Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Andy Williams

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!).

Andy Williams', "The Bilbao Song"
The Misheard Lyrics:
That old Bill Bauer moon
The Real Lyrics:
That old Bilbao moon
The Story: Even though I spent a summer in Bilobao, Spain one summer in the 60s, it never even occurred to me that Andy Williams was singing about 'my' city whenever I heard his popular song! - Submitted by: Ray
Andy Williams', "The Days Of Wine And Roses"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The days of whinin' roses
The Real Lyrics:
The days of wine and roses
The Story: I guess when I heard this, I saw how roses might set some days apart from others, since 'days of roses' could mean time when roses are in bloom. But I couldn't see how wine would set some days apart from others, since wine exists all the time. So maybe that's why my mind skipped over the real words and heard the alternate ones above. - Submitted by: Amber Malone
Andy Williams', "The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year"
The Misheard Lyrics:
There'll be parties for Holsteins
Marshmallows for Tolkien.
The Real Lyrics:
There'll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting.
The Story: I always got a kick out of this, especially those parties for Holsteins (cattle, I presumed). - Submitted by: Amanda Svenson
