Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Bob Seger And The Silver Bullet Band

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!).

The Misheard Lyrics:
Workin' on a night moon
The Real Lyrics:
Workin' on the night moves
The Story: I wondered why in the heck he was working on a night moon, and what a night moon was. Attaching night to moon seemed a little redundant, kind of like a day sun. - Submitted by: Joe
The Misheard Lyrics:
Working on the night crews
The Real Lyrics:
Working on the night moves
The Story: My little sister told my mom that this was the name of the song. I had a radio playing on the table while we were peeling apples. Working on a night shift - that made sense at the time. - Submitted by: Night Owl
Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band's, "Shame on the Moon"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Until you've been to Saturn, man
You don't know how he feels
Ohhh, blame it on midnight
Hmmm, shame on the Moon
The Real Lyrics:
Until you've been beside a man
You don't know how he feels
Ohhh, blame it on midnight
Hmmm, shame on the Moon
The Story: me and my across-the-street neighbor were looking at the Pleiades star cluster (that's called "Subaru" in Japanese, hence the car name) as well as the Moon itself through my telescope. We had my radio on, laying in the grass and this song came on. My neighbor sang the mistaken line and considering that we were viewing the MOON that night it made sense at the time. - Submitted by: Night Owl
