Misheard Lyrics Stories -> Latest Entries

"Not Myself Tonight," Christina Aguilera
Misheard Lyrics:
The music's none of my business
I'm only on the porridge and spinach
Original Lyrics:
The music's on and I'm dancing
I'm normally in the corner just standing
Story about this misheard lyric by: Devil Jones: Christina has a habit of losing her enunciation when she's attempting to 'belt' in her faux-soulful voice, so sometimes it's difficult to hear what she's saying. I was under the impression that she was talking about her diet restricting her ability to have fun and party...
"Bootylicious," Destiny's Child
Misheard Lyrics:
Are you really ready for this journey?
Original Lyrics:
I don't think you're ready for this jelly.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Logan: I thought this was the real lyric at first.
"Uma Thurman," Fall Out Boy
Misheard Lyrics:
She likes to dance like "Ooh I'm fartin'"
Original Lyrics:
She likes to dance like Uma Thurman.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Mellissa: I was listening to the radio of my town, with 3 of my friends and the song came on and we all of course started dancing. When we heard the lyric we suddenly thought we heard "She liked to dance like oooh I'm fartin'" and from then on we always have joked about it and sung that when it comes on.
"Last Christmas," Hilary Duff
Misheard Lyrics:
I'm hiding from you
And your suicide.
Original Lyrics:
I'm hiding from you
And your soul of ice.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Karen Smith: I have a Christmas CD by Hilary Duff. This year for the first time, I found myself listening close to the lyrics of this particular verse. This particular couplet came across to me as per the misheard version. But I thought, surely that isn't the correct lyrics. So I went home and found the correct lyrics by googling the song title and artist. Sure enough, I'd misheard the lyrics. I'm glad I did. For a Christmas song, the song is enough of a downer in addressing someone as having a "soul if ice". The story doesn't need suicide in it! Since I generally like Hilary Duff, I'm glad this isn't a song made famous mainly by her.
"Gimme Shelter," Rolling Stones
Misheard Lyrics:
Oh Jimi is just a shadow way
Original Lyrics:
War, children, is just a shot away
Story about this misheard lyric by: passen: I thought Mick just didn't like Hendrix.
"I'm Your Man," Wham!
Misheard Lyrics:
I'll be your friend, I'll be your toy
I'll be the one who brings you joy
I'll be your hope, I'll be your pearl
I'll take you halfway 'round the world!
Original Lyrics:
I'll be your friend, I'll be your toy
I'll be the one who brings you joy
I'll be your hope, I'll be your pearl
I'll be your Hamburglar of the world!
Story about this misheard lyric by: Jim Sinclair: I made my high school friends listen to this a hundred times. We pondered why someone would need a Hamburglar, much less THE Hamburglar of the world.

Babyraids Japan
How would one "babyraid" something, let alone a country? And what the heck does it mean? It doesn't make sense. Submitted by: Phoebe Miller
Charisma.com
It's stupid, because web addresses are not very good names to use for a band. Did they just pick a random word and add ".com" to the end of it? And if they had a website, would it be called "Charisma.com.com"? Submitted by: Frieda Evans
