Lottery or Cockroach?

I'm notorious for misunderstanding music lyrics. For example, I thought Til Tuesdays song "Voices Carry" sang "Ooh hush, keep it downtown this is Carry" and Dream Academy's "Life in a Northern Town" was instead of "life in a northern town", "laughing along"

Bjork is one of those core musicians for me though I find her lyrics notoriously indecipherable. Her song "Crying" off of Debut is no different. For years I thought she sang the following:

Misheard Lyrics:

Crank the shiny tune!
Crank! I can feel you.
Crank the shiny tune!
Crank! Cuz I care.

Actual Lyrics:
Crying cuz I need you.
Crying I can feel you.
Crying cuz I need you.
Crying cuz I care.
