Procol Harum's song "As Strong As Samson"

Correct lyric:
"Weakest man be strong as Samson
When you're being held to ransom."

Misheard lyric:
"Weakest man be strong as Samson
When you're bidding him to write a song."

FWIW, I like my misheard lyric better, even in the song's context.

Sheryl Crow - Every Day is a Winding Road

Correct lyrics:
"Everybody gets high, everybody gets low,
These are the days when anything goes"

Misheard lyrics:
Everybody gets high, everybody gets stoned,
These are the days when anything goes

Madness' "Our House"

Correct:
Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired, she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs

Wrong:
All the worst is Sunday's best
Mother's tied, she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs

Lucille by Kenny Rogers.

You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille
Four hungry kids and a crop in the field

Our kids were small when that song was out

On day I heard one of them singing

Four hundred kids and a crap in the field.
