Misheard Lyrics Stories -> Latest Entries

"Walk This Way," Aerosmith
Misheard Lyrics:
Art Display!
Original Lyrics:
Walk this way
Story about this misheard lyric by: Gabe: When I was about 6 or 7 my mom used to put the classic rock station on in the car. This song would periodically come on. I was too young to understand any of the sexual implications of the lyrics at the time, I just thought it was a song about some kids at school. So I thought maybe the song was about how someone had to present their art for an "Art display."
"Subterranean Homesick Blues," Bob Dylan
Misheard Lyrics:
The pump don't work,
'Cause man is just a handle.
Original Lyrics:
The pump don't work
'Cause the vandals took the handle
Story about this misheard lyric by: Caitlin Lion: My parents were alternative lifestyle sorts and fans of Dylan's from an early age. Though they were really disappointed when he became an evangelical Christian. My Dad is into kooky stuff like Gnosticism and looks for esoteric deep meanings in all kinds of crap. So he thought this was like some really deep comment on human nature or the meaning of life or something. It probably is if you smoke enough pot!
"Have You Heard," The Moody Blues
Misheard Lyrics:
Scattered Guernseys in the fields
Original Lyrics:
Scatter good seed in the fields.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Joyce Calderone: Since the 1970s I thought the lyrics were "scattered curtsies in the fields" and today realized it must actually be "scattered Guernseys in the fields" because curtsies in fields doesn't make sense, but cows in the fields does. Well, when I checked the lyrics to submit to I found out the correct lyrics are "scatter good seed in the fields". I give up!

Christine and the Queens
The name clearly suggests it should be a band but it's just 1 person and her name isn't Christine nor is she a queen. Submitted by: A-Lean
Dollie de Luxe
This name might look like the name of a female singer(possibly French), but it's actually a female Norwegian duo, and neither of the 2 members are named Dollie. Submitted by: Chris Chendo
Weather Girls
There are actually 2 bands with this name; an American duo formed in 1977, and a Japanese idol group formed in 2010. Why didn't the first band sue the second band for using their name? Submitted by: Beverly
