Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Cast of 'The Music Man'

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!).

The Music Man (1957 Original Broadway Cast) (Angel Reissue) album at
Cast of 'The Music Man''s, "76 Trombones"
The Misheard Lyrics:
76 Trombones and a clarinet
The Real Lyrics:
76 trombones led the big parade.
The Story: My friend and I used to argue over these song lyrics all the time until I proved to her (yes she was a blond) that her version (with the clarinet) was wrong. She still sings it her way though. - Submitted by: Ken
Cast of 'The Music Man''s, "Iowa Stubborn"
The Misheard Lyrics:
But we'll give you our s***
And a back to go with it.
The Real Lyrics:
But we'll give you our shirt
And a back to go with it.
The Story: For years, I couldn't understand how they got away with singing the 'S' word in a family musical. I finally decided to check the lyrics and even though I now stand corrected, maybe the line should be re-written to match the way it sounds because 's***' rhymes with 'it' unlike 'shirt' which does not. - Submitted by: Glenn
