Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Ace Of Base

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!).

The Story: This is one of my friend's absolute favorite songs. She always talked about how great the lyrics were, and I always would kind of just smile and nod, like, 'is she perverted?' One day, she told me she was going to recite these lyrics as a poem for Speech class. I asked if she had cleared it with the teacher, and she said yes, the teacher thought it was a wonderful idea. She asked if she could recite it for me to practice, and it was then that I realized my, err, rather large mistake… - Submitted by: Stevie
