Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Amy Grant

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!).

Amy Grant's, "House of Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And I'll bet ya
When your out of money
You'll be coming back to me.
The Real Lyrics:
And I'll bet ya
Any 'mount of money
You'll be coming back to me.
The Story: When I was sitting in the car with my mom(she's an Amy Grant fan), I heard (or thought i heard) the lyrics above. I joked to my mom that this song must be about when Amy Grant divorced whats-his-face. She had no idea what I was talking about, so I told her what I thought the lyrics said. Then she cracked up and told me what the real lyrics were - Submitted by: Tower7
Amy Grant's, "I Need a Silent Night"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I need a silent night, a holy night,
To hear an angel voice through the kiosk and the noise.
The Real Lyrics:
I need a silent night, a holy night,
To hear an angel voice through the chaos and the noise.
The Story: I listened to this several times on a Christmas disk, thinking she was saying "through the kiosk and the noise", and thinking the kiosk reference to be a peculiar and baffling one. Eventually, though, I realized that she might be saying "chaos" instead of "kiosk". That seemed more likely to fit the line. I went to a lyrics site to make sure I'd finally heard it right as "chaos", and I had. - Submitted by: Fiona Montrose
