#FridayFive - Misheard Lyrics

Some time ago, I wrote a post about ELO and in that post, there was a mention of ELO's song "Don't Bring Me Down" and the often misheard lyric in that song. There was a bit of a discussion among friends and I knew then I wanted to do a piece about misheard lyrics. With the Friday Five, I am happy to finally bring you a small number of songs that have misheard lyrics.
