My mum used to sing the lyrics to Summer In The City wrong, instead of saying "back of my neck getting dirty and gritty" she'd sing "back of my neck getting dirty real pretty" :lol:

When I was little my parents used to play some sixties compilation album and when it came to Bobby's Girl, I always sang "I wanna be mummys girl" because that's what I thought she said lol.

    One of my friends has just started to learn English and she is having problems with the listening comprehension exercises. She told me that last week there was a man saying "I'm a lawyer" and she heard "hallelujah". Her teacher couldn't stop laughing.

    That reminds me of a scene in Reno 911 where they're trying to make a foreign guy say Hallelujah and he can't even get close! :lol:

    I always thought it was "text book open" and "text book closed" but then I realised textbook was in fact taskbook! :-D

    As a completist I hear everything correctly.
