Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> ccr

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!).

Bayou Country album at
ccr's, "Down On the Corner"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Bodies in the street
Willie and the poor boys are playin'
bring your n****r happy feet
The Real Lyrics:
Out in the street
Willie and the Poorboys are playin'
bring a nickle, tap your feet
The Story: My 14 year old son, not having much familiarity with the group has just become enthralleed with CCR, but was quite amusing as he described his picture of the chorus to this song. His imagination conjured up dead bodies lying in the street, and folks carry bags of feet with them to this strange gathering. When we told him what the real lyrics were he laughed at himself for hours - Submitted by: Bob
