Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> City High

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!).

City High's, "Wha Would You Do"
The Misheard Lyrics:
What would you do if your son was a ho
Crying all alone on the bathroom phone
Cause he's hungry,
and the only way to feed him is too sleep with a man for a little bit of money
The Real Lyrics:
what would you do if your son was at home
crying all alone on the bedroom floor
cause he's hungry, and the only way to feed him is to sleep with a man for a little bit of money
The Story: I was listning to music with friends in the car and this song came on. I sang those lyrics and they thought that they had been wrong, and started singing mine instead. When I found out the real version, I never told them, so as far as I know they don't know the real version. - Submitted by: A. M.
