Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> 5 Seconds of Summer

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!).

5 Seconds of Summer's, "Hey Everybody!"
The Misheard Lyrics:
We can all get some
Yeah, we can all get laid
The Real Lyrics:
We can all get some
Yeah, we can all get paid
The Story: My mom was actually the one who heard it wrong here. So, I was showing the video for this song to my mom, and she was like "Isn't this kinda sexual? I mean...'we can all get some/we can all get laid?'" and I gave her the look and said, "No,'s PAID!" lol we had a good laugh about it! - Submitted by: wand erection
5 Seconds of Summer's, "She Looks So Perfect"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Your lipstick stain ain't workin' out
I’ve got your name tattooed in an Arab font
Your lipstick stain ain't workin' out
I’ve got your name tattooed in Araldite
The Real Lyrics:
Your lipstick stain is a work of art
I’ve got your name tattooed in an arrow heart
The Story: This often comes on the radio at work. I thought that it was interesting that he would have a tattoo of someone's name in Arabic writing, and wondered why he didn't just say 'name tattooed in Arabian' I knew he wouldn't be singing about Araldite (a type of super glue), so I was sure they were the correct lyrics. Once I looked them up I found they were both wrong... - Submitted by: Me again...
