Also, from Firth of Fifth...

The actual lyric is "Undinal songs urge the sailors on."

But on my first few listens of the song I thought he was saying "A dinosaur urged the sailors on." grin

If you ever get to hear a recording of an early version of the song (I know of one that's a BBC session, as well as an incomplete one from the same 1971 concert as "The Light"), you'll find that the lyrics in question were actually sung twice in the song at that stage. The first time through, the song continues being quiet; and, if memory serves, it's more clear that he's singing "her warmth."

Not a Genesis misheard lyric, but I thought I'd list this one: In the Coldplay song, "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall" (I'm playing the Mylo Xyloto album as I type this) I always thought the lyric was:

"The Beatles in my heart."

It's actually:

"Cathedrals in my heart."

I looked up the lyrics online because I felt like singing it word from word, and found out I had sang it wrong every time I had listened to it previously. I actually prefer the way I always heard it... rolleyes sad

As a new Genesis fan in the early '80s - and at a time & place where most LP copies available came without lyrics - I particularly found "The Battle of Epping Forest" baffling. Some of what I thought I heard didn't even involve real words (not that the whole thing does anyway - i.e., "thumpires"). But I think my best mishearing was:

"Conceived on sight of the Woodstock nation"
as
"Conceived inside of the word stagnation".

Also, in "Get 'Em Out by Friday," the words are:

"A block of flats with central heating
I think we're going to find it hard"

...but I always heard (and still hear):

"I think we're going to find it hot".

After reading Santibanks's post in another thread, I realised another one today! Always thought it was "We will rock you rock you little snug." Upon checking the LP though, it is indeed, snake! embarassed grin

I always misheard the line in The Musical Box as '...THE WALL!'

Likewise with Squeeze's 'Up The Junction', I thought Barter Street was a street full of pawn shops. As if the man in the song was putting everything in the house in there to get money to put on the horses.

Domino:

"Nylon sheets and blankets help to minimise the cold
But they can't keep out the chill inside"

I prefer that to "chilling sounds", I think cheesy


Also, I used to hear "Now see what you've gone and done" as "While she watches from above".... huh

A new misheard tonight:

Counting Out Time

Real lyric: Getting crucial responses with dialation of the pupils.

Misheard lyric: Getting crucial responses with my relation to the new world.

I think that the real lyrics are obvious given what the song is about. grin wink

Carpet Crawlers;

"like a forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree, they are pulled up by their madness, believing they're free."

I thought it made complete sense. I mean it would be madness for a tree in the forest to believe it could ever be free. So where the hell did magnet come from? How does that make sensehuh

I will most likely continue to sing it my way.

Due to Peter’s distinctive habit of sometimes adding an extra syllable into a word, I misheard the line in Supper’s Ready:
“The order for rejoicing and dancing has come from our warlord”
as
“The order for rejoicing and dancing has come from Our Lord”
which fits in quite well given the various apocalyptic references in the song.
