Misheard lyrics

I swear I heard this lyric in the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive:"

"Well there's a big ol' panda on my shoes..."

Surely that would be heavy?

Unless the panda is warming them up for him?

"Got the wings of heaven on my shoes..."

Yes, sounds just like "panda".

I always do that. Madonna- Like a Prayer.

What she says- Let the choir sing.
What I heard for years- Life or quasi.

For a teenager, life or quasi was deep, especially if, as she showed on the video, you are in love with a Saint. Or its statue!

Your panda thing is a bit disturbing.

My favorite misheard lyric was from the Clash's "Rock the Casbah." At age seven, having no idea what the Casbah was, I skated around the roller rink yelling, "rocks and asphalt. Rocks and asphalt."
