Misquoted Song Lyrics

Sometimes I randomly google stuff (don’t we all).  Recently I stumbled upon a list of frequently misquoted song lyrics.  This list is certainly not exhaustive, but the songs listed are some of the funniest (especially the first one, in my opinion):

“The ants are my friends, they’re blowing in the wind.” (Real lyric: “The answer is blowing in the wind,” Bob Dylan.)

“There’s a wino down the road.” (Real lyric: “And as we wind on down the road,” Led Zeppelin.)

“How’s about a date?” (Real lyric: Billy Idol’s “Eyes without a face.”)

“It means so much to me, like a birthday, or a preview.” (Real lyric: Duran Duran’s “A birthday, or a pretty view,” from “Rio.”)
