Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Basement Jaxx

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!).

You'll end up cold and lonely
If you don't get a bull in your hair.

The Misheard Lyrics:
Where's your ass?
The Real Lyrics:
Where's your head at?
The Story: I didn't know the name of the song when I first heard it, and I thought the song was singing about "asses." It wasn't until I saw the music video did I realize I had the chorus completely wrong. - Submitted by: Effrom
