Dire Straits' "Walk of Life" -- wrongly interpreted as "Walk On By".

Both Sides Now

Written by Joni Mitchell. Hit performance by Judy Collins.

Sometimes, the misheard lyric is as valid or more valid than the actual lyric

So many things I would have done
But clowns got in my way...

If you're confused by the clarity and truth of the misheard song lyric, "clowns" is actually "clouds".

Clowns get in my way,
Every day,
Every day.

The O'Jays "Who Am I?" (from 1972 "Back Stabbers") (B 45 single side of "Love Train") WRONG: "I shoot the people ditching, oh to what she said, I just would miss it, I had to bury your dead" (woooooooo) ALSO: "I had a very hard day" & "I had a very hard head" & finally at the end of the song WRONG: "Hey i'm lost, lost, lost lost.......lost stone stone stone in this cry day, cry day, cry day, cry day crying who who who" (when the song fades out)!! Here is the RIGHT lyrics: https://genius.com/The-ojays-who-am-i-lyrics
