Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> CW McCall

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 Misheard Lyrics:
We're gonna roll this f****n' convoy
Cross the USA.
The Real Lyrics:
We're gonna roll this truckin' convoy
'Cross the USA.
The Story: I was about 6 years old or so when I misheard the lyrics to the song (it was about the time it came out too). I also kept singing the misheard lyrics because I honestly didn't know the F word was a swear word thinking that it was just a silly word that no one else ever said that I just came up with. It was a little while later when I knew the F word was a swear word. I was an adult when I found out about the real lyrics :). - Submitted by: Lisa Sousa
