Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Clint Black

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!).

Clint Black's, "Nothing But the Taillights"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Back here with my tongue out in the wind
Back here with my toes out in the wind.
The Real Lyrics:
Back here with my thumb out in the wind.
The Story: I sang this song wrong for years and then at a family reunion my cousins and I were doing karaoke and when I sang the 'toes' version. It seemed as if half the family was ready to correct me! Oh well, I knew it was some body part or another! - Submitted by: Rainbow Pickle
Clint Black's, "State Of Mind"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm dressed like a big balloon.
The Real Lyrics:
Mind drifts like a big balloon.
The Story: This was my sister's favorite song. She was so mad at me when I told her how I had misheard the lyrics because then she could never hear the song without thinking of 'I'm dressed like a big balloon'. - Submitted by: Donna
