Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Alice Cooper

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!).

Alice Cooper's, "Burning Our Bed"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Baby, I might lose my mind
Maybe I might lose my hair
The Real Lyrics:
Baby, I might lose my mind
Maybe I might lose my head
The Story: It took me a long time to realize that line was meant to rhyme with "bed". It stumped me though why - near the end of the song - he'd add in the background, "It wouldn't be the first time," after the misheard lyric. It was a bit embarrassing when I realized my mistake. Luckily I never tried singing this out loud around anyone. - Submitted by: Mark
Alice Cooper's, "Poison"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Boysland
The Real Lyrics:
Poison
The Story: I always thought this was a song about a girl who'd been around the bush and back a couple times, and it was an ode to her nether regions. Hence, Boysland. - Submitted by: TetsuoK
Alice Cooper's, "Poison"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I want to taste you
But your lips are feminist poison.
The Real Lyrics:
I want to taste you
But your lips are venomous poison.
The Story: I was on a trip down to Santa Barbara, CA with a bunch of friends for a choir competition, and this song was blaring on the bus. A friend of mine sang the chorus as misheard above, and got a purse in the face from a fellow classmate who happened to be a self-defined "feminist". Then someone corrected him, and laughing ensued for the next year... - Submitted by: Yomi Mizuhara
Alice Cooper's, "School's Out"
The Misheard Lyrics:
School's out for Emma
The Real Lyrics:
School's out for summer.
The Story: My name is Emma so I always sing 'School's out for Emma'. I think it sounds cool. - Submitted by: Emma Hanby
Alice Cooper's, "School's Out"
The Misheard Lyrics:
School's out with feeling
School, out, carn-evil
The Real Lyrics:
School's out with fever
School's out completely.
The Story: I can imagine after school's out for summer, the children go to a carnival. And since it is Alice Cooper singing, I thought he was deliberately mispronouncing carnival as carn-evil because he was kind of evil (at least on stage). - Submitted by: Opie M.
Alice Cooper's, "School's Out"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Schools belong to meatheads
The Real Lyrics:
School's been blown to pieces
The Story: I always believed those were the lyrics. I recently saw Alice Cooper sing it on tv. When he sang the song, I thought he may have sung something different. I looked up the lyrics on line and found out what they really were. - Submitted by: Bruce
Alice Cooper's, "The Black Widow"
The Misheard Lyrics:
There's no pledge of allegiance to
The black widow
The Real Lyrics:
We're all humanary stew
If we don't pledge allegiance to
The black widow
The Story: When my brother and I were little we used to listen to this song and sing the words really loud, but we never knew what he was singing at this part of the song. We always thought he was saying "There's no pledge of allegiance to the black widow." It just seemed to make sense. - Submitted by: Black Rose
