The Most Misunderstood Song Lyrics Ever
“Excuse me while I kiss this guy.” Huh? Jimi Hendrix sang that? Not quite.
He actually sang “Excuse me while I kiss the sky.” Yes, misunderstood lyrics can be quite confusing at times, but in the end, still quite hilarious.
Here are some other confused lyrics that I have personally found myself singing:
Taylor Swift ‘Blank Space’: Gotta love these Starbucks lovers, they’ll tell you I’m insane.
SIA ‘Chandelier’: I’m gonna fly like a BURP in the night. Feel my teeth in the light
Magic ‘Rude’: Saturday morning, jumped out of bed, put on my BEAR suit.
More Taylor Swift ‘Shake it off’: Bakers gonna bake, bake, bake, bake, bake
