Yes, and sometimes mine are better than the originals.

Yes, last night had the BeeGees "How Deep is Your Love" in my head, complete with the line "come to me in a submarine" instead of "come to me on a summer breeze".
When I first heard the song as a youngster, a submarine made way more sense.

It's called "Chronic Lyrictosis". Very common affliction...

I do not bother trying to figure out or find the "right" ones. I do try to avoid other people when singing.

@mtm2: Me too mine were better imhop.

Original
The world is a vampire, sent to drain
secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
and what do I get, for my pain
betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
even though I know-I suppose I'll show
all my cool and cold-like old job

despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
someone will say what is lost can never be saved
despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

My darker lyrics:
The world is a vampire, sent to drain
secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
and what do I get, for my pain
betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
even though I know-I suppose I'll go
and have all the common goals like a joke
despite all my rage I am still just ready to cave
souls that are lost can never be saved
despite all my rage I am still just ready to cave
I even interpreted them to mean:
I will eventually grow up and conform, or at least pretend to have the goals, it will be a privet joke.
So now your pissed and fighting back but:
Even the burning rage that you feel can not sustain your existence. Once you (give in or give up) the rage can not win. Too much or too little is bad.

Sung to the tune of "Don't Rock the Boat"..."Don't drop the soap, baby." (I will spare you the rest of my made up lyrics to that one.)

Another shower song: "I just dropped in to see what condition my conditioner was in."

I've found the key to getting a song out of my head is to get a different song stuck in my head. But the key is making sure the second song is one that will go away easier. I like "I'm Just a Little Black Rain Cloud" from Winnie-the-pooh. Not sure why it works but it works for me. I have some friends who use "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall".

My ex used to think that Steve Winwood's "Higher Love" included the lyrics: "Bake me a pie of love."
She was shocked when I explained that it was "Bring me a higher love". She wasn't alone either - her mother agreed that she originally thought it was a song about baked amorous goods as well!!

Also just came across this one, kinda funny:

Just Search "Misheard Lyrics"

@aungie: ever since i was a kid, for some reason, that line - to my ears- has sounded like "we've been down now, Princess Gary", or "this is scary" it was only about 2 years ago someone 2 work told me the proper "even downtown, voices carry"

I make up my own on purpose. Since the Black Friday ad campaign that got "Friday" stuck in my head, what other choice was there? Sometimes I like my versions so much better that I forget the original's lyrics entirely.

We have a song here about how much I like pot pie that stemmed from getting my then toddler to eat a larger variety of vegetables. It worked (he even eats salads now) and the song is remembered fondly whenever pot pie is on the dinner menu.

Only if I've heard alternate lyrics.

I now hear "Firebolt" in place of the lyrics for "Fireworks" (BYU comedy group created the HP lyrics, totally awesome and on youtube).

and my daughter just came up with science lyrics for "Fireflies", and hers is about the Earth being a biome, and she sees thousands of turtles going through a wetland. Now that's what I hear when "Fireflies" starts up.

In both cases (and others) I get the alternate lyrics stuck in my head, and when I hear the original song I hear the alternate lyrics in place of the real ones.

I had probably about 60% of the lyrics to Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" wrong for the longest time. That dude sounds like he has some cotton in his mouth.

When I was a kid I used to get the song "Seduce Me Tonight" from Flashdance. But since I didn't know what that word meant, I always thought it was "Saw Tootsie Tonight."

To this day, I have not seen Flashdance. But I have seen Tootsie.
