Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Daniel Powter

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!).

Bad Day Pt.1 album at
Daniel Powter's, "Bad Day"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The ponies they laugh at what you say.
The Real Lyrics:
The point is they laugh at what you day.
The Story: I was sitting at work and I asked my coworker, "Does he say the ponies, they laugh at what you say? If he does that is really dumb." She just laughed and said, "I don't know look it up". So then she sat over there and started singing very loud, "The ponies they laugh at what you say". She cannot sing but every one heard her. - Submitted by: jenny
