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!).

Humble Pie's, "Hot n Nasty"

The Story: I could never understand what Steve Marriott was singing in the days before the Internet. After listening to it for a while as an MP3, instead of on vinyl, I decided he was telling a guy in the men's room to shake his private part off before zipping up his pants - although it seemed improbable. But the real lyrics don't make any sense either. - Submitted by: chlyn

ale alejandra ale alejandra
