Misheard Lyrics

Have you ever realized that you have been singing the wrong lyrics to a song?

For example, in Manfred Mann's Earth Band's song "Blinded by the Light", many, including myself, hear "wrapped up like a douche" instead of "revved up like a deuce."

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - Blinded by the Light

Any other good misheard lyrics out there? I didn't see a thread like this out there and it's interesting what people think they hear.

"Walking on a wave she came.." Can't Get it out of my Head ELO

In that song, "4 minutes," by Madonna and Justin Timberlake, there's a line that sounds like, "If you farted, it better be what you want." I don't know what they really say.
