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!).

Indexes: [#] [A] [B] [C] [D] [E] [F] [G] [H] [I] [J] [K] [L] [M] [N] [O] [P] [Q] [R] [S] [T] [U] [V] [W] [Y] [Z]

Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

Madonna's, "I'll Remember"

Now that I'm standing on my arm
The Real Lyrics:
Now that I'm standing on my own
The Story: Before learning the correct lyrics, I always thought she must be quite flexible to stand on her arm. - Submitted by: redsimba
Shaggy's, "It Wasn't Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Let's review the situation that you're caught up inna
The Real Lyrics:
Best for you and the situation not to call the beaner.
The Story: Y'all have the lyrics backwards cause I've listened to the song and also cross referenced it with many lyric sites. Not ONE has your "correct" lyrics. So thanks for taking the time to update this. Also if you don't want people entering correct lyrics on this form best thing to do would be to make the "lyric corrections" more accessible. I still didn't find it and I've been all over the site, even the FAQs, like I said. Another thing you said in the FAQ that incorrect lyrics doesn't make the misheard lyrics any less funny.. and that's not true. It actually DOES make them not funny at all cause you don't really have anything to compare it to. As far as people making up things and you editing them and weeding it out?? Well I'm gonna have to respectfully call bullshit cause if you go to Shaggy's "It wasn't me" for example.. someone entered long ass misheard lyrics that they obviously thought was funny and not only was it not funny but there's no way they heard all that.. they just entered things they thought were stupid or humorous and y'all let it slide! Which is a total shame cause it really does give the site less credibility . You should honestly make it where someone misheard the same set of lyrics before you enter it. Else it just comes across like a lame fake lyric site/blog by a 13 yr old. Cause honestly at first I was so excited to find this site but after reading a couple of songs I see that you just add whatever you think is funny whether it's true or not... which makes it a PARODY, NOT misheard lyrics... and that came outta YOUR mouth. You also need a suggestion form. It'd help with people not using this form. And like I said before.. either fix or make accessible the link to correct lyrics. Thank you for your time. I only want to help make the site better for you guys. I will continue to check back with the site for changes and credibility before I start recommending it to friends and co workers. - Submitted by: Tonya Dykes
