Misheard lyrics

Prompt: We've all got them...what are some of your favorite misheard song lyrics?

There's two in particular that really bug me. Ironically, I was just discussing these with the kids on the weekend.

Knew the signs
Wasn't right
I was stupid for a while
Swept away by you
And now I feel like a fool
So confused,
My heart's bruised
Was I ever loved by you?

Okay, I know she doesn't actually say gonorrhea at the end there, she says 'out of reach'. But the first time I heard it, I heard 'gonoorhea' and now every time she says 'out of reach' (which is often in that song) that's what I hear. Way to put a person off a song! I played it for the kids in the car, and they agreed that it did kind of sound like gonorrhea. What do you think?

If you don't like our anal weights
Then leave us alone,
'cause we don't need your policies
We have no apologies for being...

Steve and I listened to this song over and over again, sure that she couldn't possibly be saying 'anal weights', but for the life of us we couldn't hear anything else. As it turns out, she says '808s', referring to the volume of their music as best I can tell. Not really sure, to be honest. But oh my god, it really does sound like anal weights. *Facepalm*
