Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Celine Dion

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!).

Himalayan monk
Himalayan monk

Écris-moi des mots
Écris-moi des mots
Écris-moi des mots qui sonnent
The Story: In high school my sister took a French class and bought a French-language album of Celine Dion's. I remember walking by hear room while this song was playing loudly and asking her how a Himalayan monkey's son was an appropriate or riveting subject for a song. - Submitted by: Brock

A little is enough

The Misheard Lyrics:
I travelled light.
The Real Lyrics:

Et tu fwe
The Real Lyrics:
And if we

Celine Dion's, "My Heart Will Go On"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And before the goat's in
We're done.
The Real Lyrics:
And never let go 'til
We're gone.
The Story: I was in the car with my mother, singing along. This part came on, and I said to her that I never really understood why a goat's in the song. (After all, there weren't any goats in "Titanic", and that's what started this all.). She gave me a really funny look and asked me why I thought this. I told her what the song said and she cracked up laughing. She told me the correct lyrics and then I started laughing. Thank goodness, I found out what it really said. - Submitted by: Ashlee
Celine Dion's, "My Heart Will Go On"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And spaceships between us
The Real Lyrics:
And space is between us
The Story: A friend of mine was about to perform this song. I heard her sing before she went on stage. And thank God for that. She would have made such a fool of herself. :-) - Submitted by: C. Skaarup
Celine Dion's, "That's The Way It Is"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Don't get muck on your face.
The Real Lyrics:
Don't give up on your faith.
The Story: Actually, my little brother came up with this when we went out for pizza one night. He was 11 at the time, and decided to sing along. The second he said 'Don't get muck on your face', I about died. He cracked me up!!! *Sigh* What a funny l'il dude! - Submitted by: Melissa
Celine Dion's, "That's The Way It Is"
The Misheard Lyrics:
In this thing curled lurl
The Real Lyrics:
In this thing called love.
The Story: I love this song, and I can understand every single word in it perfectly, EXCEPT for where she sings "called love." I'm sure her French Canadian accent is the reason, but I've always found it fascinating that every other word of every song she sings is perfectly clear to me, except those two words in that song. And even though I KNOW what the real lyrics are, I STILL hear "curled lurl" intead of "called love." - Submitted by: Glenn
