Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Index

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

The Who's, "Baba O'Riley"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Out here in the fields, I found where Bob kneels
The Real Lyrics:
Out here in the fields I fight for my meals
The Story: I was getting a lift home from college by a friend and the song came on the radio. Somehow the "strange" lyric came up, which I suggested sounded like someone named Bob was being forced to give oral sex to make ends meet (no pun intended). My buddy laughed his head off and corrected me. I was SO embarrassed. - Submitted by: Andy Byers
Paul Simon's, "Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Me and Coolio down by the school lawn
The Real Lyrics:
Me and Julio down by the schoolyard
The Story: I really wondered by that word "Schoolyard", and hearing this song, I would know better that even though Coolio was alive by then, rap wasn't a common fad. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
