Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Aqua

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!).

Aqua's, "Barbie Girl"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm a party girl, in a party world
The Real Lyrics:
I'm a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world
The Story: I first heard the lyrics to this song during a math competition trip in my senior year of high school. At that time, I thought I heard "I'm a party girl" etc. A few years later, after I started college, I tried to look up the lyrics to this song, but I initially had little success. Upon further research, however, I realized that I misheard "Barbie" as "party." I still think "party" sounds funnier in this context. - Submitted by: Wu Mingshi
