Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Better Than Ezra

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!).

Better Than Ezra's, "A Lifetime"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Three and a half T'Nuks
Felt like a lifetime.
The Real Lyrics:
Three-and-a-half minutes
Felt like a lifetime.
The Story: I envisioned someone trapped in a room with three-and-a-half of them and could understand how it might feel like a lifetime. I swear, it really sounds like 'T'Nuk' instead of 'minutes.' - Submitted by: Holden McCrank

Desperately horny.
The Real Lyrics:
I remember running through the wet grass
Falling a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately wanting.

God save the king of New Orleans

I swear on my family's honour that I heard the singer sing, "god save the thing of New Orleans!" I suppose it pays to pay attention to those lyrics doesn't it? - Submitted by: Celeste Keenan
