The history of misheard lyrics...

From musical video experimenters Collective Cadenza, comes this collection of some of the most commonly misheard musical lyrics.

You may have seen some of these before, like "Excuse me while I kiss this guy" from Jimi Hendrix's Purple Haze, but some seem almost impossible to believe. However, this is coming from the person who thought Billy Joel's We Didn't Start the Fire included the lyric "British flee Romania" (despite the fact that the British were never in Romania), and I could have sworn that Louis Armstrong sang the words "the dark, say goodnight" instead of "the dark, sacred night" in What a Wonderful World. (Don't judge.)

Enjoy. And feel free to share your own lyrical blunders!
