Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> 3 Doors Down

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!).

3 Doors Down's, "Be Like That"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Foreign men, I still love foreign men.
The Real Lyrics:
Falling in, I feel I'm falling in.
The Story: I always knew that couldn't be the real lyrics to the song, but that is what it sounded he was singing. One day, I was at work. The guy working beside me was listening to the radio. On that part of the song, he was singing "the foreign men". I just started laughing, but I was glad to know that I wasn't the only person that thought that's what he was saying. - Submitted by: Angel
3 Doors Down's, "Here Without You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm livin' without you, baby.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm here without you, baby.
The Story: I like to tease my boyfriend (who listens to strictly rap music only) about his lack of knowledge of pop music. He probably thinks that '3 Doors Down' is the neighbor's house. Anyway, he must have heard this song in my car and he was walking around singing it one day. The next time it was on the radio, I told him to listen more closely and he realized the correct words. - Submitted by: Frann
3 Doors Down's, "If I Could Be Like That"
The Misheard Lyrics:
F*** me right now.
The Real Lyrics:
If I could be like that
The Story: Every time this song plays, my wife mentions this mishearing. She's Thai and somewhat shy when it comes to carnal acts. But she never hesitates to tell this one. - Submitted by: Josh
3 Doors Down's, "It's Not Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Nevermind the shrimp you bit on.
The Real Lyrics:
Nevermind the trip you've been on.
The Story: This song was played live before it was released on "Seventeen Days". When I heard the "700 Miles" version of this song, I knew that couldn't be the right words. But that's what it sounded like live. - Submitted by: wadded beef
3 Doors Down's, "Kryptonite"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I left my body lying somewhere in the centre-time.
The Real Lyrics:
I left my body lying somewhere in the sands of time.
The Story: I had to sing this for school. And I was consantly singing it wrong. Another student pointed it out. It would've been funny in Battle of the Bands. If I sang it wrong, we'd have lost!! - Submitted by: Cassie
3 Doors Down's, "Kryptonite"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'll keep you by my side
With my super view and my
Kryptonite
The Real Lyrics:
I'll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite
The Story: Until recently, I thought these were the lyrics. I thought 'super view' referred to Superman's x-ray vision and heat ray, and that the band meant he would be keeping close watch on the girlfriend in the song. Also, I thought that Kryptonite sounded strange in this context because it's the substance that weakens Superman and not something that's useful to him, but now I understand the lyrics better. - Submitted by: Schuimend Mormel
3 Doors Down's, "Kryptonite"
The Misheard Lyrics:
If I'm Aladdin, will you be there holding my hand?
The Real Lyrics:
If I'm alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?
The Story: I used to think that he was saying Aladdin, because he said Superman in the song. I figured that it was actually a song about Superman, since Kryptonite is something related to him. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
