Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Beyonce Knowles

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!).

Beyonce Knowles', "Crazy in Love"
The Misheard Lyrics:
(gasp) oh, (gasp) oh,
(gasp) oh, banana
The Real Lyrics:
Uh-oh, uh-oh
Uh-oh, oh-na-na.
The Story: It sounded like she was gasping saying "oh" and finally "banana". - Submitted by: Jeremiah Johnson
Beyonce Knowles', "Me, Myself And I"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Yeah, you heard me
The Real Lyrics:
Yeah, you've hurt me
But I've learnt a lot along the way.
The Story: Since Beyonce was ad-libbing towards the end, it just seemed natural to me she might've been trying to say 'You've heard me a long way', though I did feel she was stretching it ridiculously to fill up the bars. - Submitted by: Monokini
Beyonce Knowles', "Naughy Girl"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna feel your wedgie.
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna feel your energy.
The Story: I was at my cousin's house and I heard that song; I swear I heard 'Baby, I wanna feel your wedgie.' I was saying, 'What since when does Beyonce sing about wanting to feel a wedgie?'. My cousin burst out laughing. Then I was with my sister, and I told her about the lyrics. She had me listen to it closely and then we got the lyrics correct. - Submitted by: Anne Marie
