Misheard Lyrics of Moody Blues – Side A

The superb Moody Blues had a hit with the great song “Nights in White Satin.”

Now, with most of my misheard lyrics, I eventually found out the correct words. However, I hereby swear to you that until yesterday, I thought they sang “knights” instead of “nights.” Not only does this change the song’s meaning somewhat, but it also completely upends my understanding of the universe. I mean, is nothing unchanging? Is there nothing immutable we can cling to in times of turmoil? Egad.

Here are the real lyrics:

“Nights in white satin
Never reaching the end
Letters I’ve written
Never meaning to send”

Misheard lyrics #11

Which version do you prefer?

– Paul De Lancey, The Comic Chef, Ph.D.
