Misheard lyrics.

"Crazy" by Seal came up in my random listening. A quick google gave me a page with lyrics. It says, in part:
...Crazy yellow people walking through my head.
One of them's got a gun, to shoot the other one.

But I've always heard that as...
Crazy are the people walking through my head.
One of them's got a gun. Shoot the other one.

It made sense to me! Afterall, t's crazy to shoot the guy who doesn't have the gun.

Along the same lines, The Offspring's "Self Esteem" actually says
Late at night she knocks on my door
Drunk again and looking to score
Now I know I should say no
But that's kind of hard when she's ready to go

I've always heard it as "But it's kind of hard when she's ready to go." I like mine better; it's a nice double entendre.
