Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Dan Hill

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!).

Dan Hill's, "Sometimes When We Touch"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I wanna hold you 'til the fear in me slip slides
The Real Lyrics:
I wanna hold you 'til the fear in me subsides
The Story: My wife was asking me to put together a compilation cd for her, and she's not so hot at song titles. Often, she'll sing a line or two and I'll figure out what song she's talking about. This particular time, she kept insisting that she wanted the song 'Slip Slides'. I insisted there was no such song. Finally, she said 'You know.... I wanna hold you 'til the fear in me slip slides'! - Submitted by: Dave Sobecki
