Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Brandy and Monica

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!).

Brandy and Monica's, "The Boy Is Mine"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You need to give it up.
Hattabody knows.
It's not hard to see, the boy is mine.
The Real Lyrics:
You need to give it up.
Had about enough.
It's not hard to see, the boy is mine.
The Story: I've been singing it as hattabody knows since the song came out. It wasn't until last year while watching Glee, when they did the Brandy/Monica special that I was able to hear it clearly say "had about enough." The best part of this story is me trying to explain to my friends what I thought the lyrics really were. I told my one friend first. We were then in the car with my other friend trying to explain it to her. She starts hysterical laughing thinking I was singing "had a bloody nose." We then tell her no, and proceed to explain I was singing "hattabody." My girlfriend had to put some sass into it and snap her fingers in front of her face and say "hattabody knows" in order for my friend to get it. Now hattabody is a part of our everyday vocab. - Submitted by: Lisa
Brandy and Monica's, "The Boy is Mine"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The boy's mind
The Real Lyrics:
The boy is mine
The Story: When I heard the beginning of the song, it sounds like "the boy's mind". It's also apparent we hear "mind" instead of "mine", and vice versa. - Submitted by: Cody Finke
