Misheard Lyrics Contribute your own favorite or most embarrassing mondegreens I don't want to step on everyone's toes by listing the famous ones, so I'll start off with a list of songs from my favorite artist that isn't exactly well known. These are some of the best XTC mondegreens. Ones of theirs that even people unfamiliar with the band might appreciate. You don't have to follow this pattern but I thought I'd use this format to list them: (artist and) song original lyric misunderstood lyric XTC: Rocket From a Bottle "Like a rocket from a bottle shot free" "Like a Rock n' Roll Barbershop freak." Senses Working Overtime "1,2,3,4,5 senses working overtime" “1,2,3,4,5 says she's working overtime” “.I've got work to finish off, says he's working overtime" I can see, hear, smell, touch, taste "I can't see her well touched teats" No Thugs in Our House Reports of Asians who've been so badly kicked" "three quarts of Asians who've been so badly picked". Deliver Us From the Elements “Oh lord deliver us from the elements.” “Oh lord deliver us from the elephants.” Dear God "...And all the people that you made in your image, still believe in that junk, it's true" "...And all the people that you made in your image, still believe in that Chunky Stew..."

River of Orchids "I heard the dandelions roar in Picadilly Circus" "I heard that daddy was born in Picadilly Circus."
