Song lyrics you get wrong

You’ve all been there: You’re out with your squad, vibing to the music, and belting out the lyrics to a song, (low-key knowing that they’re a little off but rolling with it anyways). And then some Debbie Downer inevitably corrects youmid-chorus and it’s like, really, is this karaoke because I did not sign up for the real-deal lyrics in my face like that?? Anyways, the wrong lyrics are arguably the best lyrics, because they give the song in question a new, more interesting meaning. Here, are some classics that you get wrong every damn time, and WHO EVEN CARES REALLY?!?!?
