"Kick the world in a loving place. Fire all of your guns at once and explode into space."

"I can see clearly now my brain is gone, I can see all orchestras in my day."

"I can see Cleveland now, Lorraine is gone..."

"Let me introduce you...to Sergeant Pepper's Foamy Harps Club Band."

Etc.

       "Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle,
The girl with colitis goes by."

       I've read this one before here.
The idea is edging dangerously close to list-ville.
  

       There are tons of sites about this kind of thing.

       Yes, but is there a CD yet?
Eugene, Apr 03 2004
  

       No, 'cause it's stupid.

       I'd have great fun at one of these, although I never would learn the *real* words, (or sing them again).

       waugs, reconsider that aside from parodies, misheard lyrics haven't been done as an audio release. I mean, just because this concept is "stupid" doesn't necessarily mean most lyric/song/album/concepts are "smart." For example, If the attempt is earnest to duplicate what has been "heard" - not contrived/faked/precious, (think karaoke done from misheard memory) to the point that the misheard lyrics are indistinguishable from the real thing, then there's the possibility that *listeners* may mishear misheard lyrics and think they're hearing the original, "correct" lyrics. Full circle.
