Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Calvin Harris

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!).

Calvin Harris', "Sweet Nothing"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm living in sexy heaven
The Real Lyrics:
You’re giving me such sweet nothing
The Story: I originally thought they were saying they were surrounded by sexy people, and it was like heaven for them because they just saw beautiful faces everywhere. It might help that I first heard it in the VIP section of a certain exclusive NYC nightclub, while this girl was singing it to me as I was dancing. I'm positive she said sexy. It must be the narcissist in me! - Submitted by: Via
