Excuse Me While I Kiss This Guy: Most Hilarious Misheard Lyrics
2. Creedence Clearwater Revival, "Bad Moon Rising" - This classic CCR track is notorious for the misheard lyric "There's a bathroom on the right" instead of "There's a bad moon on the rise." This particularly common mis-hearing is probably due in part to the slapback echo employed on John Fogerty's vocals, which tends to throw the ear off the trail a little bit.
1.

This one is so common that it was used as the title for a popular book on misheard lyrics by Gavin Edwards. more on this story
