Speaking of Bowie (and comics), when he sings "Not a myth left from the ghetto" in "Young Americans" I hear it as "Never missed from Armaghetto."

Heh. "Armaghetto" sounds like a type of coffee.

The first line of the chorus in "Whenever I Call You Friend"  by Kenny Loggins and Stevie Nicks. The lyric is "sweet love's showing us a heavenly light" but I always hear "beans don't burn on a Saturday night."

From Dan Fogelberg's "Same Old Lang Syne," I originally heard the line "The beer was empty and our tongues were tired, running out of things to say," as "The beer was empty and I pumped her tire," thinking that, lacking any further conversation, yet still wishing to demonstrate that he cared, he made certain a low tire she had was fully inflated before letting her drive off. Hey, it seemed like a nice thing to do.

Jim Croce's lyric from "Operator," "Isn't that the way they say it goes?Let's forget all that..." I first heard as "Isn't that the way they say it goes? Well let's work it all out..." meaning that the attempts to fix the problems in the relationship were transparent from the start, yet they still tried.
