Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Christina Aguilera, Pink, Mya & Li'l Kim

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!).

Christina Aguilera, Pink, Mya & Li'l Kim's, "Lady Marmelade"
The Misheard Lyrics:
He sat in a pool while she freshened up
He started a pool while she freshened up
The Real Lyrics:
He sat in her boudoir while she freshened up
The Story: Overall, I like the orginal Labelle version of this song. However, I am better able to make out the words in the 2001 'Moulin Rouge' version. One problem I had, though, was when Pink sings this line in the new version. Even while watching the dynamic performance of this song on the 2001 mtv Movie Awards, I still didn't get that line straight, until I saw it printed on someone else's misheard lyric entry on your website. Thanks for setting the record straight! - Submitted by: Sharon 'Chicken Wing' Krebs
