When it comes to music, everyone knows it’s universally true that we always hear lyrics incorrectly on the first (or second) listen. It’s not our faults, sometimes the radio is full of static, or we hear a song we enjoy when we’re out at a bar and it’s really loud, or maybe at a concert, even. Regardless, we learn the lyrics wrong and end up singing the song wrong—forever. How embarrassing, right? Well, the best part of misheard lyrics is when you admit what lyrics you’ve been screwing up and what you’ve been saying instead of the real lyrics.
It's Hashtags time! Tell us about a song lyric you or a friend misheard and tag it with #MisheardLyrics. Could be on the show!

As a child I was sure the right lyrics was: "Who you gonna call? (Those bastards!)" #MisheardLyrics

My daughter came home from preschool and had learned the Star Spangled Banner. Instead of “and the home of the brave” she sang “and the holy home of Dave” #MisheardLyrics

My best friend used to think the line in Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” was “last night you were in my room and now my butt cheeks smell like you” #MisheardLyrics
