    Music is said to be a universal language. As, even in lyrical songs, regardless of the language you speak, it can still evoke emotion and feeling. But what if those times where you try to sing along to a catchy rhythm that you love, only to look up the actual lyrics, and find out you've been singing the wrong words the whole time! What are your worst misconstructions of musical lyrics?

    Persona 3 - Burn my Dread

    really any song with engrish in it.


    REAL LYRICS

    I will -
    (Burn my dread)
    I once ran away from the god of fear
    And he chained me to despair-yeah
    (Burn my dread)
    I will break the chain and run
    till I see the sunlight again

    WHAT I THOUGHT

    I will -
    (Burn my dread)
    I once ran away from a godfree
    and he chained me to a chair-yeah
    (Burn my dread)
    I will break the chain and run
    ???????? sunlight again.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA...laugh at me

    Basically me with every vocal track on P5s OST, I sang along all kinds of random gibberish to Life Will Change and Rivers In The Desert.

    Sounds like absolute gibberish at the start, lol.

    However, this doesn't apply in this case as there are no official lyrics.

    Though, I did misinterpret parts of the intro song to Sonic CD (You Can Do Anything).

    Not mine but my sister thought the line "but in his mind he's the dopest trip" from Pretty Fly (For a White Guy) was "He's a tuna strip"

    Half OT, but this makes me remember of songs listened to phonetically in other languages.
    One example is Billie Jean, listend to from a Spanish perspective:


    I assure you I have lost my ability to understand what he is really saying.
    Since I saw this, I can't listen anything else but "quieres una manzana?" there (do you want an apple?)
