You go me on the alarm clock
The ones that spring to mind for me are song lyrics that everyone in the world knew, but I was convinced said something else. Most prominently Bohemian Rhapsody, the line goes "Any way the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me".

Well into my mid twenties, I was convinced he was singing "Hit me with a window".

On that same note, to realise it was Brian May playing guitar at the end rather than Freddie Mercury singing da da da dum. I was always convinced it was a voice rather than an instrument.

Never being able to remember which side the car's filler cap was on, it was only last year that my son pointed out the little arrow on everyone's fuel gauge that tells you.

Library please.
I used the word modem the other day when speaking to a 20-something in our IT team. He laughed at me.

A TV advert for Fairy Liquid containing a very annoying jingle, the words of which went "Hands that JUDICIOUS can feel soft as your face, with mild green Fairy Liquid", or so I thought for surprising number of years ! Doh ! (facepalm)

Me thinking I'm a cool young dude when on the MRT in Singapore a woman in her 40's stood up to offer me her seat. I was wearing my rapper hat, too!
