Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Blues Traveler

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!).

Blues Traveler's, "Run-Around"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Could you?
Why you want to give me what I want?
or
For you.
Why you want to give me round and round?
The Real Lyrics:
But you.
Why you wanna give me a run-around?
The Story: Maybe, next time I play this song. About this song: While this song is not number-one on some greatest lists, but this song was their highest position on both "Top 10000 Pop Songs of All Time" and Rock Channel's "Top Pop Songs of All Time". Fortunately, my favorite drinks like coffee and tea are mention on the lyric of this song. For easily, not all choruses can be seen. - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
Blues Traveler's, "Run-Around"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I shall drink in an honest people
Yeah, I won't drink in an always people.
The Real Lyrics:
I shall drink in and always be full
Yeah, I will drink it and always be full.
The Story: Shoot, I never had a clue what the song was about. I just found out the true lyrics 5 minutes ago, surfing this very site. I guess it did seem a little weird that he was perfectly willing to drink out of an honest people (person?), but wouldn't extend the same courtesy to an always people. - Submitted by: Sarah
