Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> CJ Bolland

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!).

DJ-Kicks album at
CJ Bolland's, "Sugar Is Sweeter (Armand Van Helden Mix)"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm a patio, I'm a patio, I'm a patio.
The Real Lyrics:
Sugar-daddy-o, Sugar-daddy-o, Sugar-daddy-o
The Story: It's the redundancy that makes this lyric sound odd... you hear it over and over until it starts to run together, and suddenly it sounds like something totally different. I first heard it in a club in DC, and I literally thought she was saying "I'm a patio" until I went and asked my DJ friend in the booth what she was playing, and what the lady was saying in it. I had missed the first part of the song where she says "Sugar daddy come for me, sugar daddy, set me free...." - Submitted by: Keith Phelps
