Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> A*Teens

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!).

A*Teens', "Floorfiller"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The Real Lyrics:
The Story: When I went to see the A*Teens in a concert in New York City (Times Square), I thought they were singing about some weird plant called a Phlophilla. It kind of made me wonder what plants they've been encountering. - Submitted by: Joseph
A*Teens', "Upside Down"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Oh dear, she says to concentrate
So what, her name is Beeda the Great
As king and queen, we’ll have to wait
'Cause I don't have forever
The Real Lyrics:
My teacher says to concentrate
So what; his name was Peter the Great
The kings and queens will have to wait
'Cause I don't have forever
The Story: I thought “Beeda the Great” was an sarcastic nickname the male singer was using to refer to an authority figure (like his mom or his teacher) whom he couldn’t stand. I also thought the singers were imagining themselves as royalty in the future, rather than talking about actual historical royals. - Submitted by: Hu’s On First
