Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> D4L

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!).

D4L's, "Laffy Taffy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Guy you a ho, Shine an apple taffy toss some femenist flabby Eat my roasted peanuts And don't die doing it Girl eat some candy candy
The Real Lyrics:
Gurl you don kno' Ima toss da laffy taffy Toss it flip it and slap it Bust a couple of nuts And get right back at it Gurl shake dat laffy taffy
The Story: I was singing in my school talent show and playing guitar because i was covering laffy taffy. I got to this part of teh song and forgot the lyrics so I just sung what sounded good, and then told myself they were the right lyrics. Then D4L came and beat me up and told me the real lyrics - Submitted by: Noah
