Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Chic

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!).

Chic's, "Le Freak"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Hey, stride!
The Real Lyrics:
Freak Out!
The Story: The first time I heard this song was when I was watching the movie "Heavyweights", it was playing when Ben Stiller's character was making the fat kids do striding exercises. The music was playing in the background and I couldn't hear it too well. "Hey, stride!" seemed like more appropriate lyrics for the scene than "Freak Out!" - Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe
