and misunderstand the words. I know I have. when I first listned to "Breakin dishes" by Rhaniana (sp?) I thought "off your head"
was "f****ing man." Although that MAY be she feels about her ex-boyfriend.

I've done that, on a mild level. I memorized a song by ear, and then looked up the lyrics only to realize what I thought was "silent" was actually "silenced" and what I thought was "when" was "and." There were more errors.

I do this all the time, which is partly why I try not to memorize lyrics by ear. I've made some embarrassing mistakes.

Same, if I'm memorizing lyrics, I'm looking them up first.

I like to look up the lyrics of a new song just to avoid that. Some artists have great diction, others...erm......yeah. lol

Some of the lyric sites don't quite have it right either. I know one song that has the lyric "I'm six foot none" but the sites give it as "a six foot nun" (which I certainly hope isn't the correct lyric ;) ).
