    MJ - I moved your post to this old thread. You didn't indicate what you thought the lyrics in Desperado are, but I believe "Don't your feet get cold in the wintertime?" is correct.

    This is a long thread, but if you read through it, one thing is certain, it's hard to find reliable sources for song lyrics unless it comes directly out of the songwriter's lips. We even found instances where there are supposedly 'official' publications that have discrepancies in song lyrics.

    There is also another thread on the board for misheard lyrics for non-Eagles songs.

    Hotel California

    my lyrics: Her man is definitely twisted

    real lyrics: Her mind is Tiffany twisted


    My sister's name is Tiffany and for a long time both of us sang the wrong lyrics. Even she didn't pick up on her name being mentioned.

    That's hilarious. My favorite (on purpose) misquote from Hotel California is: And she picked up a Ken doll. Then she threw it away. I heard horses at the corner store. I thought I heard them neigh. (Like I said, all on purpose!)

    Haha! Its like whenever I hear Elton John's Tiny Dancer, when I'm feeling silly I'll sing the version Phoebe sang on Friends: Hold me closer Tony Danza.

    Desperado

    Misheard lyric : Desperado
    Why don't you come to your senses?
    Come down from your fences
    OH RENEGADE
    It may be rainin'
    But there's a rainbow above you
    You better let somebody love you

    Correct lyric : Desperado
    Why don't you come to your senses?
    Come down from your fences
    Open the gate
    It may be rainin'
    But there's a rainbow above you
    You better let somebody love you

    This whole time i thought that Henley was singing "oh renegade" until i. was watching the "MTV 1994" special and i had subtitles on by accident and saw that he was saying "open the gate"

    For a while I had heard the Take It Easy line "in a flatbed Ford" as "bright red Ford"

    Funny story: After I had found the correct lyrics on the internet, a friend of mine who is a classic car enthusiast was talking to me and my other friends about older model Fords and he said "a flatbed Ford" and I laughed and sang out "slowing down to take a look at me" He stared at me for a minute with one eyebrow raised as if he were thinking "you are a strange one", shook his head and kept right on with the conversation.
