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 Story: This is one of the favourite songs of a DJ whose show used to be a hell of a lot better before he switched radio stations. He played it tonight and I heard this mondegreen, which made me chuckle. So far, I haven't got mad enough at him to tell him the misheard lyric ... yet ... *Evil laugh* - Submitted by: Elizabeth
