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!).

With that dime, I Bausch & Lomb.
With that dime, I bought your love.
The Story: This song fascinated me when I discovered it back in 1987 on the radio. - Submitted by: Phil Scopes
You take your road in ultimate.
The paths have broken beat.
Searching for an English key.
Nothing to be free to help me.
I call you on the phone.
But never in your rise.
So sickness all alone.
It's time you really like I'm not your fool.
You take your road, I'll take mine.
The paths have both been beaten.
Searching for a change of pace.
Love needs to be sweetened.
I call you on the phone.
But never get a rise.
So sit there all alone.
It's time you realize, I'm not your fool.
The Story: The first time ever I hear this song was around one year ago when radio station playing rock songs every Sunday. When I hear that, it sounding like "I call you on the phone, but never in your rise" instead of "I call you on the phone, but never get a rise". Later, when many radio stations have this song, I adding this song into my playlist. Then, when I hear this song once again, yes, it sounding like that. For the lyrical content of this song, first, how Tom Keifer feel the pain alone when he lose his sound at that time after get a rise in music? Second, when Tom Keifer finally alright and later he driving his car alone in ultimate street, how he will find an English key? That's funny? About this song: "Nobody's Fool" is track #3 on their debut studio album, "Night Songs", released on 2 August 1986. It was written by Tom Keifer. The power ballad was reaching #13 on Billboard's Pop Chart. Making them the first time ever they have a Top 20 hit and later entering them into one-hit wonder fame. However, "Shake Me", leadoff single, failed to chart. So, their first successful single was giving to their follow-up single, "Nobody's Fool" from the same album. One reason why lyrics of this power ballad does not make sense at all and less friendly in lyrical language but finally can reaching the Top 20 because of MTV airplay and their tours to promote their albums. - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
