Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Carroll O'Connor & Jean Stapleton

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!).

Carroll O'Connor & Jean Stapleton's, "Those Were The Days"
The Misheard Lyrics:
G. R. O. LaSalle Redgrave
The Real Lyrics:
Gee, our old LaSalle ran great.
The Story: I misheard this for years. I even strained to hear it each week, knowing that it made no sense. Finally, I was walking through the room and heard it correctly. For some reason, maybe my medication had worn off. - Submitted by: Mark
Carroll O'Connor & Jean Stapleton's, "Those Were the Days"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Buy the wiglet milliplaide
Gee, are all the shower at rate?
The Real Lyrics:
Boy the way Glen Miller played
Gee, our old LaSalle ran great.
The Story: I often wondered, 'What's a wiglet milliplaide, and why do they advertise it before their show?' I also wondered if someone was trying to get a good deal on a 'pay shower' somewhere! - Submitted by: Terri Powers
