The second most misquoted song, with 26 per cent of votes, was Rihanna's 'We Found Love', with some listeners thinking that the singer "found Dove in a soapless place".

"We fell in love with some homeless gays"

People are farking idiots, that doesn't even make logical sense.

Buthole sun,

I am the son and the air
of a shyness that is criminally vulgar

Always used to chuckle at people who would dance to that song in clubs and motion skyward and then all around while singing the first line.

Also:

I see a ship in the harbor
I can and shallow bay

"Sweet dreams are made of cheese"

I could believe people singing it this way as a joke, but no way anyone above the age of 10 think that's the real lyrics.

Twinkles : But the real lyrics do?

You would have to be a complete retard to think that the Eurythmics were singing about cheese. The real lyrics make complete logical sense, it's not exactly a complex song.

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused

Don't give me none of your aggravation, you had to lose the Death Star plans.

And don't lean on me man, if you ain't got Thai Chicken.

As a frequent listener to The Tiger Lillies, some of their lyrics should be misquoted. At least in polite company.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: There's a bathroom on the right


The same singer, different song: "Down on the corner, howdy in the street!"

Also in the same song: "You don't need a pinhead just to hang around!"

Another famous artist:  "The chair is not my son!"

And my personal favorite:  "I ate a one-ton tomato!"

Correct lyrics: "...burning out his fuse up here alone"

 "...Burning up his wings at Heaven's door"
"...Burnin' all the fuel I've ever known"
"...Burnin' all the shoes I've ever owned"
"...Burning off the strings up here, alone"
"...Burnin' all the shoes off everyone"
"...Burning down the trees on every lawn"

And I think it's gonna be a long, long time, 'til touchdown brings me 'round, I get too high...

Blinded by the light,
Wrapped like a douche.
Another rumor in the night...

And little early birdie
Gave my anus curly wurly
And asked me if I needed a ride
