Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Bobby Brown

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!).

Bobby Brown's, "'My Perogative'"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It's my predator
The Real Lyrics:
It's my perogative
The Story: This song came over the car radio one day and my friend started singing 'it's my predator' and I turned and said what??? He repeated himself and I laughed my ass off. He didn't believe it was perogative. - Submitted by: Ken
Bobby Brown's, "My Perogative"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Don't get me wrong
I'm really not astute
Beetlejuice is not my thing
The Real Lyrics:
Don't get me wrong
I'm really not souped
Ego trips is not my thing
The Story: For aboslutely years I thought that's what Bobby Brown was saying. I made some kind of connection in my mind that he was saying he wasn't wild and crazy like Beetlejuice. I thought it was a little lame, but then again, some lyrics are. I didn't realize my mistake until I acutally heard someone at work sing it correctly with the radio. I just burst out laughing and it took a good 5 minutes for me to settle down enough to be able to tell them all what I had misheard for years. - Submitted by: Cathy Hodgson
Bobby Brown's, "My Perogative"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Don't get me wrong,
I'm really not the suit.
Eagle juice is not my drink
The Real Lyrics:
Don't get me wrong,
I'm really not souped.
Ego trips is not my thing
The Story: I was driving a couple of my friends around in my car, and one of them started singing these lyrics to the song... well, I almost wrecked because I was laughing so hard. We had to wait at least 15 minutes to tell her the real lyrics, because we were laughing so hard. - Submitted by: Kimberley Stone
