Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Bobby Helms

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 Helms', "My Special Angel"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You are my sexual angel.
The Real Lyrics:
You are my special angel.
The Story: I was at my uncle's house. He was listening to this on a CD. I heard it faintly from another room, where I was struggling to sneak a hot dog back into a package (it was a tight fit). While concentrating on that, I was sure the song said, "My sexual angel". I later asked my uncle what the song was. He told me, and even showed me the CD cover. (I never told him my mishearing.) - Submitted by: Amber D'allesio
