Because the papers want to know "Who shot you where?",

Back in high school, I had a friend who thought when the Clash sang "Rock the casbah" they were in fact singing "Rat in the cat box".

An old friend of mine used to sing that as, "You smell like my cat's butt / You smell like my cat's butt."  I don't think he actually thought that was the lyric, though.

like the deadly hands of a radium clock
at the bottom, of the pool

sounds like

...like the broken hands of a radio clock
at the bottom of the pool
Sharks bleed teal.

The summer between high school & college I briefly sorta dated this jock-girl (basketball) who would always sing John Cougar Melloncamp's "Jack & Diane" thusly:

... hold on to sixteen
As long as you caaan.
Changescomearoundrealsoon
Make us swim in a ham...


and then she'd laugh uproarioulsy. I smiled weakly and pretended it was funny. It didn't last long.

Hey, she had great legs, OK?
nakes? On my plane?

From The Beautiful South's "Straight In At 37":

I heard:
"Well Simon le Bon sang at my high school prom
And he was sick in the pants and he was sick in the yard"

they sing:
"Well Simon le Bon stayed round my house before
And he was sick on the plants and he was sick on the floor"
