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!).

It's hard to get evicted, yeah
It takes a lot of practice.

Takes a lot of practice.
The Story: I'll try to be concise here, but it's really hard to summarize three years of mayhem in a few short paragraphs. I lived with a bunch of engineers on a house near the UW-Madison campus and a common activity for us was drinking Sparks (a caffinated malt liquor 'energy drink') and doing obnoxious stuff. The obnoxious activities included things like destroying household appliances, riding motorcycles and shooting off bottle-rockets indoors, making napalm, and even an accidental living room fire which consumed a half-liter of 60% alcohol (but fortunately did no damage to the house or furniture). Towards the end (several friends were graduating and moving on to real life) we sometimes discussed whether we'd get evicted before the end of our lease (or at least lose our $1500 security deposit). Just after the '04 presidential election we had an incident in which the police and fire department was called to our house at 3:30 AM (by our next-door neighbors) because of a burning bush in our yard. We were fortunate to avoid charges of arson or disorderly conduct (especially after claiming it was a political statement), so after the police we celebrated by downloadeding this song, burning it to a CD, and playing it on our house stereo at full-blast while running up and down the street with sticks singing and yelling 'America loves Bush!' This song became somewhat of a theme song to us, especially because we were all pyros and came up with ever-more-creative ways of burning stuff. I could understand all the lyrics after a few listens, except for this one line, which really truely sounds to me like 'it's hard to get evicted yeah it takes a lot of practice.' It's been more than a year since this all happened and I still thought those were the real words (or at least a close approximation), until I looked it up today. - Submitted by: Ethan from UW-Madison
Yes I'm Cisco, yes I'm Ebert.
Yes I'm Siskel, yes I'm Ebert.
The Story: I'd spent days fighting a damaged Cisco Systems, Inc router when I first heard this track, found it mildy ironic. That is until I realized what the real lyrics were. - Submitted by: Cian Duffy
