I'm compiling a list of misunderstood song lyrics as a gift for a friend who has an obsession with, well, misunderstood song lyrics. [...]

Some of my own gaffes, most of them from childhood:
"Go, spiders in the sky!" (Ghost Riders in the Sky)
"Because night, we are night divine!" (The BeeGees "Night Fever, Night FEEver")
"With the thoughts you'd be thinkin'/You could be an Arthur Lincoln/If you only had a brain" (Which convinced me at an early age that "Arthur Lincoln" was a great American thinker).
Can you add to the list? I need the real song name and artist.
