Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Bryan Adams

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!).

Bryan Adams', "Heaven"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I've been waiting for so long.
For something to ride.
For love to come along.
Now my dreams are coming true.
From the good times to the bad.
Yeah, I'll be standing there, I knew.
The Real Lyrics:
I've been waiting for so long.
For something to arrive.
For love to come along.
Now our dreams are coming true.
Through the good times and the bad.
Yeah, I'll be standing there by you.
The Story: The first time ever I hear this song was more than four years ago. At that time, a radio station put this song into oldies playlist. But, it's not being oldies anymore. Because, this song was released on 9 April 1985. About this song: "Heaven" is track #4 on his fourth studio album, "Reckless", released on 5 November 1984. It was written by Bryan himself and Jim Vallance. It reaching #11 on his native country, #38 on the UK Singles Chart, topping Billboard's Pop Chart, and also entering the Top 40 internationally. DJ Sammy once again covered a song but with "Heaven". In this version, it featuring vocals by Do. Fortunately, DJ Sammy version was reaching #8 on Billboard's Pop Chart. Making it DJ Sammy's only major hit on Billboard's Pop Chart. It also making Bryan's first number-one hit single on that chart and entering Bryan himself, DJ Sammy, and Do, into one-hit wonder with this song. DJ Sammy version of "Heaven" was also reaching the Top 50 internationally and topping the UK Singles Chart while Bryan version was previously appeared on the soundtrack album, "A Night in Heaven". - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
Bryan Adams', "Hold On To The Night"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Hold on to the night
Hold on to the mammaries.
The Real Lyrics:
Hold on to the night
Hold on to the memories.
The Story: We all knew what the lyrics really were but this guy I went to high school with always insisted on singing it 'his way'. High school guys and boobs (mammory glands), go figure. - Submitted by: Tootbloom
Bryan Adams', "Let's Make A Night To Remember"

Our shadows on the wall and our pants everywhere.
The Real Lyrics:
Our shadows on the wall and our hands everywhere.

Bryan Adams', "Run To You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm gonna runter you
I'm gonna runter you
And when the feeling's right
I'm gonna stay all night
I'm gonna runter you.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm gonna run to you
I'm gonna run to you
And when the feeling's right
I'm gonna stay all night
I'm gonna run to you.
The Story: This came out when I was about 8 years old. And, not knowing what 'runter' could mean, I took a stab in the dark and assumed it to be a grown-up term for having sex. Thank goodness I worked out the real lyrics before I started having relationships. It could have been extremely embarrassing! - Submitted by: V Sandison
Bryan Adams', "Run to You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
She died of change when she found out about you and I.
The Real Lyrics:
But that'd change if she ever found out about you and I.
The Story: I was in grade school when I first heard "Run To You", and that's what I thought Bryan sang. I had always imagined that this person was crushed by several thousand dollars worth of loose change that fell out of a window, after she had learned some terrible news. - Submitted by: Al

I got my first real six-string.
The Story: My sister used to sing the misheard lyrics out loud, until one day, in the German 'Comeback Show' she listened to this song performed by Smokie's former singer and raged about him, 'Hey, look at that dork! He's singing it all wrong! F*** this damn censorship!'. - Submitted by: Archae
Bryan Adams', "Summer of '69"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Every time I play that old six-string
I think about you on the one-way run.
The Real Lyrics:
Everytime I play that old six-string
Think about you, wonder what went wrong.
The Story: I'm pretty sure my lyrics are right and that Bryan's handlers are wrong. I've listened to the lyrics at all different speeds and volumes. Anthony Crispino and I are "pretty sure" I'm right! - Submitted by: Nick Cee
Bryan Adams', "Summer of '69"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Got my first real sex dream
Oh, at the five and dime
Played it 'til my fingers bled
Was the summer of '69
The Real Lyrics:
Got my first real six string
The Story: I was belting my version of the 1st verse in a car with friends on the way to the beach in '89. I was 16. Everyone started cracking up. I think it works my way too! I had this entire scenario concocted in my head - Submitted by: Beka Economopoulos
Bryan Adams', "Summer of '69"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Got my first real sex dream
Pulled it after time & time
Played it till my fingers bled
Was the summer of '69
The Real Lyrics:
Got my first real 6 string
Bought it at the 5 & dime
Played it till my fingers bled
Was the summer of '69
The Story: It kinda hung together thematically in an oversexed teen fantasy kind of way.

Summer of '69 was that year he first had a sex dream - a dream about mutual oral seeds (69) and then proceeded to oversees over it and "replay it", pulling it time after time, until his fingers bled. - Submitted by: Wilf
