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!).

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

Third Eye Blind's, "Semi-Charmed Life"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And I speak to you like the colors to the birds
The Real Lyrics:
And I speak to you like the chorus to the verse
The Story: This is what I thought they were singing for years, until I looked up the actual lyrics (I also didn't realize they were singing about crystal meth at first). Interestingly enough, birds have tetrachromatic vision, so they can see more colors than we can. - Submitted by: Hu's On First
Traditional's, "Jingle Bells"
The Misheard Lyrics:
One whore soap and slave.
The Real Lyrics:
One horse open sleigh
The Story: This was kind of disturbing. - Submitted by: Big E
