Not quite a misheard lyric, but worthy of a mention, I think...

Remember that version of "Hooked On A Feeling" by Blue Swede that was a hit back in 1974 (here in the US, anyway)? It was notable for that obnoxious "ooga-chaka, ooga-chaka" chant that had nothing to do with the actual song (and which, BTW, I just found out was originally the idea of our very own Jonathon King!).

Well, when it first came out I always heard the second syllable of the chant as being the first, so I thought it was "gotcha-gah-oo, gotcha-gah-oo" -- which, frankly, I think manages to be even more obnoxious than "ooga-chaka."


The David Hassellhoff version was shite too..so was the video

The video's even more cringeworthy than the song!

Because of the Pope's tour of the UK I've been thinking of 'no, don't stop the Cardinal...' (apologies to the Alan Price Set's 'No, Don't Stop The Carnival')! grin

Tony Parsons in the Mirror wrote about the 'papal aide' who'd said the United Kingdom is a third world country.

Of course, I was singing 'Papal aide, papal aide...' to the tune of Paperlate!

I like the idea of the 'fuzzy bunny' - it could be the Duracell bunny banging the drum (as in Phil in his youth; copper top and never stops!)

Not really a lyric as such, but when listening to the Archive version of the Lamb Lies Down (which was before I got the album) I heard Pete saying in the introduction:

"It tells of how a large black cloud descends into Times Square, straddles out across 42nd Street, turns into wool and sucks in Manhatten Island... Our hero, named Rael, crawls out of the subways of New York and is sucked into the wool to regain concsiousness underground."

I quite liked this idea as it fitted in with the whole "Lamb" theme, and I believed that the Cuckoo Cocoon was made of this Lamb's wool which had encased Rael during Fly on a Windshield (I don't think I ever believed he said "And the wool of death is lowered in Times Square", though I may have thought 'a wall of wool') and ended up under Rael's naked feet in Carpet Crawlers...

I still like this interpretation even though there are many lyrics and notes which say that this is not the case, and it also sounds rather silly now I look back on it.

I'm not sure if this is a misheard lyric but I'm listening to Planet Rock at the mo and they're playing Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. I swear (pardon the pun rolleyes) that Ozzy just sang "You bastard!" which shouldn't surprise anybody going on his track record!

The only reason why I'm surprised is that I've never clocked it before!

Gabble Ratchet, Ozzy's cry of 'You bastard!' inspired 'OMG! They killed Kenny - you bastards!' in South Park!

Merryman 72 - the cloud of wool in your interpretation of The Lamb story suggests an Aardman Animations version of it! Do you remember the scene in A Close Shave where the sheep all climb on to Wallace's bike?

Just listening to Peter Gabriel's Games Without Frontiers reminded me of a friend singing "She's so funky, yeah!" rolleyes grin

For God's sake, had she never heard of It's a Knockout? grin
