Misheard song lyrics have become the greatest joke of modern times. Thanks to lyrics websites, we are now painfully aware of just how wrongly we've been mouthing wrong all this time. People have taken to social media in their droves to reveal the song lyrics they've been misquoting for years and we just had to share them:
1) 'Hollaback Girl' - Gwen Stefani
Instead of, "Ain't no hollaback girl," I thought Gwen Stefani was singing, "Ain't no harm in that girl," and I thought this until very, very, very recently.

Cumma, cumma, cumma, cumma, cum on chameleons.

7) 'We Will Rock You' - Queen
Am I the only one who's misheard the lyrics to #WeWillRockYou by #Queen? Until embarrassingly recently, I thought it was:
You got blood on yo' face
You big disgrace
Wavin' your bladder all over the place

8) 'Stayin' Alive' - Bee Gees
@FallonTonight #MisheardLyrics When I was a kid, I thought the lyrics to Staying Alive were “Stay in a line, stay in a line”

9) 'Africa' - Toto
Shocking confession: I always thought the line in Toto’s “Africa” was “I catch the rays down in Africa.” I called up the lyrics & saw it’s “I bless the rains in Africa.” I bless the rains in Africa?? What the heck does that mean? “I catch the rays” is much better! #misheardsongs
