Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Corey Hart

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!).

The Real Lyrics:
Don't be afraid of the guy in shades, oh no
The Story: We replayed this over and over while driving home, pretty sure that we got it right. Of course it made no sense, so we just laughed and laughed, We'd randomly sing this to each other over the next several days. It was hilarious. - Submitted by: Jason

Corey Hart's, "Sunglasses at Night"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Don't burn some fat on the guy in shades, oh no
The Real Lyrics:
Don't mess around with the guy in shades, oh no
The Story: I was 4 years old when I misheard this; I was eating with my family at a Taco Bell when this song was playing (hence the mishearing), and I kept singing along to the song this way; my mother told me it was inappropriate for me to be singing about burning fat at such a young age. - Submitted by: MO

The Story: These lyrics would be funny, since a guy in shades and wearing plaid would be sort of a human oxymoron, if you will! - Submitted by: Chris
