Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Amy Winehouse

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 Winehouse's, "In My Bed"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You'll never get mama right
Like two ships passing in the night
The Real Lyrics:
You'll never get my mind right
like two ships passing in the night
The Story: The song came on the radio as me and my mom were listening. "She has an amazing voice, but why is she singing 'never get mama right'?" she asked me. I'd heard the track before and I was sure those were the right words, so I replied "She's using black slang, it's mama meaning "your woman". Only when I got 'Frank' did I realize what the lyric was. - Submitted by: Martin
