lyrics do get twisted…

I’m guessing that none of us who were at the Salvation Army concert last night will ever here “Anything You Can Do” again without thinking “I can hump a turtle” and laughing.

Song lyrics are often mis-heard with hilarious results.  Haven’t you ever been singing a song a certain way, and then later been surprised to find out what the word actually were?  Here are a few very funny lyric “twists”:

“There’s a bathroom on the right” (“There’s a Bad Moon on the Rise” by Credence Clearwater Revival)

“See that girl, watch her scream, kicking the dancing queen” (“Dancing Queen” by Abba)

“I’ll never leave your pizza burnin” (“Beast of Burden” by the Rolling Stones)

“Hold me closer, Tony Danza” (“Tiny Dancer” by Elton John)

“Jose, can you see?” (“Star Spangled Banner”)

You can find even more in a whole online archive of mis-heard lyrics at

  1. Oh my but that was a very funny moment during the concert at Salvation Army. Dan and Maureen did such a great job of going on and making the flub a part of the show. Maybe they ought to do it every time?
