Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> ‘Til Tuesday

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.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

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!).

‘Til Tuesday's, "Voices Carry"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Oh, take it down south. This is scary...
The Real Lyrics:
hush hush keep it down now voices carry
The Story: A few months ago I was on vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC and I remember this song playing in the car while I was there. I thought the song was talking about something very descriptive, but then I found out what the real lyrics were. - Submitted by: Pickles
