Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Dan Seals

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 Seals', "God Must be a Cowboy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
God must be a Cow, Boy! at heart
The Real Lyrics:
God must be a cowboy at heart
The Story: I read in a book that the song came out in India as 'God must be a Cow, Boy!' Ever since discovering this every time I hear the song I let out a big 'moo' after the first line of the chorus. And it also changes the perception of the song too! - Submitted by: Mike
Dan Seals', "They Rage On"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Fay Ray Jones
The Real Lyrics:
They Rage On
The Story: Country song, so he’s probably talking about a woman who done him wrong and her name is Fay Ray Jones. Sounds like Fay Ray is a real player. Don’t date her. - Submitted by: Keri
