Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Bush

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!).

Bush's, "Chemicals Between Us"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Carrie comes between us
The Real Lyrics:
Chemicals between us
The Story: A whole lot of my friends and I thought the song was really cool becuase it said my name, and then we found out that it didn't. It was funny, because I really like Gwen Stefani, but I've always had this huge crush on Gavin Rossdale too. Haha. - Submitted by: Carrie
Bush's, "Chemicals Between Us"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Kevin Costner's p****
The Real Lyrics:
Chemicals between us
The Story: I was listening to WAPL-the Rockin' Apple, and a (female) caller requested 'the song about Kevin Costner's p****'. The DJs were laughing so hard they just cut to the song! I'm sure myself and many others had a good laugh at that. - Submitted by: Andrew
Bush's, "Everything Zen"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Schlossy wants my wild eye.
The Real Lyrics:
Try and see it once my way.
The Story: My daughter and I both love Bush the band, and we thought that 'Schlossy' must be some Buddist God who wanted people to give up their wild lifestyle. When we finally read the real lyrics we couldn't stop laughing! - Submitted by: sandybeach
Bush's, "Everything Zen"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Straussie was my wife.
The Real Lyrics:
Try and see it once my way.
The Story: My best friend and I were in 8th grade when Bush was popular. No one knew who they were at our school really but us. We used to listen to this song on our discman and try to figure out what the heck he was saying. We knew this was not right but we honestly had no clue what he was saying so we just pretended that he was in love with some woman, strangely named Straussie, and laughed about it a lot. Ahh, the days before being able to check the lyrics on the internet. - Submitted by: Mel
Bush's, "Glycerine "
The Misheard Lyrics:
Must be the scent, of CK-N!

Bush's, "Machinehead"
The Misheard Lyrics:
God, I must see Heaven
It's better than the rest
Agree to rest, must see Heaven.
The Real Lyrics:
Got a machinehead
Better than the rest
Green to red machinehead.
The Story: It wasn't until recently that I figured out they were saying 'machinehead' when I downloaded the song and read the title. I just thought it was a religious song. - Submitted by: Laura
Bush's, "Mouth"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Nothing hurts like your meowth.
The Real Lyrics:
