We’ve all misheard song lyrics. Sometimes we catch ourselves messing them up, other times our friends start laughing and ask us what the heck we just said. There are the classic misheard song lyrics like “Excuse me while I kiss this guy,” but I wanted to make a list of newer songs that are commonly misheard.
1. Chasing Pavements by Adele
Misheard Lyrics: “Should I give up, or should I just keep chasing penguins?”
Correct Lyrics: “Should I give up, or should I just keep chasing pavements?”
I suppose I can see how one might hear “penguins” instead of “pavements” in this song. It’s not one of the misheard song lyrics that I experienced personally, but I do understand where the people who failed to hear the correct words were coming from. It doesn't make the tiniest bit of sense though!
