Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Berlin

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!).

Berlin's, "Take My Breath Away"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Julio Iglesias, I saw you
In time you slipped away.
The Real Lyrics:
Through the hourglass, I saw you
In time you slipped away.
The Story: A friend of mine was getting married and she needed to pick a wedding song to be played at the ceremony. I suggested the song. And she was dead serious when she said, 'Ewww, that song is about Julio Iglesias. That can't be my wedding song!' She explained what she heard, and I told her what they really were. We laughed so hard, we cried. - Submitted by: roseann amato
