today as my wife and I were driving - Royals by Lorde came on.

And my wife heard; "You can call me green bean" instead of "you can call me queen bee"

My favourite misheard lyric continues to be "Dirty deeds done to sheep" (done dirt cheap).
Now our mom says she's changed her mind about the devil's brood, they may be evil so she thinks, but at least they're never rude...

Morticia I always heard it as "Thirty thieves and the Thunder Chief".

I was flummoxed as to what that meant, but that's definitely what I heard.
"After all this time?"
"Always."

Aka is Morisette "One Hand in my Pocket" I heard "...and the other one on my hot dog". Still not sure where that came from.

When DS was young, he asked me "what's a hosanoo?". He thought the song was Sing, Hosanoo! Instead of Sing Hosanna.
He also thought it was "Hark the Hairy Angels Sing".

Listening to the Tracey Ullmann song Terry:

I heard "Terry's as tough as my umbrella..."

I said "What? That's an unusual metaphor!"
Husband, quite indignantly:
"Terry's as tough as Marlon Brando!!"

I suppose that makes more sense, yes.

Disney's "The Little Mermaid"

Part of Your World
My parents hear: "Buxom women, sick of swimmin', ready to stand...
(and argue how this could possibly be in a children's movie for the next several years)
The real lyric: Bright young women, sick of swimmin'...
