This is a thread to post any times that you've been listening to a Rush song, and you hear something that sounds different from what the lyrics say.

I'll start:

The Big Money - Power Windows:
Original:
"Big Money goes around the world. Big Money take a cruise."

Misheard:
"Big Money goes around the world. Big Money Ted Cruz"

I feel the sense of possibilities, I feel the wrench of hard realities, the boat doesn't stop in the city
