Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Blind Melon

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!).

Blind Melon's, "No Rain"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You know I'd like to keep my teenaged drive today.
The Real Lyrics:
You know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today
The Story: I always thought the singer was describing being constantly depressed, but feeling temporarily good on this particular day because maybe he met someone. Teenaged "drive" to me meant sex drive. "So stay with me and I'll have it made..." Makes sense doesn't it? - Submitted by: Jim
