I've absolutely no idea what made me remember this homophone mistaken lyric from way back in my childhood...
I was always under the impression that Puff the Magic Dragon was brought ceiling wax. What is ceiling wax??? What do you do with it, use it to stick the strings to the ceiling??? ...Oh, you meant sealing wax... lol
In Killer Queen I thought the “absolutely drive you wild” part was “absolutely try new wines”, always seemed a bit weird to me how they were singing about wine but then again they mentioned caviar so I rolled with it. Didn’t know the real lyrics until I saw the Bo Rhap movie.
Mine from Killer Queen: I always thought "gelatine" was "turpentine", and that "temporarily out of gas" was "temporarily alley cat" (probably tricked into thinking that because of the "pussy cat" line that comes before it).
For the longest time, I didn't know the name of the Ramones' song "Blitzkrieg Bop," because I had only heard it on the radio and not seen the song title written down. I thought they were singing "let's kick bum," instead of "blitzkrieg bop."
Misheard lyrics, Traveling Wilburys edition: I thought that “I see the sun ahead” in Heading for the Light was “I see the summer haze”. That’s probably my favorite song off that album, though I really can’t choose between it and Rattled...and Handle With Care. They are all so good!!!
elophile: OH, Yes! Will you take a little sip when no one is looking?

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
