My last big blunder was:
I'm so sick baby, it's so sad.

The actual line is so much cooler:
I'm so slick baby, it's a sin.



i always hear, im so sick baby its insane.

In "I think I lost my headache"

Wrong: "burn like cat house"
Right: "burn like match house"

On the album it sounds "match house", but sometimes on live shows it sounds like "cat house" (or Josh is just improvising wink.gif  )

One example
check it at 03:02

List any lyrics that you thought were something else at first. For Example...

Skin On Skin
Actual Lyrics: I wanna lick you too much.
Misheard Lyrics: I wanna lick your tumor.

Many people on SongMeanings claim to have heard "I wanna lick your tomato" on that one.

from How to handle a rope:

right: you can't hear it
        
WRONG: I can't get erect
            
Yeah, I could tell you I was high or drunk when I heard that, but I wasn't. I was convinced he says that for the first few days after I first heard the song. Then when I realised I misheard that line, I was dispointed. With my hearing AND the actual lyric.

Haha, this is teh best threadz. Idaho89 and me have been talking about how we haven't actually heard ANY lyrics at all really, just been singing wordless mumbo jumbo when singing along. For YEARS. We actually thought about starting a topic like this but never got around to it.

It's mostly Josh's songs though, hecould have been singing in greek for all I know. Nick and Lanegan I understand without problems. I have such a long list of misheard lyrics that I won't even begin to think of posting it all, but I guess I can write up a few nice ones (from both me and Idaho89):

wrong: wanted you that i know just what you mean
right: point and shoot i know just what you mean


rolleyes.gif

I thought he was saying "I promise you I know just what you need"
or is that another song?
Also I think he says  "In a world thats full of shit Ive got some real things"
Not "In a world thats full of shit and gasoline"

You Can't Quit Me Baby:

Actual: You're solid gold, see you in hell
Mine: You saw to go, seal in hell


Feel Good Hit Of The Summer:

Actual: Nicotene, valium, vicodan, marijuana, ecstacy and alcohol
Mine: Naked scene, rally 'em, bike 'em in, marijuana, ecstacy and alcohol


Era Vulgaris:

Actual: Everybody else wanna fall in love, there's no room for love in a modern sky, living in the era vulgaris, just drool in the dark as you stare at the lights
Mine: Everybody else wanna fall in love, there's no room for love in a mouldy skive, heaving in the ear of fucking rust, just droolin' and talkin' as you skip at the lies


How To Handle A Rope:

Actual: You've got it alright, you got a feeling
Mine: You've got it all, Rex, you gotta feed 'em


A Song For The Deaf:

Actual: Who are you hiding, is it safe for the deaf?
Mine: Oooo, ah eee ah yeah, is it safe for the deaf?

Also-

Actual: Sweet, soft, and low, I will poison you all, come closer, racing to your turn
Mine: Sweet, salty moan, I would poison the moan, come closer, racing to your toe


Quick And To The Pointless:

Actual: Godverdomme, you gotta be with me
Mine: Thank god for Tommy, you kinda really me


Go With The Flow:

Actual: Falling in and out of love, something sweet to throw away
Mine: Falling in and out, oh no, something sweet to bowl away


I Think I Lost My Headache:

Actual: Catch and release me, what the hell were they thinking of? You know why...
Mine: Kachung the wreath snake, what the hell were they thinking of? You know I...

Also-

(My personal favourite)-
Actual: You know why they call and just let it ring. No reply...
Mine: You know why they call it dislettering. No reply...

I listen to that CD while I'm washing the dishes and sing along to it... I still can't stop saying nigger by mistake. It could be to do with the fact that he says "white boy". And also in the line before he says "bigger's bigger", which rhymes with nigger. Maybe it was gonna be but they changed it at the last minute to make it more PC. I mean it makes more sense- mocking the flyboys, maybe.

I'm glad he doesn't.  That would make me uncomfortable.  Like when I listen to Holiday In Cambodia.

It's "Thrill, a thrill, I need a thrill, I want a thrill, I need a thrill"

I didn't realize that he was saying anything, but then I watched their performance of that song on the Henry Rollins Show and it's really obvious.

My other QOTSA ones-

Regular John:

Actual: And where's your daddy now? I heard he ran away
Mine: And where's your totty mound? I hurt you anyway


Avon:

Actual: I string 'em up, I cut 'em down. Dare I say
Mine: I string 'em along, and God I'm done. Dare icy


If Only:

Actual: If it gets you down, well then I'll take it
If it gets you up, then I don't want it
If it lets you down so broken hearted
If it gets you down, well then I want it
If only, only etc
We're nothing at all
Mine:
If you get chewed down, well then I'm taken
If you get chewed up, then damn I want it
If you get chewed down, so broken hearted
If you get chewed down, well damn I want it
If only, only etc
We're no good at all


You Would Know:

Actual: Got crosshairs in his eyes
Mine: Got cross-haters in his eyes


Mexicola:

Actual: Setting sun deals hands of gold, there's velvet eyes in Mexico
Just a fall away, and all she said was true
Mine: Setting softly had some gold, there's elder eyes in Mexico
Justa found a way, all shit sound was true


Give The Mule What He Wants (I might as well just post the whole lyrics for the song since I didn't get much of it right...):

Actual: The mule want it, the mule want it Sunday
Hell eat it, hell eat it one day
How long, long do I wait?
Be the mule that you gotta be
Underwater, underwater one day
Gonna sink it, make em think its too late
For your love
For your love
Be the mule that you gotta be

Mine: You'll want it, you'll want it some day
He'll eat her, he'll eat it one day
How long, long do I weigh?
Feed the mule that you gotta be
I don't want her, I don't want her one day
God will sink it, make 'em think it's today
For your love
For your love
Feed the mule that you gotta be

pretty sure it's point and shoot. That's what the various lyrics sites say anyhow, and it pretty much sounds like that when he sings live as well. But then again, you never know..

haha, these last replies are just.. beyond everything i've ever seen. *wipes tears from eyes*  laugh.gif

btw i never knew he sang "and where's your daddy now, i heard he ran away" in Regular John. I was like, where the hell is that from? and then i realized it has to be the part where I keep saying "and what you've done now, and how do you anyway"..  rolleyes.gif

I thought it had something to do with a morgue too lol. But I mean, come on, with QOTSA you never know what they were on when they wrote a song, therefore I wouldn't be surprised by anything!
As for the love from behind thing, when I first heard it I thought, "Wow, this guy has no problem being open and letting everyone know it. Kudos for him." haha

I used to suffer insomnia a few years ago. My GP prescribed me sleeping pills but they made me feel so ill that I stopped taking them and instead would lie in bed with QOTSA playing on the stereo. As this phase lasted about 8 months, I had a lot of time to analyse the hidden layers of meaning beneath Josh's words... And yet I never got around to finding out what the actual words to QOTSA's songs were...

Picture this: A fourteen year old girl, lying in bed, exhausted. Tears running down her face from lack of sleep, mouthing along to the words of In The Fade...

"They don't know, I never do you any good
Laughin' Azizi, I would if I could..."
