Just listening to Elton John's 'Your Song' - with Ronan Keating.

There's one lyric, "I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss..." - the only problem is it's sung by Keating and due to his unfortunate speech impediment, where he seems to slur everything (so 's' sounds like 'sh' ), this comes out as "I shat on the roof".

So not so much a misheard lyric, because that's what he actually says - but it made me laugh anyway

This could explain the S&M moustache, Mark.

On the subject of misheard lyrics I once heard a story about Cliff Richard playing a gig for ex pats in hong kong.
before the gig an excited chinese man came over to him and said "you play your song tits and fanny tonite?"
Obviously Cliff was taken aback and a little insulted and told the guy he was a christian and didnt do material like that.
It turns out afterwards that the guy was some government bigshot and wanted to Cliff to sing "It's so funny" because it was his wifes birthday.
