Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Britney Spears

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!).

(he likes the same music I do) and I was like "Um, yeah!" Well, later that day, I looked up the lyrics, and I turned beet red when I saw that I was totally wrong.

So I just went through my vocabulary at the time and, having recently had a broken arm, decided she was singing 'anaesthetic'.

Britney Spears', "Stronger"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You might think that I will make it on my own
or
You might that I walk naked on my own
The Real Lyrics:
You might think that I won't make it on my own
The Story: When I first heard the song, I thought she was saying 'You might think that I walk naked on my own'. I pictured Britney walking around, nude. I shook it off as a misunderstanding and looked in a lyrics site, that said 'You might think that I will make it on my own'. I noticed it didn't make sense, because it followed with 'But now I'm stronger than yesterday'. However, it was on a lyric site. It had to be right... I recently bought the cd. It has lyrics to 'Stronger'. I found that the lyrics on the site were wrong. I never told anyone what I thought the lyrics were at first, but I used to sing it the other way all the time. - Submitted by: Chris Smith

I began and started singing 'The taste of your p***, I'm lovin that, your toxic bum is slippin through that!'. Everyone was looking at me like I was some idiot, and when I went back to University, everyone would laugh at me! - Submitted by: Sexy1
Britney Spears', "Toxic"
The Misheard Lyrics:
With the taste of your lips, I wanna ride.
Your toxic hand slipping on my thigh.
The Real Lyrics:
With a taste of your lips, I'm on a ride.
You're toxic, I'm slipping under.
The Story: The bit where she says 'slipping under' is kind of a transition to the next line, which is why I may have thought the line was longer than it actually is. I thought that the words I wrote in the misquoted bit were the actual words; I mean, it makes sense kind of! Only found out today reading through a lyrics site. - Submitted by: Vin Barbarino

The Story: I was at my friend Kaylee house and her little sister was playing this album and this song came on. Now I'm not in any way a fan of Britney, so I had never heard most of these songs. I don't know why but for some reason I could have sworn she was talking about her underwear, so of course I had to shout 'Why the h*** is she talking about her underwear?!' Needless to say, Kaylee's sister was very amused(especially after she showed me the correct lyrics). - Submitted by: Sari
