From 1982, Marshall Crenshaw's "Someday, Someway." In the first line of the song, I thought he was singing "I can't stand to see you sad, I can't b**ch (bear) and here you cry." At times in the chorus, I thought he was singing "Someday Subway" Maybe I'll understand you (no pun intended). Another New Wave knee slapper (a non Top 40 hit) Squeeze's "Pulling Muscles for Michelle" Actually it's "Pulling Mussels (From A Shell)" LOL!
I think Elton John went to the Mick Jagger school of 'how to mumble some of the lyrics'. I know that several of his songs (Rocket Man, Bennie and the Jets) it is difficult to understand ALL the lyrics. I remember seeing a commercial a few years ago when people 'botched' the lyrics to Rocket Man. The ad was hilarious (although I don't really remember what they were selling).
In light of the recent death of Zsa Zsa Gabor, I'd like to bring up that memorable oldie that refers to her by name---"Donna, The Prima Donna" by Dion (1963). I just recently learned that the actual lyric went "She wants to be just like Zsa Zsa Gabor". It's funny, but I always heard that line to be "She walks the beaches like Zsa Zsa Gabor". (Although the thought of her strutting along the beach in a bikini always did seem odd to me.)

"Swear allegiance to the flag, whatever flag they offer. Never hint at what you really feel."---Mike and the Mechanics

Diamond's I'm Alive says "look around it's a hard life everywhere". For the longest time I thought he said..'It's a Heartlight everywhere', since Heartlight was the album the song was on and his prior single.
