Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Autograph

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!).

Autograph's, "All I'm Gonna Take"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I served you thankless bacon.
The Real Lyrics:
My circuit breakers breakin'
The Story: I must have been hungry; I almost died of laughter when I looked up the real lyrics later that day. - Submitted by: C Fisher
Autograph's, "In The Night"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Another night she waits for her marriage day.
The same old story's got her in a dress,
just like her books of Harlequin romance.
The Real Lyrics:
Another night she waits for her imaginary date.
The same old story's got her in a trance,
just like her books of Harlequin romance
The Story: When I heard my screwed-up version of the above lyrics I thought this song was about someone whose boyfriend refused to marry her and that she was waiting for him to call her to propose and reading romsnce novels while she was waiting and that she was imagining herself in a wedding dress. I still say my lyrics make a little more sense than Steve Plunkett's (Autograph's lead vocalist) lyrics - Submitted by: Sandi The Glamm Slamm Goddess Of Noize
