All the Pringle haters!

In honor of Sunday's Grammys, another of my misheard lyrics roundups.

Best lines: "All the Pringle haters!" ("All the single ladies!")

"Lucy's gettin' high, with Linus." ("Lucy in the sky, with diamonds.")

"With a couple of beers, they have built a home." ("In a couple of years, they have built a home.")

"When you see my face, Oprah gives you hell." ("When you see my face, hope it gives you hell.")

"They call us gypsies, chimpanzees." ("They call us gypsies, tramps and thieves.")

"Knock, knock, knockin' on Kevin's door." ("Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door.")

Click and read the whole thing! It only gets better.

Gael, I saw this article and combed the net for your other "misheard lyrics roundups," and was disappointed to find you missed the quintessential misheard lyric.

Yes, you got Save the Whales (clearly the number two of all time). But how could you forget Manfred Mann's Blinded By the Light?

Where "wrapped up like a douche, and a runner in the night," turned out to actually be "revved up like a deuce?"

I wrote a whole column on that song forever ago...

I used to think it was "secret Asian man" instead of "secret agent man!"
