Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Alice In Chains

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!).

Like the coldest winter whale
or
Like the coldest winter will

Like the coldest winter chill

Alice In Chains', "Rooster"
The Misheard Lyrics:
All is green but no Saint Pat's.
The Real Lyrics:
Army Green was no safe bet.
The Story: Long ago when the video for this song was released on MTV (yes, MTV once had VIDEOS!). My friend, Wade, and I (who were in junior high at the time) were up late drinking copious amounts of caffeine. We loved the video, and the song on the CD, but couldn't for the life of us figure out what the lyrics to this passage were. For some reason, 'all is green but no Saint Pat's' fit the Vietnam-lost-depressing theme. We found out later, to our chagrin, that we were stupid. - Submitted by: Robert Weaver
Alice In Chains', "Rooster"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Walking tall, chicken man.
The Real Lyrics:
Walking tall, machine gun man.
The Story: I don't know why I actually believed this great band would sing a song about a chicken/man hybrid! Since the day my husband realized this lyric mishap on my part, he calls me from work and turns up the song on the radio at my expense. - Submitted by: Rachel Husky
Alice In Chains', "Would?"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And do the flutter kick
The Real Lyrics:
Into the flood again
The Story: This song was pretty popular when I joined the Army in 1994. The "flutter kick" was one of the exercises that we had to do in basic training. Ever since then I've heard the lyrics as being "and do the flutter kick". Fifteen years later this song still reminds me of that torturous exercise. - Submitted by: wang chung
