"We're Movin' On Up(The Jeffersons theme song) by Janet Dubois

Correct: "Now, we're in the big leagues, getting our turn at bat."

Misheard: "Now we're in the big leagues, there's no turning back."

My misheard lyrics make sense, as I thought it meant after they made it big, they didn't want to go back to living poor. In fact, I like my misheard lyrics better than the correct lyrics.

Good Times(Good Times theme song) by Blinkie Williams.

Correct: "Hangin and a jiving"

Misheard: "Hangin in a trolley."

I thought the misheard lyric was about hanging in a little type of bus called a Trolley, popular in London and San Francisco. Does make sense that people would be hanging in a Trolley. Especially since the Evans were poor, they did not own any cars and took buses to work and school.

A popular misheard lyric is, "Hangin in a chow line," which is a food place where some poor people go to get free food. Once again, the Evans were poor, so that would have also made sense...





My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

Stranded, stranded on the bathroom bowl. What do you do when you're stranded, and you can't reach the roll?

More of a misheard TV show title...

Half Gun...Will Travel

When I was little, I wondered how half a gun could travel.

Your misheard lyric makes sense and would've fit just fine.  The lyric "getting our turn at bat" suggests they are getting a chance to make it big, not expecting anything to be handed to them.  Smile
