Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Alannah Myles

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!).

A new religion that I'll bring to your knees.

A new religion that'll bring ya' to your knees.

Alannah Myles', "Black Velvet"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Like a velvet if you please.
Every world, every song that he say for you.
The Real Lyrics:
Black velvet if you please.
Every word of every song that he sang was for you.
The Story: I think, MetroLyrics say "if you please". But, other sites say "give you please". I'm so confuse to compares lyrics of this song. Originally, I posting another misheard lyrics of songs like "Goodbye to You" by Michelle Branch (in the Avril Lavigne place but lose to Cutting Crew/Filter), "It's Alright, It's OK" by Ashley Tisdale (in the Avril Lavigne place if Ashley Tisdale won but giving to Cutting Crew/Filter), "Sentimental Street" by Night Ranger (in the place of Cutting Crew/Filter but I selected "Black Velvet" that I'll see this for the first time on 3 July 2017), and "MacArthur Park" by Richard Harris (in the Johnny Farnham place but he and Johnny not to come to the place), but all of these are giving to this song, "Black Velvet". About this song: Originally released in late 1980s, "Black Velvet" was written by Christopher Ward and David Tyson and actually was about in the memory of Elvis Presley (Chris Isaak was also influenced by rock and roll and including Elvis Presley for Chris Isaak's rock and roll music and if I hear Chris Isaak it would be "Wicked Game"). "Black Velvet" was first released on Alannah's debut studio album released on 28 March 1989. It would be her only major hit single with topping on Billboard's Pop Chart, reaching #2 on the UK Singles Chart, and entering the Top 10 on her native country, Canada. - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
