Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Boyz II Men

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!).


Boyz II Men - Legacy: Greatest Hits Collection album at Amazon.com
Boyz II Men's, "End Of The Road"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Although we go, beauty and the sorrow
Still I can't let go
It's so natural.
The Real Lyrics:
Although we've come, to the end of the road
Still I can't let you go
It's unnatural.
The Story: I sung those lyrics for 10 years without anyone noticing, until my big sister asked how I could sing that without noticing that the title of the song is actually "End of the Road". - Submitted by: Aroha Momtgonery
Boyz II Men's, "On Bended Knee"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Gonna swallow my brain, feel it slowly
Stomp on your fingers, the blame is on me.
The Real Lyrics:
Gonna swallow my pride, say I'm sorry
Stop pointing fingers, the blame is on me.
The Story: I asked my sister why someone would sing about swallowing his brai. She looked at me funny and asked me to sing the song. She then burst out laughing and said, "He said, 'Swallow his pride!!'" Then trying to save face, I said, "Well, then he goes on about stomping on fingers." And she started laughing even harder and said, "He said 'Stop pointing fingers!!'" She proceeded to tell everyone she knew about my faux pa. - Submitted by: Niki
Boyz II Men's, "On Bended Knee"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm gonna swallow my pride
Say I'm sorry
Stomp on your fingers
The blame is on me.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm gonna swallow my pride
Say I'm sorry
Stop pointing fingers
The blame is on me.
The Story: My friend Tim was singing along and he was the one who actually misheard "stomp on your fingers". I thought it was funny, because why would he stomp on her hand if he's trying to apologize? - Submitted by: Kristin
