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!).

The Story: My sister had never heard the song. She's asked me, 'What's she saying?? I'll dance to your boyfriend?' I couldn't stop laughing. Eventually, I could only hear her saying, 'I'll dance to your boyfriend'. It took me the longest time to hear the real lyrics again! - Submitted by: Ashley
