There’s a bathroom on the right.

Anyone who listens to music or tries to sing to a song on the radio has misheard a lyric. Spotify has put together a list of the ten most misheard song lyrics. From the Huffington Post’s article, here are the lyrics. The often misheard line is first followed by the correct line

1. Blinded by the light…wrapped up like a douche when you’re rollin’ in the night / Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night (Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Blinded By the Light) – 52%
2. ’Scuse me, while I kiss this guy / ‘Scuse me, while I kiss the sky (Jimi Hendrix, Purple Haze) – 19%

  1. Thank you for clearing up ‘Blinded by the light” – I have never understood what the heck he was saying there… 🙂 so glad the song isn’t about douches!

    I know the lyrics and it still doesn’t sound like he says deuce! My younger brother when he was little thought Sheena Easton’s Strut……strut, pop, put it out….said striped potted pudding. That still cracks me up.

  3. I always love these! 🙂

  4. Cathy Ulrich says:

    I always thought it was “There’s a baboon on the right!”

  5. Cee Neuner says:

    I knew a couple of these! How fun!

  6. Trisha says:

    I’m a very visual person so I always crack up at the images these misheard lyrics bring to mind.
