Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Chantels

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 Best of the Chantels album at
Chantels', "Look in My Eyes"
The Misheard Lyrics:
You still have time
So make up your mind
What's it to be
Do you want me?
I'm in my prime I'll leave in time
Herman, love me please Or darling, set me free
The Real Lyrics:
You said it that time
So glad you're all mine
What's it to be?
Do you wanna be?
And let me know, a little more time
Have that love to be, or darling set me free
The Story: Nothing much. I wondered who Herman was. This was the only Chantels song I knew with garbled lyrics, obviously because classic lead Arlene Smith had left the group. - Submitted by: Kate Karp
