This week we had a caller admit that she thought Calvin Harris' song Feels featuring Katy Perry contained the lyrics "don't be afraid to catch FISH!"
And it turns out she wasn't the only one who thought that!
The actual lyrics of the song's chorus are: "Don't be afraid to catch feels / Ride drop top and chase thrills / I know you ain't afraid to pop pills / Baby, I know you ain't scared to catch feels / Feels with me."
However, the soft way Katy Perry sings the word "feels", it's easy for some to hear the word "fish" instead.
This got us thinking, what other songs have we been singing wrong?
Here are five of our favourite songs with lyrics that get completely misheard:
1. Taylor Swift - Blank Space
Misheard lyric: Gotta love these Starbucks lovers
Actual lyric: Got a long list of ex-lovers
2. Backstreet Boys - I Want It That Way
Misheard lyric: Tummy, why? Ain't nothin' but a fart, hey
Actual lyric: Tell me why! Ain't nothin' but a heartache
3. Pink - Learn to Love Again?
Misheard lyric: Just give me a raisin, just a little bit's enough
Actual lyric: Just give me a reason, just a little bit's enough
4. Avril Lavigne - Complicated
Misheard lyric: You promised me I’m never gonna find your bacon
Actual lyric: You promised me I’m never gonna find you fake it
5. Sia - Cheap Thrills
Misheard lyric: 'Til I hit the dumpster, hit the dumpster
Actual lyric: 'Til I hit the dance floor, hit the dance floor
