Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Alkaline Trio

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!).

Alkaline Trio album at
Alkaline Trio's, "Burn"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Like starving wolves drowning sheep
The Real Lyrics:
Like starving wolves counting sheep
Alkaline Trio's, "Queen Of Pain"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It's not much of a gesture
But I'd just poison food for you.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm not much of a jester
But I'd test poisoned food for you.
The Story: In the beginning, I thought that the misheard lyric could fit Alkaline Trio's lyrics, expressing an irony towards 'the queen of pain'. It would be ironic for someone to say that the least he can do is poison the girls food. But I was wrong, it's completely the opposite. - Submitted by: Brax Oner
Alkaline Trio's, "Time To Waste"
The Misheard Lyrics:
To say I love the street
I see you in line every day.
The Real Lyrics:
For sale down the street
I see you in line every day.
