Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Anita Ward

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!).

Anita Ward's, "Ring My Bell"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You can read in my bed
Read in my bed
The Real Lyrics:
You can ring my bell
Ring my bell
The Story: I was listening to my radio one day, and this song came on. I thought, "Why is she saying someone can read in her bed? That's not a very social activity. The reader could just read elsewhere." Then I listened more carefully. "Oh, that makes more sense," I thought as I realized what she was saying. - Submitted by: Quist
