Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Blur

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!).

Blur's, "Charmless Man"
The Misheard Lyrics:
He thinks he's educated and those Bambi shirts will protect him
The Real Lyrics:
He thinks he's educated and those family shares will protect him
The Story: As a busker, I sang these misheard lyrics in my local highstreet believing the meaning to be that if you wear a shirt with Bambi on it, you look less threatening. - Submitted by: Chris Kershaw
Blur's, "Chemical World"
The Misheard Lyrics:
But that not says that she's having a wee.
The Real Lyrics:
The landlord says that she's out a week
The Story: Well I always thought it was quite quirky to have the lyrics "having a wee", especially as the next line in the song is "What a shame, she was just getting comfy." But the landlord thing makes much more sense. - Submitted by: AdvertBreak
Blur's, "Coffee & TV"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Do you feel like a chainsaw?
Cracked up in the floor.
The Real Lyrics:
Do you feel like a chain store?
Practically floored.
The Story: We were going to cover this song in our band, so I started singing. After those two lines, everyone else just stopped playing their instruments. They laughed their heads off. I was quite embarrassed. We scrapped this song after all. - Submitted by: Chris the sheep
Blur's, "Parklife"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Potlife!
The Real Lyrics:
Parklife!
The Story: I was shouting "Potlife" while walking through the park. And then it hit me. British accents are hard to decipher sometimes. - Submitted by: Abn
Blur's, "Song #2"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I got my head shaved
By a chomboche.
The Real Lyrics:
I got my head checked
By a jumbo jet.
The Story: We listened to this song at camp each day. Everyone in my bunk was wondering what a chomboche was for 2 weeks. - Submitted by: nathan
Blur's, "Song 2"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I got my head Jane
Buy a jumbo J
It wasn't a C
But nothing it else.
The Real Lyrics:
I got my head checked
By a jumbo jet
It wasnt easy
But nothing it is.
The Story: I thought this is a song about "Wheel of Fortune". I buy a J, and the girls gave me a C. Bizarre! - Submitted by: okipops
Blur's, "Song 2"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I got my head checked by a jamochek
The Real Lyrics:
I got my head checked by a jumbo jet
The Story: My friend Tony told me this lyric. He says a jamochek is the African equivalent of a shaman or holy man. Uh-huh...sure, Tony, whatever you say! - Submitted by: Dean Nye
Blur's, "Song 2"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I got my head shaved
Biyotch ja moche' It wasn't easy
But nothing else, no
Well, I feel heavy metal
And I'm pissed just a little
Well, I'm lying amazing
All of the time but I'm never sure where I'll meet you
The Real Lyrics:
I got my head checked
By a jumbo jet
It wasn't easy
But nothing is
No
When I feel heavy metal
And I'm pins and I'm needles
Well I lie and I'm easy
All of the time I am never sure why I need you
The Story: My younger employee said that she had heard this song that she didn't know what it was, she thought it might have something to do with Buddhism because the first line is something like "I got my head shaved" and the second seems to be an expression in some foreign language. I later found the song by accident. "Biyotch ja moche' ???" - Submitted by: AK
Blur's, "Song 2"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I got my head shaved By Edward Mojay
The Real Lyrics:
I got my head checked By a jumbo jet
The Story: I sung this lyric in our band for about a year, when the lead singer of Blur (who was at our gig in a small pub in Sydney one Saturday night while they were on tour here) came up to me after the set and corrected me - funny thing was he told me that he sung a different thing every gig, but no one has ever picked him up on it. - Submitted by: Jason
Blur's, "Song 2"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Is there any jam?
The Real Lyrics:
Pleased to meet you.
The Story: My dad was watching a music program on TV where the contestants had to guess the missing lyrics. The male contestant guessed the right answers--until the last line. Because he was a comedian, he added 'Is there any jam?' in it to get a laugh. (Well it worked, but it's left my dad disallusioned!) - Submitted by: HJ

The Story: My brother, a die-hard Blur fan, always told me how much he loved this song and shouted the lyrics out. His voice was so loud, I couldn't understand him, I always thought he sang 'we've got to puke and poo' instead of 'we've got a file on you' until I found the CD. - Submitted by: Rebbie
