Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Club Nouveau

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!).

Life, Love & Pain album at
Club Nouveau's, "Lean on Me"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Wee pyjamas
The Real Lyrics:
We'd be jamming
The Story: The cover of 'Lean on Me' by Club Nouveau, had a section that sounded a little Carribean, with synthesized calypso drums, and the lines; "We'd be jammin'" This sounded like wee, an Irish/ Scottish word to describe something as small. Why Club Noveau would use a Scottish/ Irish word in a song cover, heavily influenced by Carribean music, didn't make sense to me. - Submitted by: Scott McPhee
